How to Visit the Columbus School of Law

There are many opportunities to visit our community at The Catholic University of America Columbus School of Law (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.

Our Fall Semester began on August 22, 2016. With the exceptions of Labor Day, Columbus Day, and our Thanksgiving Break (November 23 to November 25), we will offer tours of the law school (see our Fall 2016 tour schedule below - evening class visits can be arranged by emailing, as well as opportunities to sit in on a class Monday through Friday.
