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 oversee registration for law courses, administering examinations, and Commencement in the spring.

Note: The first day of class (August 21, 2017) has been canceled due to likely disruptions from the viewing of the total solar eclipse taking place that morning. Salem is in the direct path of the total solar eclipse and will draw many visitors as the first capital city in the path of totality. The eclipse will begin around 9:00 a.m. with "totality" taking place around 10:15 a.m. and lasting approximately two minutes. The eclipse will end around 11:30 a.m. Classes will resume the next day on Tuesday, August 22nd.
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.
