The best way to learn about Northeastern and our LLM offerings is a campus visit. We invite you to meet with an LLM admissions representative, take a tour of the law school with a current JD student, sit in on a first-year law school class or speak with a graduate of the LLM program. When you visit Northeastern University School of Law, you’ll see students hard at work together and professors with their office doors wide open. We look forward to welcoming you to campus!

Meet an LLM Representative
When visiting campus, you are encouraged to schedule individual appointments with either a representative from the LLM and International Programs office, or the faculty director for one of the concentrations or dual-degree programs. To request an appointment, please email or call 617-373-6970. The LLM and International Programs office is located in 302B Dockser Hall. When you arrive to our campus at 416 Huntington Avenue in Boston, please enter Dockser Hall located at 65 Forsyth Street, Boston, MA 02115. Please enter the building through the glass doors on Forsyth Street, come up the elevator (to the left) to the third floor, and then proceed to the LLM and International Programs office in 302B Dockser Hall (first door on the left).

Tours and Class Visits
Throughout most of the year, tours of the law school are offered each day Monday through Friday. Tours are led by current JD students* and meet in the law school JD Office of Admissions, located at 101 Knowles (416 Huntington Avenue). Students are also welcome to sit in on a first-year class September through May, or an upper-level class during the summer months.
