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, in-person Class Visit and Tour opportunities this semester. That said, we are excited to offer virtual student-led tours, a set of striking video tours, and a host of virtual admission programs.

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.  


Student-Led Virtual Tours

Our experienced and enthusiastic student guides will provide a narrated tour of the three buildings that comprise the Northwestern Law campus. These student leaders will not simply point out classrooms, the library, and meeting areas; they will weave relevant and interesting information into their narration. Following the tour, our guides will field your questions and share their timely perspectives. We are confident you will learn a great deal about life as a JD student at Northwestern Law during one of these hour-long sessions.


From mid-November 2020 to late January 2021, our Student-Led Virtual Tour program will be on a brief hiatus. Traditionally, we pause our student-led tours at this point in the academic year so our current students may prepare for the reading period as well as their final examinations. Check this page in January 2021 for a schedule of newly posted Student-Led Virtual Tours and Question & Answer sessions!


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 our 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 are attending this fall. Please note that registration is required for many of our events.


Update as of December 16, 2020:  Our fall semester events have concluded; check back for future programming!
