Choosing which law school you will attend is a considerable choice. We recognize how important it is for you to experience as much as possible before making your decision — viewing campus facilities, seeing the interactions between students and professors, and exploring the curricular and student life opportunities available. Wake Forest Law is dedicated to providing engaging experiences that show not only how we have adapted to current norms, but how our community thrives regardless of modality.
We invite you to explore the various ways in which to engage with us virtually this semester:
More information about each of these opportunities is contained below.
Since we may not be able to meet you at in-person events this semester, we invite you to join us for a virtual information session where we'll provide you with information and dialogue that is typically available at in-person recruitment events. We'll review application timelines, program information, view a short walking tour of the law school, and dedicate time to answer your questions. We're also pleased to offer our traditional in-person workshops in a virtual format.

Gauging current student perspectives is important when deciding where you'll attend law school.

You will have the option to engage via phone call or video conference.
Seeing legal education in action is likely top-of-mind for you in deciding where to pursue your legal education. Our faculty are dedicated to the success of their students, providing a challenging but supportive classroom environment, encouraging their students towards academic and professional excellence. To engage in a virtual first-year course, please register below. Please note that all virtual class visit requests must first be approved by the professor teaching the course to ensure a great experience during your visit.
Gaining perspective of the physical spaces where most of the law school experience takes place is also important. While no virtual experience can match walking through a facility in person, we invite you to join us for a live Virtual Walking Tour or to view our short Virtual Tour video.
Our admissions staff is always eager to engage with prospective students and provide answers to your questions about Wake Forest Law. If you would like to engage with us, feel free to schedule a mutually convenient time below.
