History

Wake Forest University was founded in 1834 outside the state capital of Raleigh, North Carolina. In 1941, the medical school moved to Winston-Salem, and the rest of the College followed in 1956. The School of Law was established in 1894, and in 1993 moved into its current facility, the Worrell Professional Center.
