Welcomer Programs

Upperclass students volunteer to welcome all incoming 1L students during first-year registration and orientation in late August. The Welcomers are there to answer questions and help orient new students to Boston University School of Law. Welcomers also give tours of the law school, serve on panels related to class preparation, professors, study techniques, etc., and organize and/or participate in the optional service day.

Some Welcomers also participate in Be Yourself Orientation is for first-year students of color, LGBTQ students, and those students interested in diversity in the law school and legal profession. Any questions on Be Yourself may be directed to Brenda Hernandez.
