Orientation and the Fall Semester
Convocation and Orientation – Begins mid-August
Monday, August 12, 2019
An introduction to St. John’s University, a convocation event, a chance to interact with faculty for lunch or other fun activities, an opportunity to volunteer in the community around St. John’s, and time to meet your new classmates. There will be orientation events during the first two weeks of the Fall semester.
All students are required to attend convocation and all orientation sessions pertaining to their respective programs.
Introduction to Law (August 12 - August 23)
This course is a St. John’s exclusive and reflects our belief that we want every student to succeed. All 1Ls take this ungraded two week course prior to the start of their first semester classes. It includes instruction on how to read and brief cases to give new students a footing to traverse the unfamiliar ground of legal education, including case analysis and statutory analysis. The introductory course also presents the fundamentals of legal writing.
Fall Semester Classes (Begins August 26)
First year students will be assigned classes and you will receive your Fall class schedule in July along with convocation and orientation information.
