“JUSTICE IS THE FUNDAMENTAL LAW OF SOCIETY” —THOMAS JEFFERSON TO PIERRE SAMUEL DUPONT DE NEMOURS, 1816.

FOUNDED BY THOMAS JEFFERSON in 1819, the University of Virginia School of Law is a world-renowned training ground for distinguished lawyers and public servants. Located in Charlottesville, just two hours southwest of Washington, D.C., the Law School offers students a unique environment in which to study law.

WITH OVER 20,000 STUDENTS and more than 2,100 faculty members, the University of Virginia has been ranked first or second among the nation’s public universities since 1984. The University’s diverse intellectual life is open to law students: Up to 12 credits from other departments may be counted toward the J.D. degree.

LAW SCHOOL SHOULD BE ABOUT MORE than going to class, reading about cases and writing briefs. It should include collaborative problem-solving, a lively exchange of ideas and a commitment to working as part of a team — the same skills required in the legal profession. At Virginia, law students share their experiences in a cooperative spirit, both in and out of the classroom, and build a network that lasts well beyond their three years here.

VIRGINIA OFFERS 20 CLINICS that give students access to real-world cases, contact with clients and the experience that gives them a head start as attorneys. Programs such as those offered in law and business, international law, environmental law and human rights make legal studies come to life. Students also benefit from skill-building courses in public speaking, professional ethics and legal writing.

School’s INNOCENCE PROJECT CLINIC and partnering organizations. Justin Wolfe, who has been on death row since 2002, had been convicted of murder for hire and sentenced to die in a case that received national attention and involved an extensive drug ring run by suburban middle-class youths in Northern Virginia. Clinic students reviewed prosecutors’ files for improperly withheld evidence, a process that culminated in the judge’s July 2011 ruling. “It’s rare to get relief in death penalty cases and rarer still to lay it at the feet of prosecutors,” said Deirdre Enright, director of investigation for the Innocence Project Clinic. “I think we all became incredibly invested in the outcome of this case due to the enormity of the stakes involved and the injustice an adverse decision would have represented,” said Allison Harnack, a student who worked on the case. “The ruling filled me with an indescribable sense of relief.”

school exam, she was in Iraq discussing women’s rights at an international conference. During her time as a law student, Houlihan began advising Iraqi officials on issues like women’s and minority rights, and traveled to the country four times in the past year as a fellow with the Institute for International Law and Human Rights, an organization based in Washington, D.C. She began building her expertise during a summer internship following her first year of law school. “I work directly with parliamentarians, I’ve sat with ministers, I’ve met the speaker of parliament, I’ve marked up draft legislation — I have direct input, and I can’t see where else I’d ever have the opportunity to do that,” Houlihan said. “I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Who else gets to do something like this? I’m incredibly lucky.”

THE SUPREME COURT LITIGATION CLINIC represented clients in four cases before the Supreme Court this term, and students traveled to Washington, D.C., in March to hear clinic instructors participate in two oral arguments on the same day. WELLS HARRELL ’11 also traveled to hear another case argued in April, Nevada Commission on Ethics v. Carrigan, which the clinic won in a unanimous decision. “Appellate advocacy involves so much solitary work that putting a human face on a given case can be difficult sometimes,” Harrell said. “But seeing our clients face to face and hearing them express praise and appreciation for our work underscored that what we do has real consequences for real people, and that our clients deserve the best of our efforts. I’m glad we were able to deliver for them.”

STUDENTS IN THE VETERANS MEDICAL DISABILITY APPEALS PRO BONO PROGRAM work on the cases of veterans appealing denied disability benefit claims. Volunteers recently helped a disabled Navy veteran suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder appeal his case after he was denied medical benefits. Following the students’ efforts, the veteran’s case was remanded to Veterans Affairs by the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. “The client is going to get another chance to present the record before the agency and present his case,” said KARLA SOLORIA ’11. “Part of our argument was that he didn’t previously have the opportunity to pull together all the evidence that he needed to prove his case.”

As an undergraduate, JAMAR WALKER ’11 was a member of the University of Virginia Mock Trial team that won the 2006 and 2007 national championships. In law school he continued to coach the undergraduate mock trial team alongside law professor Toby Heytens, and also built trial experience through the Criminal Defense Clinic. “Each student in the clinic is assigned three cases per semester. My first case actually went to trial,” Walker said. “Leaving law school with a trial already under my belt will benefit me immensely as I pursue a career in litigation.” After law school Walker plans to clerk for U.S. Judge

AT VIRGINIA LAW, STUDENTS DESIGN THEIR LEGAL EDUCATION AND THEIR INTELLECTUAL LIFE.

VIRGINIA OFFERS MORE THAN 200 COURSES and seminars each year. Students pursuing interdisciplinary ideas benefit from an environment where nearly half of all law faculty also hold advanced degrees in fields such as psychology, economics, philosophy, history, medicine and theology. Each first-year student takes one “small-section” class of 30 students during the first semester, which helps bond classmates from the start. Outside the classroom, students plan and program many of the conferences, lectures and panels that enrich the school’s intellectual life.

Students may create their own study abroad program and spend one semester studying law in a foreign university law school or law department. The Law School also offers January term courses in Paris and Israel.

AN INTELLECTUAL COMMUNITY Virginia gives students the opportunity to network with practicing attorneys and learn about cutting-edge legal issues by hosting a variety of conferences, symposia, lectures and panels. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder (near right) spoke at graduation in 2011 and remained for the reception to meet students, families and faculty members.

INVESTIGATING HUMAN RIGHTS ON THE GROUND IN MALAWI Students who participate in the Human Rights Study Project (HRSP) journey abroad to study human rights issues in foreign countries. This year’s team found widespread poverty crippling the legal infrastructure of Malawi, which contributed to human rights abuses. “This trip has enabled me to better understand the challenges facing modern African societies, given their colonial and customary legacies,” said Rob Kiss. Past teams of students, called Cowan Fellows, have traveled to countries such as Egypt, Cuba, Lebanon, Syria and China.

VIRGINIA’S PROFESSORS BUILD RELATIONSHIPS WITH STUDENTS. They are leaders in the intellectual life of the community, organizing and speaking at lectures and other events, working with student organizations, volunteering for pro bono service and building new academic programs when they find student interest. They also join students in creating a community outside the classroom by contributing to efforts to raise money for public service grants or other student-run projects.

FACULTY COMMIT TO MORE THAN JUST LEADING CLASSES.

False confessions, invalid forensic analysis, eyewitness misidentifications and other systemic flaws in the criminal justice system contributed to the wrongful conviction of the first 250 people exonerated by DNA tests, PROFESSOR BRANDON GARRETT writes in his book, “Convicting the Innocent: Where Criminal Prosecutions Go Wrong.” “The goal was to see what patterns there are,” Garrett said. “The errors that repeated over and over again across the 250 cases were the result of bad barrels, and not a few bad apples. They resulted from unsound but systemic practices that allowed well-intentioned people to contribute to convicting the innocent.”

PROFESSOR MARGO BAGLEY takes students from her Patent and International Patent Law classes on a field trip to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, where they meet Chief Judge Randall Rader in his chambers. Rader and his clerks brief the students on the morning’s cases, after which they hear the oral arguments. Finally, Rader debriefs the class. “It is a wonderful experience that the students really enjoy,” Bagley said.

Students have the opportunity to take one-credit SEMINARS IN ETHICAL VALUES, which are usually taught from the professors’ homes and resemble a book or film club. REBECCA GANTT ’11 took a seminar offered by Professors Risa Goluboff and Rich Schragger, who are married. The course included material on being a lawyer and balancing work-life issues. “It’s practical in that we discuss what type of life we hope to have, and think about how to balance all of the different things that we might want to do after law school. But it’s also been very interesting on a more theoretical level to read a bit of social science literature that gives some fairly surprising statistics about women in the workplace, including graduates of this law school,” Gantt said. “It was also really special being able to have the class at Professors Goluboff and Schragger’s home. Not only was dinner provided, but it created a wonderful atmosphere.” READING LIST: I Don’t Know How She Does It, BY ALLISON PEARSON Get to Work, BY LINDA HIRSCHMAN “Lawyers at Mid-Career,” BY Virginia Law Professor JOHN MONAHAN AVAILABLE AT: http://bit.ly/mpCbF6 “Rethinking the New Maternalism,” BY NAOMI MEZEY and CORNELIA T.L.

PROFESSOR FREDERICK SCHAUER was named by National Jurist magazine as one of the three most influential people in legal education. Schauer was cited for his work in the areas of rules and the First Amendment. “A fair amount of my work over the years has been somewhat skeptical about the unqualified celebration and advocacy of free speech,” Schauer said. “Freedom of speech and freedom of the press have important virtues, but they also bring costs, and some of the standard slogans and advocacy deserve a little closer analysis than we have traditionally gotten from much of the free speech culture.”

WE BELIEVE LAWYERS HAVE AN OBLIGATION TO SERVE. VIRGINIA UPHOLDS THOMAS JEFFERSON’S CONVICTION that lawyers have a special obligation to serve the public interest. Many students at Virginia volunteer their legal services, work in public service jobs over the summer and pursue public interest careers after graduating. Virginia supports these students through the Virginia Loan Forgiveness Program, the Mortimer Caplin Public Service Center, the Pro Bono Project,

THE MORTIMER CAPLIN PUBLIC SERVICE CENTER provides individual counseling and sponsors events focused on educating students about working in the public sector. THE PRO BONO PROJECT is a voluntary program encouraging all students to complete at least 75 hours of pro bono service during their three years of law school. Opportunities are available locally and nationwide. The center also organizes pro bono projects that focus on areas such as child advocacy, immigration law and veterans’ disability claims.

THE MORTIMER CAPLIN PUBLIC SERVICE CENTER helps students applying for internships and postgraduate fellowships, and provides a number of awards to students.

“It wouldn’t have been possible without the PILA grant,” he said. “It’s so helpful to have a grant that can help support my housing needs while I’m there.”

LAW STUDENTS volunteer for a week each year to help legal aid clients and in government offices across the country through an alternative spring break program, a tradition begun three years ago by the Public Interest Law Association.

PROGRAM IN LAW AND PUBLIC SERVICE The Program in Law and Public Service offers participants a curriculum that includes faculty mentoring, guaranteed funding for summer public service jobs and access to seminars relating to public service

law. Each year up to 20 first-year students and five second-year students are accepted into the program. Genevieve Aguilar ’13 joined the program to help immigrants transition into the United States and plans to work on immigrant policy in

the federal government. Aguilar said she was excited to participate in the program with others who want to serve. “Both the students and professors are extraordinary people who are passionate about public service,” she said. “It’s been

a privilege to have a supportive environment in which to hear about others’ experiences and learn about crucial skills in public interest lawyering.” READ MORE: http://bit.ly/l07L2vS

ACCESS TO 10 ACADEMIC JOURNALS and 70 student organizations, from social clubs to legal aid groups, ensures that students explore the world outside law school and expand their legal experiences while leading well-rounded lives.

EIGHT MEMBERS OF THE BLACK LAW STUDENTS ASSOCIATION traveled to Port-au-Prince in January 2011 to speak to Haitian government officials, the United Nations, international NGOs and grassroots organizations about their efforts to address the high rates of sexual assault in the internally displaced persons camps. They summarized their findings in a report in April.

REBECCA GANTT ’11 was responsible for Tomahawk missiles and missile launchers on a U.S. Navy destroyer before coming to law school. “One big factor for my decision to come here was the impressive statistics on alumni giving rates compared to other top law schools — and after three years, I understand why alumni continue to be so supportive of the school,” she said.  “You’ll experience absolutely first-rate teaching here with professors who are truly engaged with students. And the student body makes what has the potential to be a very painful and stressful experience a very enjoyable one instead.”
