New Student Orientation

Orientation is an important opportunity for you to be introduced to an inclusive learning environment, construct the academic foundations for success, and to understand the values and traditions of Seattle U Law. There are three phases to Orientation. The first two will take place in mid-June for Summer Start students, with both online and live presentations that will provide opportunities for students to apply legal principles to a hypothetical client's dilemma. Library staff will also distribute passwords for the three online legal databases used by students, and representatives from both LexisNexis and Westlaw will briefly introduce their products.

The third phase occurs in August and is designed for both summer and fall students. This phase will give students the opportunity to engage with what it means to enter the legal profession and to learn more about classroom expectations. 

Detailed information about the Orientation program will be sent to Summer Start students in early June. August Orientation information will be distributed in July.

All Summer Start students will receive a Registration Packet, including important enrollment information, required textbooks, and more in late May. Students may register for the appropriate section of Criminal Law and confirm their summer registration through the Law School Registrar. Instructions for summer registration will be sent by the Registrar in late May.
