Welcome New Students
Excited? Nervous? Confused? A bit of each?
The beginning of law school can be an exciting (and scary)
time. If you are experiencing any of these feelings or have
a question for which you just can't find the answer, stop
by the Office of Student Services. As the Director of Student
Services, I meet with students for a variety of reasons,
including academic and personal counseling, disability accommodations,
administrative concerns, and just general questions. You
don't need to make an appointment, just stop by the office,
room 310, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org,
or call (312)906-5247.
Also, be sure to check out the Student
Services Website. The site contains a great deal of
information and resources to help you in law school.
