Student Life - Graduate Studies in Law

It is hard to describe in a few sentences the enriching experiences accumulated during the UVA Law School LL.M. program. I don't want you to think that this is just mere puffery. Based on my UVA Law experience I strongly believe that as your studies here progress you will feel similarly.  

To prove my point I would like to list some of the perks of living and studying in Charlottesville: 

Outstanding, experienced and very friendly faculty and supporting staff.

The freedom to craft your own set of classes based on your interests. More

Student Life

The University of Virginia School of Law is enriched by the scope of student organizations, extracurricular activities, and the community spirit that permeates student life. Opportunities include 10 academic journals, about 70 interest-centered organizations, student governance (both Law School and University), and a vibrant range of social and athletic activities. In addition, the University and local community are both large enough to offer something to meet anyone's interests and small enough to make active participation compatible with a student's rigorous academic schedule.

Graduate students are encouraged to participate in the many student organizations at the Law School. In addition, the Graduate Law Student's Association, composed of LL.M. and S.J.D. candidates, sponsors social activities and helps foster a sense of community here at the Law School.

Virginia values its reputation as a school that produces graduates who are skilled in law and balanced in life. It encourages students to enjoy their legal studies, to expand intellectually and personally, and join the thousands of successful alumni who recall their law school years with warmth and enthusiasm. LL.M. graduates carry on the Virginia tradition through active overseas alumni associations.
