Academic advising aims to help you learn how to achieve your academic and professional goals. At the College of Law, you bear the primary responsibility for your own academic planning, which includes planning which courses to take, making timely progress toward the your degree, ensuring all graduation requirements are met and preparing for the bar exam. The Academic Success director is the professional staff advisor for law students and is always available to help in academic and professional planning. In addition, it is vital for you to identify one or more faculty or staff members who can mentor you during and after law school.
The college helps facilitate your academic planning by
- preparing advising materials
- holding planning meetings
- facilitating interaction with faculty, J.D. staff, and lawyers
- performing degree audits.
