Virtual Visit Activities

Warren Building Entrance
Warren main entrance

Located in a beautiful residential area of Washington, DC, our 8.5 acre campus is one block from the Tenleytown/AU Metro Station. The Office of Admissions created a virtual tour after our school had moved to online instruction this spring due to COVID-19 and we weren't able to offer live in-person tours. We hope this gives you a sense of the ample study spaces, bright classrooms and some of our courtroom facilities.
