West Virginia University College of Law is the only law school in the Mountain State and that means its students benefit from a very strong relationship with the bench and bar.  

“We have an especially close relationship with the legal community in the region," said John Taylor, professor of law and interim dean. "This gives our students exceptional opportunities in hands-on learning and networking in the profession.”

The Morgantown school offers nine clinical law experiences, including U.S. Supreme Court, immigration, family and veterans advocacy, innocence project, and land use and sustainability. Students can also take advantage of a number of externship and moot court opportunities.

WVU Law excels when it comes to public interest law, environmental law, and practical training—earning top marks from preLaw Magazine. The school's Center for Energy and Sustainable Development aims to play a prominent role in shaping environmental and energy policies by offering a national energy law moot court competition, energy law symposia, and legal expertise. The Center for Law and Public Service helps place students in externships while managing opportunities in public interest law and community service.
