The University of New Mexico School of Law’s Career and Student Services Office (CSSO) is dedicated to helping all law students reach their full academic potential. CSSO’s academic support services are available to all first, second and third year students as well as recent graduates taking the bar exam.
Students may receive academic support services through self referral, through professor referral or by virtue of being on academic probation. Academic support means providing individualized assistance to students in order to help them achieve their academic goals.
Individual academic advising is available to all students through the CSSO staff and through working one on one with a faculty member.
CSSO’s academic support programs are free and open to all. They are offered throughout each semester. Check the law school events calendar to see the schedule of classes or drop by the CSSO office for a flier. Topics may include:
All first year doctrinal courses have an upper division student tutor. Students are encouraged to attend tutor sessions and individual carrel hours with tutors.
Students on academic probation may be assigned an individual tutor to work with during the semester. CSSO staff will assign tutors.

Students on probation or suspension are required to attend a summer program immediately prior to the start of the fall semester. Students are advised individually and may be assigned a faculty advisor. In addition, there are various academic success workshops throughout the semester.
All students are encouraged and welcome to participate in academic support activities and programs.
The CSSO office library contains a small collection of commercial study aids. The Law Library also has a collection of these materials available for check out.
