Visit and Tour

Visit and Tour

We continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and its potential impact on the health and safety of the Law School community. In turn, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our traditional Class Visit and Tour opportunities this semester. 

For the foreseeable future, the Office of Admissions and many of our Northwestern Law colleagues will continue to work from home. And while our physical office is closed and we are not able to take your phone call, we are at the ready to assist our prospective applicants.  Please contact us via our main email account:  admissions@law.northwestern.edu. We'll respond to your inquiry as soon as possible.  


In the absence of a student-led tour, we encourage you to view the following videos to gain a sense of the beauty of Northwestern Law's three buildings, the spirit of our people, and the city we call home:

Virtual Information Sessions, Panels, and Workshops for JD Applicants

Join us for one (or more!) of our fall 2020 virtual events. We've designed these sessions to introduce you to Northwestern Law's robust curriculum, experiential learning opportunities, and career outcomes for our graduates. We are also presenting online workshops on the JD application process as well as interactive sessions with members of the Law School community. 

Visit this page periodically to see the dates and times for the growing roster of opportunities to learn more about Northwestern Law. We also encourage you to view our Virtual Events page for details on the virtual forums, law fairs, and graduate and professional fairs we will attend this fall. Please note that registration is required for most all of our events.
