Washington Institute for Graduate Studies was founded in 1976 under the direction of Dr. Gary James Joslin, Attorney at Law. The school was named after the noble father of our country, George Washington, who, under inspiration, promoted truth which resulted in the founding of this great country. Inspired by that history, Dr. Joslin desired to promote truth in the field of law, particularly tax law which is often so complex that the average person cannot comprehend it. Thus the school was established as an institution that would help clarify and simplify the principles of taxation for the average law professional.
Dr. Joslin also understood the demands and pressures of busy professionals in today’s fast-paced society as well as the high cost and inaccessibility of education. Consequently the program was designed to be a convenient, low-cost, and flexible “distance learning” educational program. Students can pursue their legal education while maintaining their business or practice, and without wasted time and money, or the inconvenience of moving to another locale. They can also satisfy their continuing education requirements (CLE credits and CPE credits) while earning a degree.
Since its establishment over thirty years ago, Washington Institute for Graduate Studies is still achieving the goals and vision of its founder. His motto is the school’s motto: “Truth by whomsoever pronounced is from God.”
