George Mason University - Antonin Scalia Law School
George Mason University - Antonin Scalia Law School was authorized by the Virginia General Assembly in March 1979 and was founded on July 1, 1979. The American Bar Association provisionally approved the school in the fall of 1980 and granted full approval in 1986. Located just steps away from the nation’s capital, George Mason University School of Law offers students unmatched professional, educational, and cultural opportunities in Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia. Proximity to the White House, Capitol Hill, and the U.S. Supreme Court—as well as countless government agencies, think-tanks, non-profits, and law firms—gives students unparalleled access to the top legal minds, organizations, and job opportunities that the nation has to offer. Our faculty is culled from these very institutions, and many of our graduates go on to work at the highest level in those organizations.
