Richmond Law at 150

The University of Richmond School of Law celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2020. We invite you to explore these pages to learn more.

For 150 years, we’ve been doing something right at the University of Richmond School of Law.

We prepare our students with the core knowledge every lawyer needs, while instilling an innovative mindset. It’s that unique combination that creates lawyers who make a difference in their communities and in the world. We’re ready to take on the next 150 years with an eye toward creative thinking — plus that same commitment to professional excellence that’s fueled us for the past 150 years.

Join University of Richmond President Ronald A. Crutcher, Richmond Law Dean Wendy Perdue, faculty, alumni, and students in this video celebration of 150 years.
