Visit UT Law

Schedule a visit

There’s no better way to learn about UT Law than by visiting campus. We invite you to schedule a visit with our admissions team. We will work with you to create your customized visit.

During your visit, you can tour the College of Law building with a student ambassador, attend a law school class, speak with a professor in your area of interest, meet with a financial aid advisor, and discuss employment with the staff of the Bettye B. Lewis Career Center.

Visits are available year-round, but the most beneficial time to visit is during the fall or spring semester, when most students are in the building.

Fall 2018 tours begin Sept. 7 and are available on Mondays and Fridays. The schedule is as follows:

  • 8:45 a.m. (EST) – Arrive
  • 9 a.m. – Class Visit
  • 10 a.m. – College of Law tour with a current student
