WildCARD Services for Northwestern Law students

The WildCARD is your multifunctional all-purpose campus ID card that gives you access to parking, shuttles, merchant discounts, and more.

Notebook Purchase Program

All incoming AJD students are required to have a computer that meets or exceeds the University's recommended guidelines.

To make the purchase of a notebook laptop easier and more affordable, Northwestern Law sponsors a program through which students can purchase at a discount notebooks that meet the school's standards and have the peripherals needed to connect to the Law School and University networks.

NLaw Directory Photos, Business Casual Attire - Monday, May 19th
Directory, WildCard, and UPass photos will be taken when you check in. The Northwestern Law online Directory is a valuable and frequently used reference tool for students, faculty, and staff. We also print and share copies of the Directory Photos with employers during on-campus-interviewing programs. Please remember to dress in business casual attire FROM THE WAIST UP so that your resulting Directory Photo will be appropriate to hand out to employers. For all other events, the recommended attire is dress casual.
