The law school is located on its own 22-acre campus in the northwest part of the city approximately five miles from the main campus. Houston Hall, named for the famous civil rights lawyer and strategist Charles Hamilton Houston, is the main academic and administrative building. Notre Dame Hall houses the Career Services Office, the Clinical Law Center, and the offices for major student organizations, including the Howard Law Journal, the national and international moot court teams, the Student Bar Association, and a student newspaper titled The New Barrister. Holy Cross Hall houses the Office of Admissions, Office of Recording, Office of Financial Aid, several seminar rooms and smaller classrooms, and the law school’s bookstore.
The law school’s location in the nation’s capitol provides an excellent environment for students to pursue the study of law. Our location in Washington provides convenient access to the extensive DC court system and many of the city’s cultural and historical institutions. Our campus is easily accessible by public transportation and major thoroughfares. It is located approximately two blocks from the Van Ness Metro (subway) Station and is conveniently served by several metropolitan bus routes.
