Plan your Law School visit
Meet With an Admissions Officer
We are happy to meet with visitors on weekdays during normal business hours to answer questions about Duke Law School and the admissions process. These are informational meetings; they are not part of the admissions process and are not evaluative interviews. If you would like to meet with an admissions representative, please contact the Office of Admissions several business days in advance of your visit. Time slots fill up quickly and we are unable to accommodate same-day or drop-in appointments. You may reach us by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (919-613-7020).
Law School Student-Guided Tours
For the Fall 2019 semester, student-led tours of the law school are given weekdays at 10:00 a.m. when classes are in session. They last 30-45 minutes, so visitors who wish to attend a class beginning at 10:55 should be able to do so. Tours depart from the Duke Law Admissions Office, Suite 2023, (919) 613-7020, email@example.com. No appointment is necessary. Student-led tours are not available during student holidays, the reading and exam periods, or during the summer.
For Fall 2019, tours will begin on September 2 and conclude on December 5, the last day of classes. Tours will not be offered during Fall Break (October 7-11), or the Thanksgiving Break (November 27-29).
Law School Self-Guided Tours
If you are unable to plan your visit around the student-guided tour, we also offer self-guided tours year round. Please stop by the Office of Admissions weekdays during normal business hours to check-in and pick up the self-guided tour brochure.
Observing a Class
Many visitors want to get a feel for the classroom atmosphere at Duke Law. For the Fall 2019 semester, we suggest visiting the following classes. No prior appointment is necessary. These professors have agreed in advance to welcome visitors to their classes, and ask that you introduce yourself before class and save any questions you may have until after the class has concluded.
Class Visit Options Fall 2019
Although this information is complete to the best of our knowledge, please be aware that classes may be cancelled without notice due to faculty illness, etc.
In the Spring semester, classes begin on August 26. Classes do not meet on Labor Day (September 2) or during Fall Break (October 7-11) or the Thanksgiving Break (November 27-29).. The last day of classes is December 5. (See the academic calendar.)
It is possible to visit other classes with the consent of the instructor. For faculty contact information, see the faculty directory.
Law School Events
When classes are in session, interesting speakers, panels, and discussions abound at Duke Law. Review the Law School Event Calendar to see what's happening while you'll be here. Unless otherwise noted, all events are open to the public -- and they may feed you lunch, too.
While we hope that you will be able to visit the Law School, you may also wish to meet with our admissions staff at a law school fair near you. Visit the recruitment calendar
