The Northwestern Law Office of Admissions and Financial Aid would like to wish everyone a very happy and healthy holiday season!
Please note we will be closed on the following dates: December 24, 25, 26, as well as December 31 through January 2.
Last Tuesday, we had a great virtual town hall meeting with Dean Rodriguez. If you weren’t able to join us, you can find a transcript of the chat on our website. During the chat we received a number of admissions-specific questions. Because Dean Rodriguez is not involved in the minutiae of processing applications (that’s why he has our office!), we decided to set those questions aside and answer them on the blog. Find answers to our leftover but no less important questions below.
Don’t forget to join us tomorrow at 5:00 p.m. CST for a virtual town hall meeting with Dean Rodriguez!
This meeting will allow prospective students to bring their big picture questions about Northwestern Law, legal education in the United States, and today’s legal job market directly to the Dean.
We are proud to attend the university that graduated the first female law student in the country, a university whose Bluhm Legal Clinic played a role in abolishing the death penalty in Illinois, and a university that last century welcomed Black law students from their segregationist home states, students who went on to do great things for their communities. Let us continue to be on the forefront, and leverage the unique position we are in as law students to effect change. Let us stand together against injustice, against discrimination, and against oppression in all cities, in all states, and in all countries.

Earlier in the year we talked about the fee waiver we were offering to anyone who applied by November 30, 2014. That date has come and gone, and we are now no longer offering a blanket waiver. However, it is still possible to have your application fee waived.
