Welcome, Incoming Students!

Congratulations on your admission to Northwestern Pritzker School of Law!

We are looking forward to welcoming you into our NLaw community at Orientation soon.

Orientation will begin on Monday, August 22 and continue through Thursday, August 25. Friday, August 26, is International Student Orientation Day and is intended as a preparation day for domestic students before your first day of class on Monday, August 29. Orientation is mandatory for all incoming 1Ls and will occur on campus in Chicago. Please note, there will be additional optional programming the weekends before and after orientation. We will be making updates and adding additional information in the next few weeks. Please bookmark this site and be sure to check back with us.

Orientation Tentative Schedule: This schedule is tentative and subject to minor revisions. Please see your specific program for your complete orientation schedule and details when they become available.

Public Service Event

At Northwestern Pritzker School of Law, we believe that it is important not only to cultivate a sense of community here at the law school but also to be active members in the greater community of Chicago. The Public Interest Center and Student Effort to Rejuvenate Volunteering (SERV), a student service organization on campus, believe that we can build a stronger community through public service, and they are planning many exciting volunteer opportunities to start off your orientation to Northwestern and the City of Chicago.

On Saturday, August 27th, you have the option of volunteering for a morning or afternoon services project. There is also one event that will take place on Sunday, August 28th, for those who are unable to volunteer on Saturday. To participate, please complete this Survey: Day of Service Volunteer Sites
