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.
Wake Forest Law offers both virtual and in-person opportunities to learn more about our school. In our Virtual Information Sessions, we will review application timelines, program information, view a short walking tour of the law school, and dedicate time to answer your questions. Our in-person workshops serve as an opportunity for prospective students to learn more about the Wake Forest Law experience and specific aspects of the admissions process.

Gauging current student perspectives is important when deciding where you'll attend law school. If you would like to speak with one of our current students about their experience or to seek their advice, we invite you to schedule a Zoom meeting below.
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 the Wake Forest University School of Law is right for you.
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 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.
Admissions representatives will be in attendance at various law fairs throughout the semester.
