Visiting the UH Law Center

        The Office of Admissions encourages all admitted applicants to visit UHLC. We host several visitation days to assist
        admitted applicants in learning more about what makes UHLC an exceptional school. If one of our formal programs
        does not fit your schedule, individual visits can also be arranged, including a tour of UHLC with one of our Student
        Ambassadors, a visit to a first-year class, or an appointment with a member of the admissions staff or others within
        the law school. Visits are best scheduled when classes are in session and should be arranged in advance by calling
        713.743.2280 or by sending an e-mail to lawadmissions@uh.edu.
