Class of 2020
Welcome to the Faulkner Law Class of 2020
In order to finalize your spot in the Class of 2020, you must complete online registration for classes. For new Faulkner Law students, online registration will be available July 17-19. You will be receiving detailed information from the Admissions Office that is essential for you to have before you will be able to register.
As you begin your law school career, the Law School hosts two programs, Mini Prep and New Student Orientation, to assist law students in their transition from an undergraduate academic environment to the unparalleled academic rigors of law school. Although Mini Prep is an optional program, we strongly recommend that you attend. New Student Orientation is mandatory.
MiniPrep is an innovative program that provides incoming students with a skills-based, interactive, and immersive academic experience highlighting the most important skills and expectations for first year students. This optional free program is open to all members of the Class of 2020. We highly encourage incoming law students to attend. If you plan to attend MiniPrep 2017, you must sign up using the link below.
MiniPrep 2017 will be held on August 9 – 11, 2017 at the law school.
Dress for MiniPrep is business casual (i.e. long pants and polo shirt for men, dress/skirt/pants for women). Please no hats, tank tops, t-shirts, shorts, leggings, or flip flops.
