During the academic year we offer tours of Sullivan Hall on select Saturdays. This popular event provides you with the opportunity to get the "inside scoop" on the Seattle University experience. Current students will address your questions, concerns, fears, and curiosity on what it means to apply to law school and survive and enjoy it.

We offer class visits every day of the week. Give us a call and we will be happy to schedule your visit.
