College of Law faculty members actively mentor and advise students,
both formally and informally. Beginning spring 2015, all first-year students will be paired with a faculty advisor, as part of our First-Year Advising Program. The faculty advisor is a point of contact for students
who are seeking advice on course selection and other academic matters.
The College of Law offers various pathways for
specialization. Students who are interested in focusing their studies in
a particular area of law can consult faculty program advisors in the
various areas of concentration. Students have the opportunity to pursue a variety of
certificates and joint degrees while
at DePaul, including a joint JD/LLM.
Students seeking additional support in their studies, beyond
guidance about choosing courses or areas of concentration, can take advantage
of our Academic Support Program. DePaul also provides preparation
and support for students preparing for the bar exam through our Bar Passage Program.
