Dear AUWCL Community,
I wanted to take this opportunity to wish you all a great start to the semester as well as update you on the Tenley Campus construction. This new year will be an exciting one for our community. We will have many highlights to share with you about the construction of our new home.

Construction is moving along on the Tenley Campus!
Three existing buildings on the campus–Constitutional, Federal, and Congressional Halls—were demolished in preparation for new structures on the site. If you get a glimpse of the grounds via the 24 hour live construction camera, you will see mounds of sand, rock, and debris. These materials have been salvaged from the rubble of Federal and Congressional Halls, and are being repurposed for the construction staging areas. Two cornerstones from the Federal and Congressional Hall buildings that were placed in 1955 as part of the Immaculata School have also been salvaged and remain on-site.
Washington College of Law was founded in 1896 by two pioneering women who felt they, and all women, should have the same access to legal education as men. Over the last 117 years, Washington College of Law has grown and thrived – in 11 different homes – from G Street downtown, to the Myers Building on AU’s main campus, to our current facility in Spring Valley. The Tenley Campus, will be the first time we have resided in a law center designed to grow and adapt to anything the future holds.
