Purpose and Instruction:
The educational program of the law school is designed to equip its graduates with legally trained minds, while instilling a sense of professional responsibility. The case method of instruction is used in many courses. The beginning student is trained in the analysis and solution of legal problems by the application of logical reasoning. Attention is given to the principles of the early common law, state and federal decisions and statutes, and to such rules of law as are peculiar to Virginia. Substantive courses, dealing with the content of the law, are generally taught by full-time professors. Many courses dealing with the principles governing actual practice before judicial and administrative tribunals are instructed by adjunct professors who are practicing attorneys and judges, as well as leading members of the state bar and bench. Students are trained in the historical principles of law, but their attention also is directed to the most recent developments in the profession. An excellent faculty offers a curriculum that is well balanced in theoretical and practical courses and carefully selected to prepare the graduate for the successful practice of law.
