Getting to the Law School

The Grounds

The David A. Harrison III Law Grounds reflect a recent $46 million expansion and renovation project funded entirely by private support from alumni and friends. The Law Grounds feature new classrooms, seminar rooms, and moot courtrooms; comprehensive computer facilities; an expanded library with a three-story reading room; new dining facilities; attractive offices for student organizations; and numerous student lounges. Surrounded by inviting gardens and an elegant, tree-lined lawn, the setting reflects Jefferson’s conviction that locating an intellectual community within a beautiful environment fosters learning and personal growth.

Law Library Tours

Law library tours are available to classes and other student groups, including those outside the Law School who need access to legal materials. Librarians can provide general orientation tours or explain specialized areas of the collection. Contact the Reference Desk (434-924-7465 or refdesk@law.virginia.edu) to arrange a tour of the library.

Virtual Tours

For those applicants unable to visit us in person, we have created a number of video tours to introduce you to life at UVA Law and the greater Charlottesville community.
