The Student Services Office is available to assist students in a number of ways. In the Student Services Office you will find the Senior Assistant Dean of Law Student Services, the Director of Student Life, the Associate Registrar, and a very friendly staff!

The Student Services Office supports the academic and personal needs of students and contributes to the law school wide development and implementation of student life programs and initiatives.

Academic Counseling

Each spring the law school publishes an Academic Advising guide (The Pink Book) that highlights graduation requirements, various academic rules, and gives valuable information about course planning and special opportunities such as externships, clinics, and certificate programs. Students are always welcome to meet individually with the Senior Assistant Dean, the Associate Registrar, or the Director of Student Life to discuss their academic plans.

Personal Counseling

The Staff is always available to assist students with personal issues in a confidential and safe environment. Students should come in to discuss matters affecting them before they become major issues. Students are always welcome to meet individually with The Senior Assistant Dean or the Director of Student Life to help resolve problems.
