2015 Spring Semester Class Visits

During the fall and spring semesters, Northwestern Law visitors are welcome to sit in on almost any class we offer. We typically encourage visitors to check out 1L courses, as they provide the best sense of what the first year of law school will be like. However, we have a number of elective course offerings this semester that highlight the diversity of classes offered at Northwestern Law.

We asked our Student Admissions Committee, a group of students who work closely with the Admissions Office each year, to give us their best across the board class recommendations. Here’s what they said:
