Student Handbook

Welcome to Washington University School of Law. This handbook contains information about a number of important aspects of life in the law school community, including many of the rules and regulations that you are required to observe. All students are responsible for being familiar with its contents.

The handbook is one of several sources of information of vital importance to all students. Other sources include: (1) your law school (Outlook) e-mail account; (2) your student mail folder; (3) the screen outside of Room 303; (4) notices posted outside classrooms throughout the law school; and (5) for class assignments, the law school website, click on Course Information.  Students are also expected to check these other sources on a regular basis.
