The Office of Student Affairs (OSA) is here to assist you with advice and counseling. We act as a liaison between students, faculty and law school administrators. When you have questions, our office is the place to find answers.
We oversee orientation, academic success, accommodations for disabilities, changes in divisions, leaves of absence, character and fitness amendments, emergency exam deferrals, Title IX concerns, and other concerns students bring us. The Director of Bar Programs is also located in the OSA.
We are open from 9 am to 5 pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Fridays. On Wednesday we are open from 9 am until 6:30 pm. Stop by to visit us in Room 250 in the Main Law Building!

Delaware Law seeks to create an inclusive, equitable, culturally competent, and supportive environment where students, faculty and staff model behavior that enriches our community. We encourage all students, faculty, staff and guests on campus to interact in a manner of human respect at all times. But we are also aware that incidents of bias and hate crimes have increased on college campuses around the country, disrupting that sense of community. Widener University and the Delaware Law School condemn such acts and encourage all members of our community to do the same. To review the law school’s protocol on bias and hate crime reporting, please click here.
