Please note: While Tulane University remains open, classes have moved to online instruction for the remainder of the spring semester and the Office of Admission team is working remotely from home. Unfortunately, we are no longer able to accomodate campus visitors. If you are an admitted student, please use the admitted student website to schedule a virtual meeting with one of our Assistant Directors. If you are a current active applicant awaiting a decision, have received a waitlist offer, or are a prospective student for Fall 2020, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and a member of our office will be in touch to set up a time to chat. We will update our Summer tour schedule as soon as we are able to accomodate on campus visitors again.
Tulane Law School welcomes prospective students, their families and other guests or visitors who would like to tour the Law School.
A typical visit includes a guided tour of Weinmann Hall, led by a current law student or a member of the admission staff. We can also arrange for prospective students to attend a class and meet with current students and faculty, upon request.
We suggest visiting the law school when classes are in session in order to obtain a better sense of what law school life is like. To plan your visit, call 504.865.5930 between 8:30 am and 5:00 pm (central time) Monday through Friday, or use the Schedule Your Visit form below. We welcome visitors during these hours and encourage you to register for a visit at least one week ahead of time. If you are able to visit only on weekend days, please let us know, and we will try to accommodate you.
Standard tours of the entire campus are given on weekdays and occasional weekends at 9 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Reservations are not required.
