Educational and Support Services
The Law School is but one of the University of Michigan's 19 schools and colleges. When you begin your career as a law student, you will also become a member of the University community.
Academic and most administrative policies are made and administered by the faculty and administrative officers of the Law School, usually with the advice of various standing committees. These committees oversee matters such as academic regulations, curriculum, degree requirements, discipline, and financial aid. Student members, appointed by the Law School Student Senate (LSSS), serve with the faculty on most committees. Major administrative, financial, and University-wide policies are established by the University’s administrative officers and are administered centrally, as well as within the Law School.
The Law School and the University provide a variety of student services. Some, such as academic advising and career services, are provided within the Law School. Others, such as recreational facilities and health services, are provided by the University. Still others, such as services for students with disabilities and personal counseling, are provided by the Law School, the Lawyers Club Residence Hall, and the University.
The information contained in this section is provided to assist you in making the Law School and University responsive to your needs. Difficulties with the services provided by the Law School or the University, suggestions for additional services or for improvement of existing services, and other issues of importance or interest to students should be brought to the attention of the individual providers or to David Baum or Darren Nealy in the Office of Student Life.
