Visiting Students

In order to be eligible for admission, visitor applicants must be students in good standing at another law school accredited by the American Bar Association (ABA). Wake Forest University School of Law prefers that your law school is also a member of the Association of American Law Schools (AALS).

As a current law student at an ABA-accredited law school, you may apply to Wake Forest School of Law as a visiting student. Credits earned at Wake Forest School of Law may transfer to your home institution to be applied towards your degree requirements. Visiting student applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.
