First Week

First Week

Your experience here begins with First Week, the kick-off to our Bowen Student Success Program. Our entering student program is unlike anything you experienced in your undergraduate days or in another graduate program.  It is your first law school class, your first introduction to law school culture and the first step in your legal career. First Week is where truly become part of the Bowen community. Attendance is mandatory for all incoming students.

During First Week, you will attend your first class of the semester with one of your professors. You will receive training on expert learning skills for law students, meet with your student success team (SST) and get to know your assigned Dean’s Fellows. You will also have an opportunity to complete administrative matters associated with your matriculation to UA Little Rock.

After completing First Week, you will be well on your way towards a successful first-year experience. If you have any questions about First Week, feel free to contact the Office of Student Affairs.

Welcome to your first year of law school
