Vault's Rating 4 out of 5


  • St. Louis location provides an urban lifestyle at an affordable price
  • Clinic program provides students with opportunities outside of the St. Louis area
  • Students appear to easily find jobs following graduation
  • Study abroad opportunities


  • Extremely selective admissions process
  • No part-time program, meaning students cannot work full-time to defray the cost of law school
  • Few students choose to clerk following graduation
  • High tuition without scholarships

The Bottom Line

  • Combining ample scholarship and loan re-payment opportunities with a low-cost of living, Washington School of Law provides a top-tier education to students for less than other top-tier schools. Although many students choose to stay in Missouri, upon graduation, students find employment in many large metropolitan areas in careers ranging from big law to public service.
