The University of Virginia School of Law (Virginia Law or UVA Law) was founded in Charlottesville in 1819 by Thomas Jefferson as one of the original subjects taught at his "academical village," the University of Virginia. Virginia Law is the fourth-oldest active law school in the United States and the second-oldest continuously operating law school. The law school offers the J.D., LL.M., and S.J.D. degrees in law and hosts visiting scholars, visiting researchers and a number of legal research centers.

Virginia Law is perennially regarded as one of the 10 most prestigious law schools in the United States. U.S. News & World Report currently ranks Virginia Law as tied for eighth in the nation with Michigan, in 2018, and in 2011, ranked Virginia Law as sixth among major law firm recruiters.[3] In the 2010 Super Lawyers Law School Rankings, Virginia Law ranks fourth in the nation.[4] In the 2015 Above the Law rankings, Virginia Law ranked sixth in the nation.[5] A 2013 Above the Law report also notes that Virginia is second in the number of graduates leading the nation's top 100 firms. [6]

A study published in the Journal of Legal Education ranked Virginia Law fourth in the number of partners in the National Law Journal's top 100 firms.[7] Virginia Law also places high in clerkships, recently ranking behind only Harvard Law School and Yale Law School.[8] The Princeton Review ranked Virginia Law as first in "Best Quality of Life" among the nation's law schools, along with second in "Best Professors," third in "Best Classroom Experience," fifth in "Career Prospects," and seventh in "Toughest to Get Into."[9] The 2016 QS World University Rankings for law school, places Virginia Law in the range of 51–100 worldwide and the 13th-best law school in U.S.[10]

Notable alumni include U.S. Supreme Court Justices James Clark McReynolds and Stanley Forman Reed, as well as numerous members of U.S. Congress and judges on federal courts throughout the United States. The Law School has 19,984 alumni in all 50 states, more than 60 foreign countries and several U.S. protectorates, and the Law School's alumni giving rate of more than 50 percent for the past 11 years is among the highest of the nation's law schools.[11] Virginia Law recently completed an eight-year capital campaign, raising $173.9 million to enhance the student experience.[11]

Campus[edit]

Virginia Law receives no funding from the state; instead the school depends upon the generosity of private donors, its substantial endowment (US $ 495 million[16]) and student tuition payments. In 1995-1997, the Law School used entirely donated funds to renovate and expand its buildings on the University's North Grounds to include the former facilities of the Darden Graduate School of Business Administration which built a new campus several hundred yards away.

The Arthur J. Morris Law Library holds more than 820,000 volumes, including substantial collections of federal, state, and international documents, manuscripts, archives, and online research databases.[17]

Student organizations[edit]

The Law School maintains an extensive roster of student organizations, including chapters of the Federalist Society, the American Constitution Society and the St. Thomas More Society.

The Virginia Law Weekly, the Law School's student-run weekly newspaper, has been published since 1948. The paper has been cited in several court cases including the U.S. Supreme Court case Patterson v. New York.[18] In addition to its news content, the VLW also contains student-submitted content which often includes humorous and creative pieces. The Law Weekly has won the American Bar Association's previous three "Best Newspaper Awards," in 2006, 2007, and 2008.[19]

Each spring over a hundred students write, direct and perform in The Libel Show, a comedy and musical theatre production that was first organized in 1904. Its performers roast Law School professors, student stereotypes and life in Charlottesville throughout each of its three nightly showings. Professors write and sing their response to the students' jokes at the penultimate performance.

The school hosts an annual softball tournament to raise money for ReadyKids, an organization that provides care and counseling for at-risk families in Central Virginia, and the Public Interest Law Association, which provides public service internships for law students. 51 different law schools send teams to compete in men's and co-rec brackets. In 2017, $25,000 were raised.[20]

The Law School is host to 10 academic journals, including the Virginia Law Review, one of the most cited law journals in the country:[21]
