Photo of Ilana Ben-Ze've talking with studentsThe staff of the Dean of Students Office is available to help you navigate your law school years. We assist with a wide range of issues affecting students: academic, personal or professional. When you are unsure how best to solve a problem, we are here to provide support. If we can't help, we'll direct you to the appropriate resource.

Visit us in Suite 1255 on the first floor of the Law School with questions about academic program planning, Americans with Disabilities Act accommodations, bar exam/Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam informationcampus security, concurrent degree options, degree requirements, exam schedule variances, health insurance, housing, parking and scholarships.

Our Academic Success program and Bar Exam Preparation programs are housed in the Dean of Students Office. Personal assistance and counseling are available on a walk-in and appointment basis.

If you haven't stopped in to meet Ilana Ben Ze'ev, assistant dean of students, and Sarah Garrison, director of academic success and bar preparation, come in soon. Walk-ins are welcome, and having a problem isn't a requirement. We encourage purely social visits.

The Dean of Students Office, Suite 1255, is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays. Appointments earlier and later than those hours can be scheduled. Contact us at (313) 577-3997 or lawdso@wayne.edu.

Visiting students, study abroad

Students who plan on visiting another law school or participating in a study abroad program sponsored by another American Bar Association-approved law school must obtain a Status Letter from the Dean of Students Office.

"The Dean of Students Office is always open to students for anything and everything. I go in often, maybe just to grab a cup of coffee or candy, to say hello or to ask for advice."
