The law school provides various academic success services to students including an Academic Skills Assistance Program (ASAP). The Office of Services for Students with Disabilities works with students with learning differences and helps address appropriate accommodations.

The law school is very proud of its commitment to public service. All JD students are required to complete at least 30 hours of public service in order to graduate. Students interested in public service also can apply for one of the many public service externships.

Students in the law school participate in a wealth of student activities. The Student Bar Association and numerous other student organizations offer programs and activities of interest to our diverse student body. They also provide opportunities for leadership and service to the school and the community.
