Tours and Class Visits
Spring semester admissions programming — including Q&A sessions, student-life panels, student-led tours and class visits — will commence Jan. 29, 2018. We encourage admissions visitors to UVA Law to visit us on or after that date. For those who would like to visit UVA Law earlier in the month, the Law School facility will be open for self-guided tours throughout January. Please feel free to drop by the Admissions Office during regular business hours with any questions or to obtain a map.
Check this webpage in the third week of January for the spring semester visiting schedule.

The David A. Harrison III Law Grounds reflect a recent $46 million expansion and renovation project funded entirely by private support from alumni and friends. The Law Grounds feature new classrooms, seminar rooms, and moot courtrooms; comprehensive computer facilities; an expanded library with a three-story reading room; new dining facilities; attractive offices for student organizations; and numerous student lounges. Surrounded by inviting gardens and an elegant, tree-lined lawn, the setting reflects Jefferson’s conviction that locating an intellectual community within a beautiful environment fosters learning and personal growth.
