Tours of the Law School

We would like to make your visit to the University of Chicago Law School as helpful and informative as possible. We encourage you to take a tour of the Law School and attend one of our classes. Please note that guided student-led tours are available on Mondays and Fridays from November through April when classes are in session.


Student-led tours of the Law School for the 2014-2015 academic year will be available on Mondays and Fridays when classes are in session during the Autumn, Winter, and Spring quarters beginning on Monday, November 3 and ending on Friday, April 24.  Due to Admitted Students Weekend, there will be no student-led tour on Friday, April 10th.

Tours will begin promptly at 12:15 p.m. and leave from the Student Services Suite on the 3rd floor of the library.  Student-led tours are only available while classes are in session. Please check our Academic Calendar prior to planning your visit.

In addition to student-led tours, you are always welcome to visit at any time and take a self-guided tour or the audio tour of the Law School. Our office is open year round, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., with the exception of major holidays. You may stop in the Admissions Office and pick up a self-guided tour of the Law School or you may take an audio tour. Our audio tours are a fun and interactive way to learn about the Law School and are available at the library circulation desk on the second floor. An Admissions Coordinator will be available to answer questions about the Law School.

Attend a Class

We encourage you to visit while classes are in session so that you can experience our academic environment. Prospective students are welcome to observe classes and do not need an appointment. Please review the current course schedule to see what classes are available during your visit. You may also pick up a course schedule in the Admissions Office.  You are welcome to sit in on any of the First Year Required Courses or First Year Electives reflected on the course schedule for that academic quarter, with the exception of the Legal Research and Writing Courses.
