article description
General Description:The Law School was established as a department of Richmond College in 1870. In 1890 the family of the late T. C. Williams, who had been a devoted and valued Trustee, donated $25,000 as the nucleus of an endowment for the Law School. In recognition of this gift, the name of the School was changed to the T. C. Williams School of Law. At various times the School has received further generous gifts from members of the family of Mr. Williams. A substantial gift came through a bequest from Mr. T. C. Williams, Jr. who, like his father, was long a Trustee of Richmond College, and for twenty years was the efficient Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Board. The largest of these gifts was received by bequest from Mr. A. D. Williams, another son of Mr. T. C. Williams.The T. C. Williams School of Law is an integral part of the University of Richmond. The University Senate, on which sit representatives of all the faculties, provides for intercollegiate cooperation. Ultimate authority is vested in the Board of Trustees and the President of the University. The degrees in law are conferred by the corporation of the University of Richmond. Although possessing a proud tradition, the Law School continues to keep pace with the changing methods of legal education in order to prepare its graduates for the modern practice of law.
