Washington College of Law, American University

American University Washington College of Law (AUWCL) offers an opportunity for the study of law in the center of the nation’s legal institutions. The law school moved to its home at Tenley Campus in January 2016. Located one block from the Tenleytown Metro Station, this eight-acre campus is minutes from downtown DC, while still offering a green campus environment in one of the city’s most beautiful neighborhoods. Founded in 1896 by two women, the law school is national in character. AUWCL offers renowned programs in experiential learning (clinics, externships, trial advocacy), international law, law and government, intellectual property, business, environmental law, human rights, and gender. It is committed to the development of the intellectual abilities, professional values, and practical skills required to prepare lawyers to practice in an increasingly complex and transnational world.
