The Tenley Advantage: Metro Access!

The Tenley Campus is located at the intersection of Wisconsin and Nebraska Avenues, one short block from the AU-Tenleytown Metro Station. This location will give the legal community, business leaders, government officials, and alumni better access to the law school while providing students with a direct connection to the heart of Washington, D.C. No shuttle necessary!

The proximity to the metro will make it even easier for students participating in AUWCL’s Supervised Externship Program in Washington, D.C., to get to and from their externship locations and the law school.  Between 125 and 150 students gain practical experiences through externships in each of the fall and spring semesters, while also attending class. They extern with government agencies, non-profit organizations, international organizations, and more.

The location will also benefit students working in the Clinical Program as well as the clients being served by student attorneys in one of the 10 Clinics. Students often meet with clients at the law school, especially through the Immigrant Justice and Janet R. Spragens Federal Tax Clinics, just two examples of our clinics that help underserved populations in the DC Metro area.
