Give Today for a Brighter Future

Washington College of Law is the first law school in the world founded by women; the first to have a woman dean; and the first to graduate an all-female law school class. No law school is better positioned than the Washington College of Law to take on an unprecedented new future.

Seated at the heart of our nation’s capital, our students are provided with foundations in core legal principals taught by world renowned faculty, and an education complimented by incredible experiential learning opportunities through nationally ranked programs like Clinic and Trial Advocacy. Our students are known for graduating and being ready for practice. They are nimble. They are astute at navigating a variety of challenges. They have the practical knowledge and experience to succeed.

With your Support we will Continue to Rise up

Thanks to our dynamic leaders, WCL has been working to not only stay competitive with, but surpass our peers. In the past five years alone, WCL has risen 10 places in the U.S. News & World Report rankings and now has 3 programs ranked in the top 5 nationally (Clinical Legal Education #2, International Law #4, Trial Advocacy #4). The scholarly excellence of our students is supported by the recently established Office of Academic Excellence, which has overseen jumps in bar passage rates and the resultant employment of our students.

But now we turn to you, our alumni, friends and family to take us further. In order to continue to rise in our pursuit of excellence, we need additional support for student scholarship to attract and retain the best and brightest students; support for our faculty so that they can continue their pursuits in research and innovation. Your support will also help us ensure a positive student experience that includes resources for their academic goals and legal futures.

Annual giving serves as the foundation of the American University Washington College of Law's philanthropic support. Annual gifts are made by AUWCL's own alumni, students, faculty, and staff in addition to longtime supporters, businesses, and foundations, and we could not be where we are today without their loyal generosity.
