Graduate Affairs for LLM and Exchange Students

Programs and Events for LLM and Exchange Students

The Office of Graduate Affairs is committed to building community and to providing stimulating programming for LLM and Exchange students through various events throughout the academic year. The Office of Graduate Affairs events and programs include Global Receptions, the Global Leadership Skills Series, a Spring trip to Washington DC, and various social activities.

We encourage LLM and Exchange students regularly to check the Law School Calendar and The Docket for information on the myriad and diverse activities the Law School offers. Events popular across the entire Law School community include Fall Ball, Feast for Finals, PILC Auction and the Dean's Cup. Students should also check the calendars for the Office of Career Services and the Public Interest Law Center for career-specific programming offered throughout the academic year.
