​Student Life

USD School of Law offers many resources both on and off campus to ensure that your law school experience is the best it can be.

There is a strong emphasis at USD Law on building important relationships and community. While you are a student here, be sure to take advantage of the many opportunities that are offered. Become a member in one of our student organizations, journals, or advocacy teams. Read our weekly Sidebar email for information about events taking place at the School of Law and the larger university. Take a study break and walk around the beautiful campus. Stay active and join the Grad/Law intramural softball team. Whatever your interest or professional goal might be, USD has an outlet for it.

If you are looking for ways to get involved in the USD law community, please visit the Office for Law Student Affairs (Warren Hall Room 218) for advice and encouragement.
