Applying to Northwestern Law

As of May 11, 2020, the Office of Admissions and our colleagues across the Law School community continue to shelter in place for the foreseeable future, consistent with local and state public health policies.  And while our physical office is closed and we are unable to take your phone call, we continue to work remotely.  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 on the degree program you wish to pursue. Application checklists may be found for each of our degree programs as well. We strongly encourage all applicants to submit their application materials electronically.
