Student Life

The Ave Maria School of Law Community is comprised of people from across the country and beyond whose paths converge to pursue a common goal.  Each person contributes to and benefits from the experiences and perspectives of other members of the community.
By providing opportunities for interaction among students, Ave Maria ensures a vibrant, professional atmosphere and a constructive law school experience.  Beginning with Orientation, students are encouraged to participate in service, spiritual, and social activities.
