UVA is a wonderful place to attend law school. My peers are intelligent and interesting people. UVA also does well fostering a sense of community.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2019

My experiences so far have been overwhelmingly positive. The faculty and staff are exceedingly helpful. The students are brilliant and bring a wealth of experience and diverse perspectives to the table. The surrounding area includes numerous vineyards, breweries, excellent restaurants, a variety of outdoor activities, and numerous athletic events. My only complaint is that because the area is so awesome, the cost of living is pretty high (although I am originally from NC, which has a really low cost of living, so I may be biased). Additionally, I have not been super impressed with the bus system nor the parking situation, and the traffic is unusually bad for the size of the community. However, again I am relatively new here, so it is possible I am not used to the system yet. Regardless, I think the University of Virginia and specifically the Law School and the Batten School cannot be beat!

Charlottesville is beautiful, and the student body at the law school has a great sense of community. There are many social events, and housing is not too expensive. This is not the best school to go to in terms of diversity or career support if you are interested in any type of work other than corporate work. Even if you are interested in corporate work, sometimes there is not much guidance on how to take the next steps in preparing for and finding a job. The administration is not particularly supportive or communicative, and can be downright cold at times. That being said, UVA Law is unique in that it offers public service fellowships to students without jobs after graduation, and has a reasonable loan forgiveness plan. Overall the school is a good place, but if you are not wealthy, white, and corporate-focused, you will likely feel out of place.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2014

UVA is a very competitive law school, and classes reflect its academic competitiveness, but I think the quality of life of a UVA Law student is among the best in the nation. Almost everyone at the school is down-to-earth and someone you would enjoy hanging out with outside of class. The professors are also, with a few exceptions, phenomenal.

UVa law provides quality education, and, for the most part, an education here will give good job opportunities. The faculty is very supportive and genuinely want students to excel.
