Law School Office of Student Affairs

The Office of Student Affairs (OSA) provides a wide range of services and programs to our students. Our primary responsibility is to provide the necessary information, resources, guidance and support to enable our students to both accomplish academic goals and develop the skills, competency and character necessary to serve with distinction as members of the legal profession.

OSA staff members strive to create an atmosphere of care, excellence and professionalism—three qualities that elevate service to the highest level.

Current students, faculty, and staff can find documents, forms, FAQs, and other resources on DragonNet.
