Visit the School of Law

We encourage you to visit the University of Arkansas School of Law to learn more about who we are and where we are going. While our website should give you a good sense of our community, nothing takes the place of a personal visit.

Prospective Students

Law School Visits - Beginning September 8th

The law school will gradually reopen to visits in September. The safety of our guests and the UofA community is our top priority. We will continue to seek guidance from health officials and follow local, state and national guidelines and make adjustments based on the information available.

Visit Components

All visits will include an information session with an Admissions representative and a tour of the building. During this period, we will not be offering additional appointments or live class observations. Prospective students will be able to join a live stream of a first-year course. Class observations may resume later in the semester, depending on health guidance and classroom capacity. All guests will meet for their tour in the Norma Lea Beasley Entry Hall.

Policies

At this time, we are asking our prospective students to only bring one guest per prospective student to their visit. All guests are required to wear a mask while on campus. Unfortunately, at this time we will not be hosting groups on campus.

Scheduling

Please register for your visit as early as possible by emailing lawadmit@uark.edu or calling 479-575-3102. Until further notice, visits are by appointment only and we cannot accept walk-ins. You may also schedule a video call (using Zoom, etc.) with the Admissions staff.

Visit Accommodations

The University of Arkansas is dedicated to providing equal access to our guests. If you, or someone in your party, require disability-related accommodations while attending our visit program we will make every reasonable effort to provide appropriate accommodations and resources during your visit. Please let us know your needs as soon as possible. Advance notice provides the greatest opportunity to ensure effective accommodations are provided to meet the needs of our guests.
