In order to make your visit to Northwestern as informative as possible, we invite you to take a tour of our school and visit one of our first-year or upper-level classes. You do not need to sign-up for either of these activities.
Tours are only available while fall and spring classes are in session. While classes are not in session, self-guided tours are available.
Student-led tours are given every day at noon with the exception of Wednesdays, while classes are in session. View the Academic Calendar to see when classes are in session.
Prospective students may sit in on almost any class available at the Law School. Classes are in session everyday on a variety of topics. Please consult the class schedule* to see what will be available the day of your visit.
*The following classes are NOT available for viewing: Accounting for Decision Makers; Advanced Electronic Legal Research; Advanced Legal Communication; Clinic; Communication and Legal Reasoning; Cross-Cultural Negotiation; Finance; Legal Analysis; Mathematical Methods for Management Decisions; Mergers and Acquisitions; Negotiation; Practicum; Trial Advocacy; Trial Team.
There may be last minute room changes or class cancellations on the day of your visit, so please stop by the Office of Admissions before attending any class to check locations and schedules.
As a courtesy, when you visit a class, we ask that you inform the professor beforehand that you are a visitor so you do not get called on by mistake.
