The University of Virginia School of Law was founded in Charlottesville in 1819 by Thomas Jefferson as one of the original subjects taught at his "academical village," the University of Virginia. The Law School maintains an enrollment of approximately 1,100 students in its initial degree program. The school's reputation as one of the most prestigious law schools in the nation is reflected by its perennial appearance among the "top ten" in the U.S. News & World Report rankings, where it is currently ranked 10th. The Law School receives no funding from public coffers except for in-state student tuition subsidies. Thus, the Law School depends upon the largesse of private donors, its substantial endowment and student tuition payments. In 1995-1997, the Law School used entirely donated funds to renovate and expand its buildings on the University's North Grounds to include the former facilities of the Darden Graduate School of Business Administration which built a new campus several hundred yards away. The Law School's 51% alumni giving rate is among the highest of the nation's law schools.
