Class Visits

This fall, we are excited to mark a return to our traditional, in-person class observation opportunities. Please view the Class Observation Calendar for additional information. Registration is required. 

Class observations are unavailable during the reading and exam periods (December 2-15, 2022). Class observations will resume mid-January 2023. 

Student Guided Tours for JD Applicants 

Beginning mid-September, we are excited to once again offer our traditional, in-person tours on Fridays throughout the semester. These hour-long tours will be led by current Northwestern Law JD students, enabling you to learn about life at the Law School from those who were in your shoes just a few years ago. Throughout the tour, you will have the opportunity to ask questions of these student leaders.  

Registration is required.  After you submit the brief registration form linked to the date you plan to participate in a student guided tour, you will receive detailed confirmation materials.  Please save this information as you plan for your visit. We cannot wait to welcome you to our beautiful campus here in the heart of Chicago!

Please visit our Student Guided Tour webpage to view and register for available tour dates. 

Student guided tours are unavailable during the reading and exam periods (December 2-15, 2022). Student guided tours will resume mid-January 2023. Self guided tour phamplets are available within the Office of Admission and Financial Aid.
