Welcome Message from Dean Nelson  

Dean Camille Nelson
 

It is my honor and privilege to welcome you to American University Washington College of Law. We are a community of accomplished faculty, engaged administrators, exceptional students, and extraordinary alumni leaders who continue our century-long tradition of excellence in legal education, skills-based teaching, and relevant, high-impact scholarship.

The spirit of our tradition lies in the hearts and minds of our community members, who are dedicated to the professional advancement and well-being of our students and alumni, and who strive to “Champion What Matters,” locally, nationally, and internationally.

Founded by pioneering women in the late 1800s, a time when few women had the opportunity to attend professional schools, we have continued to build upon this tradition of inclusive excellence, which now features top programs in clinical legal education, international law, trial advocacy, intellectual property, law and government, and much more. Washington College of Law continues to offer an exemplary professional education. We are now located on our 8 1/2 acre legal campus on the Red Line in Washington, D.C.

This new Tenley Campus, an unparalleled complement to the look and feel of 21st century legal and professional training, maximizes our potential, expands opportunities for our community, most importantly our students, and solidifies and enhances our already influential standing in legal education. Combined with our excellent community, our stunning new space contributes to making Washington College of Law a vibrant intellectual hub.

In no small part, this is due to our community of caring leaders who utilize their diverse experience and vision in service of the professional aspirations of our students. We take great pride in having exceptionally dedicated faculty whose experience, impact, and contributions touch every area of the law.

So, too, our nearly 20,000 alumni have made extraordinary achievements in all areas of private law, business, and consulting, as well as government service, public interest, academia, and humanitarian work around the world.

As Dean of American University Washington College of Law, I am committed to the advancement of our tradition of excellence. It is my pleasure to invite you to our campus so that you can experience for yourself our exceptional community.

Sincerely,

Camille A. Nelson,
Dean and Professor of Law
