Next Steps

Schedule a Visit

We have scheduled a number of special visit opportunities for admitted students during the spring, and we hope that you will be able to join us for one of these programs. We also encourage you to stop by the law school at any time to walk through the building on your own and chat informally with students. If you would like to schedule a guided tour or visit a first-year class, you can use our online visit registration forms or call our office.
