Welcome to UC Hastings! We in the Student Services Office look forward to your arrival!
The Office of Student Services is here for you!
Law school is often likened to boot camp - it can be strenuous and challenging. We realize that while you may not always enjoy the experience, you will come out of law school appreciative for the journey, with excellent lawyering skills, and ready to join the legal profession - and hopefully have some fun along the way.
Like the Academic Dean’s Office, the Office of Student Services is here to support you academically, professionally, and personally. We primarily focus on supporting you in your activities and endeavors outside of the classroom. This includes academic planning, bar admissions planning, registering and collaborating with all 60+ student organizations and student government on campus, hosting large academic events such as orientation and commencement, just-for-fun events like ice cream socials, and wellness activities like free yoga five days per week.
For current students, we are your first point of contact for any general or personal questions or concerns you may have. Most importantly, we are your liaison, voice, and advocate to the rest of the Administration.
We are excited for your arrival and hope to make your transition to law school as smooth as possible.
