Connect with JD Admissions
We look forward to welcoming you to campus.
Feel free to pick up a Self-Guided Tour outside the Office of Admissions & Financial Aid, Room 231, to tour William H. Gates Hall at your leisure during regular business hours.
Guided tours are offered on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 12:30 p.m. during the academic year. Our guided tours are by appointment only, scheduled at least a week in advance by submitting a Visit Request Form. Each tour, led by a Student Ambassador, lasts approximately thirty minutes.
Our Student Ambassadors are current law students eager to share their experiences and enthusiasm for the University of Washington.
Visit a Law School Class
Visiting a first-year or upper-level class is a great way to understand how law school is taught.
Class visits will resume in the fall. A schedule will be posted in late September.
When visiting a class, please arrive early and introduce yourself to the professor as a visiting prospective student. Please take a seat in the back of the class, and ensure your cell phone is silent. To avoid disrupting the learning process, please plan to attend the entire class. If the professor offers a break, you may choose to leave at that time.
Occasionally a class will be cancelled on short notice, and while we will do our best to notify scheduled attendees of the cancellation, please understand that is not always possible—we appreciate your understanding.
Meet with an Admissions Representative
Our admissions representatives are ready to answer your questions. If you'd like to make an appointment with an admissions representative, please let us know in the Visit Request Form.
While we encourage you to schedule your visit in advance, we welcome walk-in visitors. Please feel free to stop by the Office of Admissions & Financial Aid, Room 231, to ask any questions about the law school, the admissions process or to pick up a self-guided tour booklet.
Visiting During the Summer or Interim Periods
Although a guided tour and visiting a class are unavailable during the summer and interim periods, we still welcome your visit to the law school. The Office of Admissions & Financial Aid is open regular business hours during the summer and interim periods.
