School of Law Student Affairs

Supporting Our Students

The Office of Student Affairs provides advice and counseling on academic and non-academic matters for all law students. The office acts as a liaison between students, faculty, and other law school administrators. It provides important information and resources to students on a vast array of issues. When you need answers, the Office of Student Affairs is a great place to start.

Services include: 

  • Short-term counseling and assistance with academic and personal problems, leave of absence, and other issues related to a law student's life. 
  • Coordinating student activities such as first-year orientation and graduation.
  • Hosting workshops designed to enrich student understanding of law school procedures and life as a law student.
  • Overseeing the Student Bar Association and student organizations.
  • Acting as the primary coordinator and liaison for students with disabilities and overseeing the process of providing accommodations to students with disabilities.
  • Assist with short-term emergency loans.
  • Implement procedures for scholarship opportunities for returning students.

We have an open door policy. We encourage students to address any issue that relates to or enriches your law school experience. 

Office hours: 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. (hours are extended until 6:15 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday). The Office of Student Affairs is located in the Blake Law Center in Room 143.
