Campus & Virtual Visits

NOTE: Our JD Admissions staff are working mostly remotely due to current campus operations under COVID-19 restrictions.

How to visit us

Summer Tour Schedule
(June 7 - August 6, 2021)

During the summer, JD Admissions staff will lead small group tours of our law campus. Some of the tours will be specifically for incoming students and other tours will be specifically for prospective students, waiting list candidates or other current applicants. The Wednesday evening and Friday afternoon tours will be open to all. Due to the small size of the tours, participants may not bring any guests with them. For summer tours, we are not able to store any luggage or bags, so any items participants bring with them, they will need to carry throughout the tour. Free parking is available for tour participants. All participants must submit a Health and Safety Acknowledgement Form one business day prior to their scheduled tour. Further logistics will be emailed after registration. Please see below for in-person tour offerings.

Summer Admissions Information Sessions 
These Zoom sessions, hosted on Tuesdays at 3:00pm ET from June 8 – August 3, are for prospective students seeking to apply for Fall 2022 or a future admissions cycle. During this session an Admissions Counselor will provide an overview of our admissions process, financial aid options, and some of our academic offerings. You can sign up to attend a session here.

Wondering what it's like to brief your first case, conduct legal research for the Department of Justice, or represent your first client? How can you balance studying for classes, working at an externship or for a law clinic and still have time for a social life? Here's an opportunity to connect with a student ambassador about their experience at the Washington College of Law and their life in Washington, DC.

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, our Admissions team will be participating in a number of virtual recruitment events hosted by The Law School Admissions Counsel (LSAC), different consortia, and undergraduate institutions.
