At Cardozo, our mission is to create a living and learning environment second to none among law schools, affording you the opportunity to grow personally and professionally and to enjoy these very important and exciting years. We know life doesn't stop just because you are in law school. The Office of Student Services strives to create an inclusive environment so students can seek support within a wide range locations throughout the school including: The Office of Diversity and Inclusion; The Office of Academic Support; and the Office of The Dean of Students.
Counseling and Advising
We can help you manage the personal pressures of law school as well as outside challenges that are compromising your ability to function. Such factors can include, but are not limited to, emotional distress, academic difficulties, family problems, physical illness, substance abuse, and sexual assault or harassment. If you experience difficulties in or out of law school, or need special support services, you are strongly encouraged to meet with a member of the Office of Student Services to discuss your situation. For problems that cannot be handled within the Office of Student Services, referrals to other resources are available.
