Visiting Students

Visiting Students

Third year students currently enrolled at an Association of American Law Schools member school may be admitted to Northwestern Law as visiting students for a single term or an academic year. The application deadline for entry in the Fall semester is August 1; the deadline for entry in the Spring semester is December 1. Visiting students are not considered candidates for degrees from Northwestern Law.

Visiting Student Guidelines

  • Visiting students are eligible to use resources in from the Career Strategy Center. Students may attend workshops and presentations and make use of the career library and the website.

  • Visiting students are not eligible to participate in Northwestern Law’s On-Campus Interview (OCI) program. We encourage visiting students to make use of their law school’s formal recruitment programs and career office for supplemental resources.

  • Visiting students are encouraged to get involved in student life at Northwestern Law and are eligible to join any student organizations. However, visiting students cannot participate on our law journals or moot court.

  • Visiting students are the final group of students to register for classes each semester, so these students may not be able to register for their first-choice classes.
