Visiting Northwestern Pritzker School of Law is an excellent way to determine if our school is the right fit for you.  However, we understand that not all prospective students have the opportunity to visit our community, which is why we have created a virtual tour of the Law School.  If you are interested in experiencing more after viewing the virtual tour, we encourage you to visit Northwestern Law to tour the campus and to sit in on one of our first year (1L) classes.

Student-guided tours and self-guided tours

  • Student-guided tours are offered on Mondays and Fridays at 12:00 PM during the fall and spring semesters. Student-guided tours for the Spring 2018 semester will be available Monday, January 22 through Monday, April 16.  During Spring Break (March 24 through April 1) and the week thereafter (April 2 through April 8), we will suspend student-guided tours.  Click here to view the calendar for available tours.  
  • Student-guided tours depart from the Admissions Office, Rubloff 130.
  • If you are not able to visit the Law School for a student-guided tour, you are welcome to conduct a self-guided tour.  Pamphlets detailing the self-guided tour are available in the Admissions Office during regular business hours.

Class Visits

Prospective JD and LLM students are welcome to visit classes available at the Law School during the fall and spring semesters only.  Class visits for the Spring 2018 semester will be available Tuesday, January 16th through Friday, March 16th.  During Spring Break (March 24 through April 1) and the week thereafter (April 2 through April 8), we will suspend class visits. 

  • We recommend that prospective students visit traditional 1L courses to witness the dialogue between faculty and current Northwestern Law students.  The current semester class schedule may be viewed here
  • As a courtesy, we ask that you arrive at least 10 to 15 minutes early prior to the start of your class visitation, do not leave early, and silence any electronic devices while in the classroom.  If you cannot attend for the entire class session, please do not visit the class.
  • Upon arrival, please inform the professor that you are a prospective student by introducing yourself before the class begins.
  • Northwestern Law will not be able to offer class visitations during several periods, including our reading week and final exam period, winter break, spring break, and summer break.  If your proposed visit falls outside of the Law School's availability, we encourage you to contact the Admissions Office to discuss a possible meeting with one of our directors.
