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.

Virtual Open House

As admissions professionals, we know better than anyone that people are so much more than what you see on paper. The same is true for our law school! Although the University (recently named Princeton Review’s #1 Most Beautiful Campus) is currently closed to visitors, we invite you to join us for a Virtual Open House to experience Richmond Law for yourself.

Our Virtual Open Houses are a great introduction to the Richmond Law community. Each event will include:

  • Richmond Law Overview
  • Career Development Overview
  • Student Panel
  • Individual Q&A
  • Optional Virtual Class

We hope to see you soon!
