You may pre-order your textbooks online from the Saint Louis University Bookstore. Use "LAW" when selecting Department. Please note that your credit card will not be charged until book orders are packaged, on or around August 1.

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.

Summer Reading

During Orientation, SLU LAW hosts an annual Community and Mission Workshop where the incoming class explores issues of diversity, inclusion and intercultural competence alongside the unique tenets of a Jesuit law school and the mission of SLU LAW. As part of our Jesuit tradition, Saint Louis University remains faithful to the value of promoting justice and the dignity of all human beings.

For each workshop, we select a book that highlights these issues and serves as a foundation for a lively discussion among the participants. We ask all incoming 1Ls to participate in this shared reading experience.

Please stay tuned for the announcement of the 2019 Summer Reading book.
