NOTE: Our staff is working remotely due to COVID-19. Posted below are our virtual fall activities.
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. Posted below are our virtual fall activities.

All prospective students are welcome to attend our Admissions Information Sessions, hosted most Mondays from 3:00-4:00pm ET through May 17 and Thursdays from 1:00-2:00pm ET through March 18.

Connect with Student Ambassadors
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.
We will add any virtual events that are open to the general public to this Recruitment Calendarthroughout the fall semester.
All events for the fall of 2020 will be conducted virtually. Many of the events hosted by the law school are open to the public. Please view the law school's Events Calendar.
