Does one generally need to look around May or June to find good opportunities or should one be looking immediately to try and 'get in line' like Jefferson Ridge and the Jeffersonian?
It depends on where you're looking. In some places (around the main campus, or "grounds" as UVA says) you have to sign leases approximately.. last November, lol. Farther away housing is more typical and I think you'd be fine in May and June. I don't know about around the law school, don't know anything about houses there.
How "far away" are we talking? Of course it depends on your individual situation, but I'm assuming most law students don't need a car, right?
Within walking distance to the main grounds, most houses will already be leased (probably already are). The law school isn't quite main grounds, so it's possible there will still be houses available farther out on that side that are still walkable to the law school (not sure, I only went to UVA undergrad- but most houses between the law school and the main campus will already be leased, I would imagine).
The issue of cars has been discussed in this thread, I think. Short version: you don't need a car, but it is definitely
convenient to have one.
