Washington and Lee University
Lexington, United States- Virginia


University description (as per official university website)

Origins and Location

Founded in 1749, Washington and Lee University is named for two of the most influential men in American history: George Washington, whose generous endowment of $20,000 in 1796 helped the fledgling school (then known as Liberty Hall Academy) survive, and Robert E. Lee, whose presidency and innovative leadership brought the University into the national limelight.

The University is located in the historic city of Lexington (population 7,000) in the Great Valley of Virginia about three hours southwest of
Washington, D.C.

Academic Divisions

Washington and Lee is comprised of two undergraduate divisions, the College and the Williams School of Commerce, Economics, and Politics; and a graduate School of Law. The undergraduate institution offers 39 majors and more than 1,100 courses—an enviable curriculum for a school of only 1,770 undergraduate students. W&L also features the only fully-accredited business school and fully-accredited journalism program among the nation's top-tier liberal arts colleges.

The School of Law, one of the smallest nationally recognized legal programs in the country at about 400 students, has its own dean and faculty. It offers both the Juris Doctor degree and the Master of Laws degree in United States Law for international law graduates.

* The College a division of the University that includes the freshman year and advanced work in the humanities, natural sciences, mathematics and computer science, and in certain social sciences.
* The Ernest Williams II School of Commerce, Economics, and Politics: the Williams School offers majors in accounting, business administration, economics, and politics.
All students, whether they intend to pursue majors in the College or in the Williams School, are enrolled in the College during their freshman year. Although each has its own faculty and is administered by its own dean, there is a close relationship between the two divisions, and students are free to take electives in each during their time at Washington and Lee.
* The School of Law
The School of Law, with approximately 400 students, offers both the Juris Doctor and Master of Laws degrees. Law students may choose from over 120 courses, as well as a variety of clinical programs which provide experience with real clients in real-world situations. The School of Law's intensive instructional program is designed to equip students with a legal education in the fullest sense; it provides not only the technical tools needed for the practice of law, but a deep understanding of how law operates in our society and a sensitivity to the ethical imperatives of the profession.
