The West Virginia University College of Law is the professional school for the study of law at West Virginia University in Morgantown, West Virginia. The law school was established in 1878 as the first professional school in the state of West Virginia. It remains the only law school in the state.

The West Virginia Law Review is the fourth oldest law school journal in the nation having been founded in 1894.

The law school has been a member of the Association of American Law Schools since 1914 and was given full-accreditation by the American Bar Association in 1923. The law school has also maintained a chapter of the prestigious Order of the Coif since 1925.
