Visit Us

WashULaw welcomes and encourages visits by prospective students to learn about our campus 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 campus, meet with an admissions counselor, and visit a first-year class during your visit.

When You Should 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 Office of Admissions is open Monday through Friday throughout the academic year and the summer.  Washington University is closed for some national holidays and occasional events.  Please contact the Admissions Office for more information.  Note:  The university will be closed on Friday, July 4.

How to Schedule A Visit

Please contact the Office of Admissions and make an appointment to visit, either by calling the office at (314) 935-4525 or by emailing  admiss@wulaw.wustl.edu.  During your visit you are invited to meet with an Admissions Counselor to talk about your application and the admissions process.
