What is the Dean for Students Office?

Boston College Law School encourages students to develop law-related interests outside as well as inside the classroom. The Dean for Students Office helps facilitate those interests by providing a variety of services, support and information to students. We like to think of ourselves as the liaison between students and the administration of BC Law.

Under the direction of the Associate Dean for Academic, Career and Student Services Maris Abbene, the office is responsible for a variety of projects including, but not limited to: academic advising, counseling, student organization event planning, and arranging special accommodations for students with disabilities. The Dean for Students Office also helps coordinate orientation, graduation, the faculty advisor program, and the academic support program.

The office can be reached at 617-552-4342.
