  • Washington - George Washington University Law School
    2000 H Street, NW, Washington 20052, Phone: (202) 994-6261

    The Law School enrolled its first class in 1865, and, two years later, 60 students received the degree of bachelor of laws. We can be certain that those students had a very different experience than this year's entering class will have. From the vastly expanded curriculum and faculty to ethnic and gender diversity to smart classrooms, it might seem that this is an entirely different law school.
