Office for Student Services

The Office for Student Services enhances students’ experiences at Penn State Law. We help students take advantage of the opportunities available at Penn State and navigate academic, personal, or health challenges that may arise as they pursue their legal education. We are deeply committed to encouraging a sense of community that welcomes, celebrates, and promotes diversity among all of our members. We offer counseling and advice on both academic and personal matters, ranging from course selection and the bar exam to health matters and family emergencies and can also point students to University-wide resources. Student Services acts as a liaison for law students with the faculty and administration and advocates for students and student organizations. We work with Student Disability Resources to coordinate accommodations for students with disabilities and we maintain connections with other resources on campus, including Student Affairs and Student Activities and Educational Equity. 

Student Services should be the first stop for all students, the place to go when you need answers, help, suggestions, and support.
