Virtual Events

Due to the COVID-19 virus, the University of Richmond is closed to visitors. However, the Office of Admissions invites you to meet with admissions representatives at various virtual events where they are happy to answer questions and make materials available to you. Options include but are not limited to general admission sessions, personal statement workshops, and law student panels. Please know that all sessions allow time for individual questions as we know you may have specific needs. 

Take a look below for recurring events held throughout the summer, and be on the lookout for a full schedule of Fall events later in the summer. If you have questions about attending an event, please contact us by telephone at 804-289-8189 or by email at lawadmissions@richmond.edu.
