Elon Law Admissions Updates Related to Coronavirus/Covid-19 (March-June 2020)

Thank you for your interest in Elon Law!  We hope you, your family and those important to you are safe and healthy during this health emergency.

We also wanted to share some information about our admissions process through mid June. While we are taking steps to limit in-person interaction to address coronavirus concerns, our Admissions Office remains available and looks forward to assisting you throughout the admissions process. We are actively admitting the Elon Law Class of 2022 and are excited about enrolling a class of 150 talented and diverse students in August 2020.

Until then, please join Senior Associate Dean Alan Woodlief through the virtual tour below of Elon Law’s downtown Greensboro facilities. After viewing the virtual tour, please email us at lawadmissions@elon.edu if you would like to make an appointment to speak with an admissions ambassador.

Elon Law Admissions will operate as follows through mid June:

  • We continue to receive and review applications, make admissions decisions and communicate these decisions to applicants. If you have not yet applied, we look forward to receiving your application and encourage you to apply soon for optimal admissions and scholarship consideration. Through our rolling admissions process, we welcome applications throughout the spring and summer, accept the June LSAT and offer admission to a significant number of candidates between April and July.  If you have questions, or if we can be of assistance to you, please email us at lawadmissions@elon.edu, or call us at (888) ELON-Law or (336) 279-9229.
  • For the safety of our community and visitors to campus, we are suspending all campus visits through mid June. All instruction for the 2020 Spring Trimester will be conducted online, as will final exams. Elon Law facilities will remain closed to students through the end of final exams in June. We anticipate facilities reopening in June, and the August term proceeding in-person on a regular schedule. Elon University will continue to assess the situation, and we look forward to welcoming you to campus at the earliest possible date. More information about Elon University’s steps to keep students, faculty, staff, and visitors safe and healthy is available here.
  • While campus visits are suspended, we encourage prospective students to take advantage of the virtual tour of our facilities above. We also regularly host online chats for prospective students (see the “visit campus” web page under chats). In addition, you can schedule a phone call or online chat with a member of the admissions staff and/or a student admissions ambassador.  Email the Admissions Office at lawadmissions@elon.edu, or call us at (888) ELON-LAW or (336) 279-9229.
  • While the April 3 Admitted Students Day was canceled, the Admissions Office will be scheduling several live “virtual” events for admitted students, as well as posting recorded tours of our facilities and presentations on a variety of topics, including a mock class, career services, academic success and more.  Please be on the lookout for more information about these opportunities to engage with the Elon Law community and learn more about our program and people.
  • We understand that some students attend schools that are temporarily closed. If a school closure or test cancellation is preventing you from completing your application, or submitting any required or requested materials, please contact us.

Please reach out to us if we can answer any additional questions about the admissions process, or if we can be of assistance to you.  The Admissions Office can be reached by email at lawadmissions@elon.edu, or by phone at (888) ELON-LAW or (336) 279-9229.
