Visit Us

WashULaw encourages prospective students to visit our campus to learn about the school firsthand: friendly students, accessible faculty, state-of-the-art facilities, and the many events held at the law school. You are welcome to take a tour of the school, meet with an admissions counselor, and visit a first-year class during your visit.

When to Visit

We welcome visitors at any time of the year but encourage you to come when classes are in session to experience our community.  The Admissions Office is open Monday through Friday throughout the academic year and the summer.  Washington University is closed for some national holidays and occasional events. 

VISITING OVER WINTER BREAK: The Admissions Office will be open through winter break, and we would love to welcome you for a visit during this time. Please note that the university will be closed on December 25-26 and January 1. Please call (314) 935-4525 for more details.
