Summer 2024 Group Advising Sessions for Rising 2Ls

We will offer group advising sessions for rising 2Ls on Monday, June 17 and Tuesday, June 18, to help you prepare for fall registration. Advisors from Academic Services (OAS), Career Services (OCS), and the Public Interest Law Center (PILC) will address all your inquiries about course registration, academic requirements, career planning, and course selection. OCS counselors will be advising on June 17, and PILC counselors will be available on June 18. While attendance is not mandatory, we highly encourage you to attend a session. The deadline to sign up for a group advising session is Monday, June 10.

Advising sessions are capped at 10 students, and each session is 20 minutes long. To get the most out of your session, we strongly recommend familiarizing yourselves with our Areas of Study, the Schedule of Classes, and our Degree Requirements beforehand.

To register for an advising session, please follow these two (2) steps: 

  1. Upload the following advising materials to a JIRA ticket:
    • Resume (only if you intend to meet with an OCS counselor)
    • Unofficial transcript
    • Word document with the following information:
      • Expected graduation term and year
      • Short-term goals and practice areas of interest
      • Courses you are planning to take in Fall 2024 / Spring 2025 (refer to the Schedule of Classes)
      • Study abroad plans, if any
      • Specific questions or concerns you need addressed before course registration
  1. Schedule your group advising appointment for June 17 (OCS) or June 18 (PILC).
    • While scheduling your appointment, copy the JIRA ticket number to your appointment request under “Reasons for your Appointment.”

Please note, these group sessions are exclusively for rising 2Ls. Rising 3Ls who need to make sure they’re on track to graduate can schedule individual appointments with an academic advisor (see below) or a counselor in OCS or PILC


Summer 2024 Individual Advising Appointments for Rising 2Ls and 3Ls

Rising 3Ls who need to make sure they're on track to graduate or rising 2Ls who are unable to attend a group advising session can schedule individual appointments with an academic advisor. Please note that for career planning advisement you must meet with a counselor in PILC or OCS.

We look forward to meeting with you!
