Every aspect of the Wake Forest Law experience is designed for students. Our Law Commons is a shared space perfect for studying, catching up with classmates, meeting with faculty, or having breakfast or lunch at the Legal Grounds Cafe.

Outfitted with the latest multimedia technology, our classrooms are modern, but built for our small JD/LLM classes. With a 10:1 student/faculty ratio, you’ll experience a personalized, engaging environment that is perfect for legal study.

Further your studies in the Wake Forest Law Library where you can make yourself at home in a quiet study carrel, get research assistance from a professional reference librarian, or meet with the IT department to enhance your final presentation.

There's more than one way to learn. Wake Forest Law actively embraces experiential learning while you are a law student.

Practice what you learn in any of our legal clinics, various externship programs, and the Pro Bono Project.

Wake Forest Law is home to North Carolina's newest Business Court. Equipped with the latest technology, it is virtually paperless and is often distinguished as the courtroom of the future.

This is a working court and presiding Judge Michael Robinson encourages students to sit in on hearings to watch proceedings.

Wake Forest Law sits on the main Wake Forest University campus in Winston-Salem, NC.

Just a short walk from the Law School is Hearn Plaza, or as many students call it, “the Quad.” As the hub of campus, you’ll find a variety of dining options, the bookstore, and outdoor spaces and games.

The Z. Smith Reynolds Library is not just a great place to study, it’s also home to the University’s Writing Center, where you can get help starting or revising your law school papers.

Wake Forest University has culture. You can attend events like the Secrest Artist Series that brings world class musicians and groups to campus, student dance recitals and theatre performances, and our very own Museum of Anthropology.

As a law student you have access to all campus wellbeing services, recreation, and sport-related entertainment, including NCAA Division I athletics. Wake Forest is the smallest university to have all Division I athletic teams, including soccer, basketball, and American football. There are also intramural opportunities for graduate students.

Your wellbeing is important to us! Law students have full access to a state of the art recreation center. With a wide variety of exercise equipment, free weights, and group fitness classes, everyone can find an activity they enjoy here.

For such a small school, we have a lot of traditions. You’ll really get to feel the excitement of being a part of the Wake Forest family.

Wake Forest's hometown of Winston-Salem is perfectly situated in North Carolina — just 2 hours to the mountains of Asheville and 4 hours to the beaches of Wilmington.

Just a five-minute drive from campus, Wake Forest Law students enjoy all that downtown Winston-Salem has to offer. Known as North Carolina's "City of Arts and Innovation," Winston is home to a variety of restaurants, unique art galleries, and the area's leading technology and research park, Wake Forest Innovation Quarter.
