Student Life

Most students at College of Law are working adults, balancing the demands of their jobs with those of their studies. Some of our students are also starting their own businesses, and many have young families. We understand the tremendous commitment you are making to further your education, and want to be there for you every step of the way.

Commencement

Commencement is a time-honored tradition that College of Law students look forward to from the first day of their matriculation. Each spring, graduating students make the transition from scholars to alumni.

Convocation

Convocation marks the end of the Fall Semester as well as the calendar year. Held each December, this event is an enjoyable way for the entire Irvine University community to socialize and acknowledge one another. Awards are given to outstanding students, faculty and staff; refreshments are served and prizes donated by local businesses are given away.

New Student Orientation

Upon matriculation, students are given a formal tour of the campus and introduced to key staff members. Academic requirements and expectations are reviewed. Students participate in workshops designed to help them succeed in their law degree program.
