Visit Iowa Law

Students join tour groups at Admitted Students Day


Prospective Student Tours

Tours During the Academic Year
Visits for prospective students generally include attending a class and touring the building. Tours are typically given by current law students, so we do not schedule law school visits during  school holidays, on weekends,  or one week before or during examination periods. Self-guided tours are available at any time, along with an appointment with an admissions counselor.

Tours will be given during the following dates in 2014:

January 27 - April 18

Mondays: 10 a.m.
Wednesdays: 10 a.m.
Fridays: 11 a.m.

Tours During Academic Breaks
It may be possible to schedule a tour-only visit during winter, spring, or summer break, depending on tour guide availability. When student guides are not available, prospective students are welcome to come and take a self-guided tour. Prospective students who visit during these breaks will not be able to sit in on a law class because regular classes will not be in session.

To Schedule a Tour
To schedule a tour, please contact the Admissions Office.
