THE WVU LAW EXPERIENCE.
WVU Law teaches with a clear purpose—to prepare law students to be client ready the day they graduate. Class work is enhanced by experiential opportunities available through the law clinics, externships and fellowships, and career services.Academics
A CULTURE OF EXCELLENCE.
WVU Law students come from a variety of backgrounds and hold a variety of interests that contribute to a quality law school experience in and out of the classroom. Exemplary students and 30 student organizations show excellence in a number of ways, including volunteerism, random acts of kindness, and outstanding co-curricular or extracurricular performance. We recognize—and foster—that effort, which contributes to our culture of excellence.Student Life
