    Is it per code to install a subpanel in a walk in closet?

    I agree with Steve.  Some people feel that if the panel was installed in a spot where nothing is stored, or out of harms way) then it would permitted.  A situation might be on a wall that the door opens onto.  Most inspectors will not approve it anywhere in the clothes closet
