Let experience help you decide what is best for you. We encourage you to visit us in person. You’ll get a sense of our community and caliber of education by connecting with current students, attending a class, and taking a student-led tour of the law school. There is no better way to determine if Wake Forest University School of Law is right for you than by visiting us on campus.
We believe visiting campus is the most effective way for you to learn about the unique experience Wake Forest School of Law provides. Your visit may include a student-led tour of the law school, a chance to meet with an admissions counselor, and the opportunity to sit in on a first-year class. We encourage you to visit when classes are in session. For such visits, we ask that you allow at least two hours for the visit.
Each spring, we host open houses for accepted students to get more acquainted with our people and our programs. You’ll have a chance to meet with faculty and current students, attend a class, and tour the law school.
