Applying to Northwestern Law

The Office of Admissions and many of our colleagues across the Law School community continue to work from home, consistent with guidance from local and state public health officials.  And while our physical office is closed and we are unable to take your phone call, we are at the ready to assist our prospective applicants.  The best way to reach us is via our main email account:  We will respond to your inquiry as soon as possible.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.

You will find more information about the Northwestern Law application process based upon the degree program you wish to pursue.  Furthermore, application checklists are available for each of our degree programs.  We strongly encourage all applicants to submit their application materials electronically.
