W. Taylor Reveley III has served as the interim president of the College of William and Mary since February 12, 2008, at the resignation of president Gene R. Nichol. Previously, he was the dean of William and Mary Law School for almost a decade, starting in August 1998. He is the John Stewart Bryan Professor of Jurisprudence.

Reveley received his A.B. from Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs in 1965. Afterward, he attended law school at the University of Virginia, receiving his J.D. in 1968, and clerked for Justice William J. Brennan, Jr. in 1969. He has extensively studied and written about the constitutional division of the war powers between the President and Congress. Reveley is the author of War Powers of the President and Congress: Who Holds the Arrows and Olive Branch? (University of Virginia Press, 1981).

Before joining William and Mary, Reveley practiced law for many years at Hunton & Williams, specializing in energy matters, especially those involving commercial nuclear power. He was the managing partner of the firm for nine years. Reveley has also spent a significant amount of time on non-profit organizations, serving on many education and cultural boards, including those of Princeton University (where he is a trustee emeritus), Union Theological Seminary in Virginia, St. Christopher's School, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, JSTOR, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, the Virginia Historical Society, the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities, the Richmond Symphony, and the Presbyterian Church (USA) Foundation.
