“I am delighted that Professor Hellwig has agreed to accept this appointment and have the utmost confidence in his ability to lead the law school during this critical time,” Ruscio said. “I look forward to working with Professor Hellwig and the entire law school community to ensure that the School of Law remains a defining feature of Washington and Lee.”

University Provost, Daniel A. Wubah, said, “Professor Hellwig has a clear understanding of our law school’s mission, character and goals. Both he and Dean Demleitner will have the full support of the faculty and administration during the transition.”

Hellwig earned his law degree from Wake Forest University. He has practiced with Bell, Davis & Pitt, P.A. in North Carolina and earned his LL.M. in taxation from New York University School of Law.

“W&L School of Law is a truly remarkable place. We have a small, collegial student body that regularly interacts with a faculty comprised of engaged scholars and committed teachers,” Hellwig said. “The place has a feel that is both comforting and invigorating. It is a joy to be a part of this intellectual community, and it will be a privilege to lead the school. I look forward to working with Dean Demleitner in the months ahead so that the school may continue to build on her many accomplishments.”
