Meet the Student Bloggers!

It’s that time again: students are back on campus, the academic year is officially in full swing, and you want to hear from our students! The Admissions Office is lucky to have a number of student bloggers who have volunteered to share their experiences while at William & Mary Law School. You can expect to hear more about living in Williamsburg, internships and externships, how to handle cold calls, and the best (and worst) of every day life in law school.
