Welcome to the Washington College of Law, about a half-mile north of American University's main campus, in Washington, D.C.'s Spring Valley neighborhood. The law school moved into its present location in January, 1996. The John Sherman Myers & Alvina Reckman Myers Law Center is a six-story facility that houses classrooms, courtrooms and the Pence Law Library- all equipped with modern technology. Faculty and administrative offices are incorporated on most floors to allow constant interaction between faculty, students and staff. The building design fosters more informal exchanges between students and faculty with its open meeting spaces and lounge areas on each level.
WCL also has offices at 4910 Massachusetts Avenue and 4301 50th St., one block from the law center building. These sites house our program offices including: Academy on Human Rights and Humanitarian Law; Center for Human Rights and Humanitarian Law; War Crimes Research Office; International Commercial Arbitration Program; Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property; Woman and the Law Program and others.
This virtual tour will give you an idea of what it's like to attend the Washington College of Law. We encourage you to come and visit us in person as you will find there are few other prestigious law schools so comfortable and friendly.
Located on tree-lined Massachusetts Avenue in the District, WCL is minutes from downtown D.C. yet close to parks, trails, neighborhood restaurants, shopping, and some of the nicest residential neighborhoods in the Washington, D.C. area. American University's main campus and the Washington College of Law are north of Embassy Row and the Washington National Cathedral. The law school is half a mile south of the D.C. border with Bethesda, MD and about 3.5 miles to the Chain Bridge crossing into Arlington, VA.
