We look forward to welcoming your in-person visits to the Admissions Office when it physically re-opens. Until then, we are still here for you! Email us to set up a time to meet virtually or by phone.

Weekly Virtual Admissions Visits

We are excited to offer prospective students the chance to virtually connect with GW Law admissions representatives, faculty, and current students. Every Wednesday afternoon this fall, we will host Zoom sessions on a variety of topics of interest to prospective students. The approximate format of every session (with the exception of the virtual tour) will include a 15-minute presentation, followed by about five to ten minutes of Q and A. Feel free to join as many sessions as you like and bring lots of questions for us, please! We look forward to connecting with you. Registration information and links to the sessions will be posted as the dates approach.
