Office of Student Services

Department Services

Much of our portfolio is dedicated to the J.D. experience although we do coordinate events for both the J.D. and LL.M. populations (student organization support, university-mandated compliance matters, and graduation). In general please reach out if you have questions about orientation, academic advising, academic support, student organization support, journals, diversity and inclusion programming, health and wellness programs, housing, or graduation, or if you are simply experiencing a disruption that has an impact on your ability to study.
