Part of McGeorge's hands-on approach to the law school experience includes regular academic guidance to help you identify your goals, access useful resources, and design an academic plan that will prepare you to meet your objectives.

Academic Advising Appointments

An academic advising counselor is available to meet with students throughout the year. McGeorge Academic Planning Appointments — or MAP Appointments as we call them — may be scheduled at any time by contacting the Office of Student Affairs by email or at 916.739.7089.

Faculty Advising

Faculty members are accessible to assist you in designing your academic program. Professors serve as directors for each of our Certificates of Concentration and in addition, are specialists in their areas of scholarship and prior legal practice.

Student Handbook

In addition to one-on-one meetings, the Office of Student Affairs also annually publishes a student handbook which is a comprehensive reference guide for students. There you will find detailed information about graduation requirements, academic policies, program descriptions, and more. First-year students receive the Student Handbook during Orientation. Please refer to this document as questions arise.
