Entering Student Program

The Entering Student Program is our orientation for first-year law students.

Incoming students will have a chance to meet their classmates and attend a social event with the Dean’s Fellows. You’ll also complete our five-day Lawyering Boot Camp, where Lawyering Skills faculty provide the essential tools to excel in law school.
