Visit and Tour
Visiting the Northwestern Law campus may be the most important thing you can do to help you decide whether our school is right for you. In order to make your visit to Northwestern Law as informative as possible, we invite you to view our virtual tour online, or visit campus to take a tour of our buildings and visit one of our first-year classes.
Student-guided tours are offered on Mondays and Fridays at 12:00 PM during the fall and spring semesters.
Student-guided tours start from the Admissions Office, Rubloff 130.
On days when guided tours are unavailable, self-guided tour pamphlets are available in the Admissions Office.

Prospective JD and LLM students may visit many classes available at the Law School during the fall and spring semesters.
We encourage students to visit traditional 1L courses to get the best sense of what a first year law school class may be like. However, we offer a wide variety of classes each semester. You can find a list of classes our Student Admissions Committee has recommended for visitation on our blog.
As a courtesy, we ask that you arrive on time and do not leave early. If you cannot attend for the entire class session, you should not visit the class.
Upon arrival, please inform the professor that you are a prospective student by introducing yourself before the class begins.

- December 2-18: Reading week and final exams
