Debt Management and Financial Planning

Promoting financial planning has been a primary mission of the School of Law Office of Student Financial Services since we opened our doors in 2009. Our financial planning program promotes and encourages the study of financial education and facilitates credit analysis and budgeting skills to promote good money management.

The School of Law Office of Student Financial Services holds workshops every semester for law students wishing to learn more about credit, budgeting, and investing.

The workshops help students with planning and sticking to a monthly budget, smart spending, using credit wisely, managing education debt, and avoiding pilling on more debt. The workshops will teach students the elements of personal finance.

Workshops are presented by either Student Financial Services staff or by experts in the field. Law students are highly encouraged to attend these upcoming workshops.
