During the summer we offer student-led tours on Mondays and Fridays at 1pm from June 10- August 9. The law school will be closed on Thursday, July 4 in observance of Independence Day.
TO RSVP: You must register in advance by contacting our Admissions Reception Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-274-4101. Include your full name, LSAC ID (if available), mailing address, email address, contact number and date you wish to visit. You will receive a confirmation email with logistics prior to your visit.
If you will be in the Washington, DC area during a time when we do not offer a student-led tour, you are welcome to take a Self-Guided Tour. Printed copies are available at the Security Desk in the lobby or in the Office of Admissions in Suite 507.
To be fair to all applicants, we do not offer evaluative interviews. Our Committee on Admissions expects candidates to detail their achievements, challenges, and academic abilities in their application materials.
