Cumberland School of Law students

“Visiting” in the south means more than just taking a trip somewhere, it can also mean to sit down and have a chat. So we invite you to “visit” with us using the method you prefer – virtual or in-person! The best way to get a sense of the right law school for you is to visit campus. At Cumberland School of Law, we welcome visitors all year long, on campus or virtually. Tour campus; sit in on a law school class; talk with current students, admissions officers, and faculty—all will help you establish a genuine sense of place and experience.

Reservations are recommended to ensure that we are able to tailor your visit to your interests and needs; however, drop-in visitors are always welcome.

Prelaw societies or other prelaw organizations interested in planning a day visit or mini open house for your group can make arrangements by contacting the Office of Admission.

To schedule and tailor a campus visit, contact the Office of Admission.

Attend an Open House

Prospective students are invited to our admission open houses. During an open house you will tour the law school, hear from faculty and students during Q&A discussion panels, learn about scholarships and fellowships, discover the law school’s programs and centers, and gain a thorough understanding of the admission process. Registration is required for open houses.
