Have Viewbooks, Will Travel: William & Mary Law School On the Road

It’s FINALLY that time of year – travel season! In just two short weeks, members of the Admission Office will say goodbye to Williamsburg and set off across the country to meet with some of our favorite people – prospective students! It’s one of our favorite times of year and we can’t wait to meet you.

We do our best to be the face of William & Mary all the time, but when we are unable to be at a college or university in person, we have fantastic alumni around the country who help us. We’ll be sad to miss you, but you get the added benefit of hearing first hand experiences of what life is like as a W&M Law student!
