A High Quality Learning Experience. Anytime. Anywhere.

Welcome to the Office of Online Learning at American University Washington College of Law. Since the launch of our first online courses nearly 10 years ago, our goal has been to increase access to our high quality course offerings and programs, while leveraging cutting edge learning science and technology. The Office of Online Learning is bringing AUWCL to a worldwide audience, anytime, anywhere.

Our online courses and programs typically combine highly produced, self-paced content that can be accessed 24/7 from anywhere with an Internet connection, with live synchronous class sessions that allow students to build relationships with and learn in real time from our world-class faculty.
