On August 18th the CUA Law community welcomed the new Full-time, Part-time, M.L.S., and LL.M. students to the Law School. The students arrived for the start of a three-day orientation that was designed to make the transition to the life of a law student as smooth as possible.

The administration, faculty, and staff embraced the incoming first-year class, working hard to make sure that every student felt welcomed, comfortable, and oriented to their new surroundings. Upon their arrival, the future lawyers checked in and were greeted with an introduction to the Law School by Dean Daniel F. Attridge and then took part in a welcome luncheon, which provided an ideal occasion for students to get to know some of the people they will spend a great deal of time with over the next three or four years. 

The rest of their introductory day was spent on more routine but necessary matters. Students were introduced to support services such as the Academic Affairs Office and the Counseling Center. They waited patiently in lines to get through the required paperwork, such as obtaining IDs and health insurance, having their official photo taken, and learning how to configure their personal computers for new educational purposes.

The smaller evening division class was treated to a majority of the same elements of orientation, condensed to accommodate their schedules.
