Information Session and Open House

The Law School hosted an Information Session on Wednesday November 9, 2016, and an Open House on Saturday February 11, 2017. If you missed either of these events, don't worry, you can still schedule a tour of the Columbus School of Law to learn first hand about the law school building and what it's like to attend law school in the nation's capital at The Catholic University of America Columbus School of Law (CUA Law).

How to Visit the Columbus School of Law

There are many opportunities to visit our community at CUA Law. We welcome you to select the most convenient and attractive means for you. Each of these opportunities will enable you to meet current students and faculty and to witness the dynamic within the Law School. We encourage you to assess your comfort level during your visit and to ask questions. The investment in a law school education is a significant one. We hope to be of assistance as you make your final decision.


Daily Tours

Our Spring Semester begins on January 9, 2017. With the exceptions of MLK Day, Inauguration Day, and our week-long Spring Break (March 6 to March 10) and our recognition of the Easter holiday (April 13 through April 17), we will offer tours of the law school, as well as opportunities to sit in on a class Monday through Friday (Spring Class Schedule will be posted soon). Led by current CUA Law students, these 30–45 minute tours will enable you to view classrooms, our library, the student café, the Slowinski Courtroom, and the hub of student activity — our three-story tall atrium.

Full Scholarships Available to CUA Law

Scholarships are awarded by the Admissions Office and decisions are based on a review of the applicant’s entire application file. LSAT scores and prior Grade Point Averages are an important, but not exclusive component in the awarding process.
