TOURS

The Admissions Office does not offer guided tours of the law school for prospective applicants, with the exception of the days when we host Applicant Information Sessions (see above). If you cannot attend one of these events, you may take a self-guided tour. Please stop by the Admissions Office, in 396 Simon Hall, to pick up a map and printed guide.

Guided tours of the Berkeley Campus are available Monday-Saturday at 10:00, and on Sunday at 1:00, through the Visitor’s Center located in 101 Sproul Hall, near the intersection of Telegraph Avenue and Bancroft Way.
