You can also take a self-guided tour of the Law School. When you arrive on campus, please register in the Admissions Office to get further information on visiting classes. The office is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. The Admissions Office is located at 133 Wall Street, Ruttenberg Hall, on the first floor, room 175.
