Washington, DC, has been called the most livable city on the East Coast. With the National Mall and the vast Rock Creek Park near campus, students may take advantage of abundant green space for running, biking, strolling, or sports such as softball and volleyball.  Museums -- mostly free! -- pepper the city, and all are accessible by foot or Metro from the Law School. The city is busy and energetic, but also easy to get around and replete with opportunities for socializing and relaxation.
