Class Visits

We welcome prospective student visits to our law school classes during the fall and spring semester, and we offer opportunities to visit both our day and evening programs.  Students interested in our evening program are given the opportunity to visit for an entire sequence of evening courses, from 6:30 to 9:30 on most Thursday evenings.  Due to the nature of our courses at the School, we can only accommodate prospective students (not their guests).

When visiting a class, we ask students to plan to arrive at least fifteen minutes prior to allow for parking, check-in, and to get to the class.  Students are asked to report to the Admissions Office to check-in and be escorted to the class.  We also ask that students introduce themselves to the professor and that they stay for the entire duration of the class. Also, please refrain from participating in the class unless invited to do so by the professor.

If you are interested in attending one of the classes listed below, please send an email request 72 hours prior to the date of the class visit to law_admissions@nccu.edu.  Include in your email your full name, a telephone number where you can be reached, and the date you wish to attend a class.  You will receive a confirmation email within 24-48 hours.
