2015 Admitted Students Weekend

Friday, March 20 – Saturday, March 21, 2015

The University of Wisconsin Law School is very pleased to announce the date for this year's Admitted Students Weekend. The weekend's events are designed to help admitted students learn more about the life of a law student at the University of Wisconsin Law School. 

Students will have an opportunity to meet and interact with current students, faculty and administrators as they learn what makes our law-in-action approach so valuable. We hope you will be able to join us.

Please note: If you are unable to attend Admitted Students Weekend, you may still arrange a private visit that fits your schedule. Please contact the Admissions Office at 608-262-5914 or admissions@law.wisc.edu.
