UW Law School Orientation

Welcome to the University of Wisconsin Law School!

Orientation is designed to introduce you to our institution, law school culture, and legal education. With a focus on academic preparation, you will learn how to be an active and engaged member of the UW Law School community.

As a reminder, you will need to prepare for your Mock Class session on Friday, August 28 by reading the case assigned to your small group. 

Finally, during the week of August 17, Loryn Limoges, the Law School's Lexis/Nexis Academic Account Executive, will email all incoming students about activating their Lexis passwords.  She will also provide instructions for enrolling in web courses.
