Beyond the Classroom

Yogi in the Courtroom

We recognize that like the practice of law, the study of law will require that you find activities outside the classroom that enrich your life. Like lawyers, you will find reward in using your newfound skills to serve the public by sitting on local boards and participating in our Miller Center Pro Bono Matching Program. Our student organizations not only initiate projects that benefit the community, but they also organize and sponsor diverse social events. We place equal emphasis on sharp legal mind and healthy body by offering mindfulness and yoga sessions, intramural sports, and plenty of outdoor recreational and cultural activities that support your well-being.
