Congratulations on your acceptance to Whittier Law School. From your first day of law school and all during your professional life, the entire Whittier community has the responsibility and the privilege to educate and guide you as you mature into, and ultimately become, a legal professional. That guidance begins during Orientation, which begins August 12.
Orientation provides you with important information on how to make a successful transition to law school. Faculty and staff will introduce you to campus policies, procedures and facilities and will teach you how to prepare for class. They also will introduce you to study habits that will help you manage the demands of law school. Very importantly, we will begin to expose you to the ethical dimensions of law practice.
Orientation also gives you the opportunity to meet your classmates who will become your fellow travelers on your professional journey and your life-long personal friends. But most of all, Orientation gives all of us at Whittier Law School the opportunity to welcome you into our community and to celebrate your decision to become a legal professional. We are delighted to have you join us.
I look forward to meeting you in August. And, once again, a warm welcome to Whittier Law School.
Vice President and Dean
