Orientation Welcome Information Packet and Preliminary Orientation Schedules
All entering Marquette University Law School students are required to participate in the Orientation program.  The Law School emailed an Orientation packet to entering, first-year students in late June with links to a variety of documents and important information.  Please click the links below to review the materials sent.

Academic Information Packet
In early August, the Law School emailed academic information to all entering, first-year law students.  That information included the academic calendar, fall exam schedule, and details on how to obtain required textbooks and first-day assignments, as well as confirmation that entering students will have read the Law School’s 2015-2016 Academic Regulations.  Links to the same information are below. 

Two of the links below are located on “secure” pages of the Law School website; you must already be logged in to the website before clicking on those links.  Beginning August 1, entering students can log in to the website with the same username and password that is used to access CheckMarq and eMarq accounts.  The sign in box is located in the upper right-hand corner of this page.
