The academic year for entering students officially begins with Orientation Week with a full schedule of seminars, classes, and discussions. The first sessions of Criminal Law and Legal Research and Writing will be held during this week. Orientation is scheduled to begin on Monday, August 12, 2024 for both day and evening division students.
