-Too much of a focus on Humantiarian law-these types of jobs are scant and not readily available not non T-14 law school students.
-Did not have the best Career Counseling program-more or less "try and network" advice.Comments
If you are looking for a D.C. based law school where you can learn from great professors, WCL is a great choice. Also, if you lean liberal, you will feel comfortable here.Would You Recommend

LL.M. in Law and Government students do not have as many opportunities to take advantage of the organizations in the school and are limited in the journals or groups they can be a part of.Comments
It is in NW DC. The school recently was upgraded to new facilities and has state of the art resources now.Would You Recommend
WCL has some amazing professors who not only enjoy teaching, but are great teachers too. And the professors have excellent relationships with nonprofits and government agencies for those interested in internships in those areas.Downers
WCL admits a ton of students to each class, which makes the school feel less prestigious.Comments
Overall, you can receive an excellent education at WCL, if you are selective about which classes to take.Would You Recommend
Many great professors. Fantastic AU Law Review experience. Friendly and less competitive environment.Downers
Administration cares little about JD students' job placement. The school has many great programs, but they are less known because too much emphasis is placed on international law (especially human rights).Comments
WCL is located in a nice neighborhood in DC with a new campus to be opened soon, which provides great opportunities for networking.Would You Recommend
Well regarded program
Good exit opportunities
Rankings are dropping
