Message from the Assistant Dean for Enrollment & Scholarships

Congratulations on your admission to St. Thomas University School of Law! On behalf of the entire St. Thomas University Community, I would like to welcome you to St. Thomas University School of Law. The next three years will be filled with exciting challenges and many opportunities as you learn the law.

All admitted students are assigned to one section and pre-registered for first year classes. Each section is broken down into smaller subsections for the Research and Writing Classes. Sometime over the course of the summer you will be sent your section designation via e-mail.

The Orientation Webpage provides all pertinent information on the fall semester schedule and the fall examination schedule. Please refer to the Orientation Webpage to determine your section's schedule. Your section's schedule will indicate when your classes meet and your final exam schedule for the fall term. Before classes begin this fall, the webpage will be updated to provide the necessary information regarding the required casebooks and your first class assignment for each of your classes.

You can purchase your books in advance if you desire from a number of sources. Books are also available on campus at the University Book Store.

I, together with Jiovanna Bryant, our Director for Admissions, Lisa Lucena, our Associate Director for Admissions, and the entire Admissions staff, look forward to seeing you at Orientation on August 13th - 15th. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Office of Admissions at 305-623-2310 or

I look forward to meeting you this fall.
