Visit: Virtual Tour, Information Sessions and Open House Programs
We offer a variety of convenient ways for you to experience a day in the life of NIU Law and to get to know our supportive, inspiring community of faculty, staff and students.
The best way to get to know the NIU Law community is to schedule a visit. We are excited that you are interested in visiting the College of Law and learning more about what it is like to be an NIU Law student. Campus visits are offered on Thursdays at select times. Please select the date and time that works best for you and your two guests. A 24-hour business day notice is required for all reservations.
We invite you to join us on a virtual tour of Northern Illinois University College of Law.
NIU Law is at the heart of a diverse and active university campus, located on the western edge of the Chicago metropolitan area, one of the world's largest and most diversified economies.
Northern Illinois University College of Law provides a high-quality and affordable education that prepares students to become effective, creative and ethical lawyers, ready to serve the legal needs of their communities. We pride ourselves on our unique atmosphere of collegiality and cooperation within our law school community, as well as our commitment to fostering access to law school and the legal profession by traditionally underrepresented groups.
Prospective students are invited to register for one of our small-group online information sessions consisting of a brief admissions presentation followed by a Q&A session. Sessions are offered Fridays at noon or by appointment.
Open House Programs
Learn more about the life of an NIU Law student by attending one of our open house programs scheduled throughout the year. Open House Programs typically feature a welcome from the dean, a mock class, a student panel discussion and a tour of the College of Law.
