Plan your visit
Berkeley Law School is located on the beautiful campus of the University of California at Berkeley. We are situated between the Berkeley Hills and the San Francisco Bay. Plan for a fun, full day when you visit.
Although we don't offer formal guided tours, you are very welcome to visit us. You can take a self-guided tour of the Law School. Have lunch or grab a snack at our restaurant, Café Zeb, visit our award-winning Library, and check out our newly-renovated classrooms. There are several other options available during your visit:
Tours of the Berkeley Campus
If you are interested in getting to know the wider campus and community, free campus tours are provided daily by the Visitor's Center. They leave from 101 Sproul Hall, located near the intersection of Telegraph Avenue and Bancroft Way. To see the campus from another perspective, take an online tour!
Law School Classes, Clinics, Centers, and Events
We encourage you to observe a class that interests you to get a sense of our students, faculty, and classroom ambiance. Many prospective applicants opt to visit a first-year class but our second- and third-year classes are available as well. We only ask that you not visit small first-year Writing and Research classes. Please arrive at the classroom five minutes before the class begins to introduce yourself to the professor and ask permission to observe. Ask if they have a preference where you sit as some classes have assigned seating. Please do not enter classes late or leave early. The schedule of classes is available here. To confirm the dates that classes are in session, check the academic calendar in advance.
For information about upcoming events at the law school (speakers, symposia, etc.) that might pique your interest, check out the Events Calendar.
Contact Student Organizations
We recommend finding time to chat with current students. You will discover that they are quite friendly and approachable. To contact a specific student group (e.g., Law Students of African Descent, The Federalist Society, Queer Caucus, etc.), check out the list of our student organizations. The organization list provides contact information, and all of our student groups are willing to answer questions about student life, school, and everything else at Berkeley.
Connect with the Admissions Office
Applicant Information Sessions are offered in the fall, and we also travel throughout the country to provide information about our applicaiton and review process. You can check out our Recruitment Calendar to see where we'll be visiting this fall.
After you have had a chance to plan the date of your visit, you are welcome to meet with an admissions counselor in our office. Make an appointment through our online appointment system. Our office is located in the law complex at the corner of Bancroft Way and Piedmont Avenue:
