J.D. Orientation

Getting Ready for Orientation

Orientation dates for this year’s incoming class are Thursday, August 24 – Tuesday, August 29, 2017. The first day of 1L classes is Wednesday, August 30. You should plan ample time to move and get settled (you will have some time during the weekend of August 26-27). Orientation is mandatory, and your weekday schedule will be robust during this time. DOS will post a general orientation schedule in early August and you will receive your section assignment in early to mid-August.

Orientation is planned and executed through the HLS Dean of Students Office. For more information on J.D. Orientation, please contact DOS at 617.495.1880 or dos@law.harvard.edu.
