Director - Pre-Law Program - Christopher Newport University

Pre-Law Program


Professor Linda S. Ficht

In 2022 William C. Mims took senior status as a justice on the Supreme Court of Virginia and came to Christopher Newport, where he also teaches courses about the Constitution. He is a former attorney general of Virginia and member of the General Assembly. He is only the second Virginian in history to serve Virginia's top three legal positions – helping to make the law, enforce the law and interpret the law. He previously has taught at two Virginia law schools. He is deeply committed to teaching and mentoring undergraduates who may want to become legal professionals.

"Working with students as they deepen their understanding and their love of the law, our Constitution and our justice system is enormously satisfying, more so because Christopher Newport is perfectly positioned to help those students thrive in law school and in the legal profession."
