    A collection of practical information about the UW Law School. It is intended to provide you with the answers to some common questions, and some guidance about how to find answers to the less common ones.
  • Law School Rules
    Rules on admission, grading, courses, attendance, withdrawals, exams, etc.
  • Student Bar Association 1L Guide

    NOTE: Due to a recent Malware issue, the SBA is currently rebuilding their Outline Bank. Once it is rebuilt, the library will link to the updated site. We apologize for the inconvenience.
  • Admitted Student Guide
    Guide to the student experience, academics, and life in Madison.
