Washington College of Law

Washington College of Law
Academic Building
4801 MASSACHUSETTS AVENUE NW 20016
The Washington College of Law was founded more than 100 years ago by two pioneering women. From its founding until 1898 the law school was located in downtown, Washington, D.C., until it relocated to AU’s main campus in the mid 1960s. In 1996, WCL moved to its current location less than a mile from the AU campus at 4801 Massachusetts Avenue. Occupying nearly 180,000 square feet, WCL’s six-story facility includes the Pence Law Library which houses several unique collections—including European Union documents, the Goodman Rare Book Collection, and the Baxter Collection in International Law—a newly refurbished moot court room, and technology enhanced classrooms.
