Visiting the Law School

Visiting the Law School

The Law School encourages applicants and prospective students to visit the David A. Harrison III Law Grounds, located about two hours from the Washington D.C. area, in Charlottesville, Va. Visitor parking is available at the Law School (see map to view visitor parking); ask for a parking pass in the Admissions Office.

Tours and Class Visits

Admissions visitors are welcomed to UVA Law during regular business hours throughout the work week. The law school building is closed to the public on weekends. From Monday, Jan. 28, to Friday, April 26, visitors may take student-led tours and attend a selection of classes. The Law School also hosts a student life panel as well as a Q&A session with an admissions officer on Fridays from Feb. 1 through April 26. Please see below for the schedule of available classes and admissions events. Reservations are not necessary for any of the events listed on the schedule.

Visitors attending a law school class should arrive in the classroom a few minutes early to introduce themselves to the professor. We also ask that class visitors refrain from using their cell phones or other electronic devices during class.

Please note that classes appearing on this schedule may occasionally be cancelled with little or no notice. Class visits and student-led tours are not available during the Law School’s spring break (Monday, March 11-Friday, March 15) or during the Admitted Students Open House (Thursday, March 21-Friday, March 22).

Visitors who wish to speak with an admissions officer may do so on a walk-in basis during regular office hours, depending on the availability of admissions officers. Visitors who are unable to attend a guided tour may take an audio tour of the building at their convenience.

Getting to the Law School

 
The Grounds

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. Map
