Located about two hours southwest of Washington, D.C., Charlottesville is the heart of a region of 200,000 residents. The city’s nightclubs, concert venues and festivals create an exceptionally vibrant live music scene, and theater and opera are community fixtures. Area restaurants have been featured in publications such as Gourmet magazine and The New York Times. Each year the city hosts the nationally acclaimed Virginia Film Festival and gathers literary luminaries for the Virginia Festival of the Book. Law students seeking a community in which they can relax, enjoy plentiful entertainment and appreciate abundant natural beauty to balance the rigors of law school will find a home in Charlottesville.
