From the moment you arrive on campus for Orientation to the moment you walk across the stage at Commencement, the Office of the Dean for Students is here to support you.
Our office oversees student life and well-being at the Law School. We offer academic advising and personal counseling, provide support for students with disabilities, and develop programs that complement the law school curriculum and enrich the student experience both in and beyond the classroom. We are here to help you thrive at the Law School and to manage any concern, conflict, or wellness challenge you may encounter during your time here.
The Office of the Dean for Students maintains connections with other resources on campus, including the Office of Residence Life, Center for Counseling and Consultation, Disability Services and the Title IX Office. We focus on issues affecting the student community and act as the primary liaison between students, faculty, the administration, and the main University. To achieve this, we host a number of student-focused events from wellness programs to presentations on academics or the bar exam. Additionally, we coordinate a robust peer-mentorship program geared to help you build community and connect to others during your time here.
We encourage all students to seek out and create opportunities to enhance their learning in and outside the classroom. Explore our healthy living programs through the Health and Wellness Office, attend workshops and trainings planned by the Office of Equity and Inclusion, or get involved in one of our many Student Organizations or our Public Interest Law Center.
We foster and open door policy and encourage students to visit our office to ask questions or share concerns affecting the Law School community. Please also feel free to contact us via phone or email:

You can create your own career path by taking advantage of the Law School's resources. Since not all law students know what type of law they want to practice, we provide many opportunities for you to explore and identify your particular interests in the law.
Need any extra support coping with a personal or emotional issue? Our staff is here to help.
Our goal is to aid students with permanent and temporary disabilities in gaining access to the educational possibilities at St. John’s University.

The School of Law is located in a quiet, safe, inexpensive and suburban neighborhood in Queens, about 12 miles from Manhattan. St. John’s understands that many incoming students will need to relocate to the area, and we would like to provide you with the information to make this transition as smoothly as possible.
Campus Ministry welcomes students of all religious traditions, while at the same time encouraging our Catholic students to deepen their Catholic identity and to become active participants.
