Congratulations on your admittance to Saint Louis University School of Law. As a future law student, your journey starts here. The admissions office collaborates with other departments in the law school and university to offer resources that will make getting to your first day in Scott Hall as streamlined as possible.
All incoming students will be registered by the School of Law for their fall classes in mid-July. Once you are registered, you will be able to see your class schedule via your mySLU account.
There are many resources to assist you in financing your legal education, including scholarships, loans and work opportunities. As an admitted student, it is highly recommended that you meet with the SLU LAW Office of Financial Aid to plan for your legal education.
Academic Support Resources
The faculty members of the Academic Resource Center are available to discuss academic strategies to make the most of your legal education and bar exam experience.
The Office of Student Services provides support to all SLU LAW students from orientation through registration, exams and graduation. Disability Services and the Office of Inclusion and Diversity Education are available to assist you as needed.

Orientation Dates and Preview
Orientation will take place Monday, Aug. 12, through Thursday, Aug. 15.
We will have many events throughout the year where family and friends are welcome to attend; however, orientation events are designed for law students only.
Each year as part of Orientation, SLU LAW hosts a Community & Mission Workshop. As part of this workshop, we ask you to read a book before Orientation so that we may share a community-building experience with you as you begin your law school education. This book will serve as a foundation for a lively discussion on issues of diversity, inclusion, intercultural competence in the legal profession, and our Jesuit mission.
This year's book selection is Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion by Gregory Boyle, S.J.
Please read Tattoos on the Heart by Wednesday, August 14, which is the date of the Community & Mission Workshop. You will receive more information on Orientation in the coming weeks.
