The Office of Student Affairs (OSA) provides comprehensive support for law students. This office is where students conduct most of their daily business -- turning in Legal Research and Writing assignments, registering for classes, scheduling rooms for student organization events, and rescheduling examinations -- just to name a few. The OSA also oversees registration for law courses, administering examinations, and Commencement in the spring.
Summer Holidays. The University is closed on Memorial Day, Monday, May 30th and Monday, July 4th. There are no classes on these days.
Summer 2016 Registration. Session #1 courses are now in process. Students who have signed up for a class in Session #2 will be officially registered for those courses in mid-June.
Spring 2016 Grades. Grades for 1Ls and 2Ls are not due into our office until Tuesday, May 31st. We will try to have all grades proofed and posted by Friday, June 3rd, but please bear in mind that it's a shortened work week with the Memorial Day holiday and it's likely that grades may not be fully in until the following week. We will send an email to law-1 and law-2 when rankings, ranges, and unofficial transcripts are ready.
Locker Contents. Each summer the locker combinations are re-keyed in preparation for the new academic year. Students taking summer school and graduates taking the BarBri prep course are welcome to continue using their lockers until July 29th. During the first week of August, we'll clean out the locker contents. Please clear your locker contents prior to Friday, July 29th.
Class Attendance Tracking
The attendance tracking in JASON is recorded weekly as we receive attendance sheets from the faculty; however, it is ultimately the student's responsibility to track attendance, as reporting in JASON may not always be up to date.
If you find a discrepancy in the records (for example, if you were marked absent on a day that you were in class), email or contact the professor to ask them to notify the OSA to correct the attendance date in question. We can only make a correction if the request is from the Professor. If you know you were absent on a certain date, but JASON doesn't reflect it, please contact either the professor or the OSA to see if the attendance sheets have been turned in for the class in question.
OSA Notary Policy Change
Effective July 1, 2013, the OSA notary services are limited to WUCL students and graduates for purposes of application to state bar examinations.
