David Baum, Darren Nealy and Diane Nafranowicz provide counseling and advice and encourage students to share problems and concerns, great or small, whether or not they seem related to the Law School. Many Law School difficulties stem from non-academic problems, and sometimes the opposite is true. Students may be referred to one of the several University offices that provide confidential counseling (see below). Students may also initiate contacts with such offices without referral.
