Our Students

If Ellen Mussey and Emma Gillett visited the campus today, they would be amazed at how WCL has changed. They would discover:

  • a school where women comprise 60 percent of each class.
  • among top law schools, WCL ranks ninth in racial diversity.
  • the class entering in 2003 included a minority enrollment of 33 percent.
  • our international population has grown to 22 foreign countries represented in the JD class of 2005 and over 60 countries represented in our LLM program.
Today, our students meet scholars, fellows and practitioners who come here from around the world to study, conduct research and participate in conferences and symposia.

The following includes an interesting look into our past student affairs!
