UW Law is operating remotely until we resume normal operations, pending public health guidance.

Until then, here’s how you can access UW Law services and departments:

STUDENT SUPPORT

Dean for Students

Contact the Associate Dean for Students, Anna Endter, for matters related to student life at UW Law, including emergency support and academic, personal and administrative issues. You can reach Dean Endter at aendter@uw.edu. You may also schedule an appointment to meet with Dean Endter by phone or Zoom.

Dean for Academic Success

Contact the Assistant Dean for Academic Success Programs, Jessica West, for matters related to academic counseling. You can schedule an appointment by emailing jwest2@uw.edu. Drop-in hours will be held remotely. Email Dean West for more information.

Academic Services

Academic Services, the law school Registrar's Office, offers law students academic assistance, coordinates registration, posts grades, administers exams, and much more. The office will continue to be open for drop-ins by students. Staff also may be reached by phone at 206.542.0453 or by email at mylaw@uw.edu.

Student and Career Services

SCS will offer coaching and mock interview appointments online or by phone. Students should schedule appointments as usual through SCSOnline, and the office will email you a meeting link.

SCS will also continue to offer drop in hours but they'll be hosted online. The SCSOnline log in screen will feature the latest drop in hour meeting links. The system will add you to a queue once you join the meeting, and a coach will meet with students one at a time in the order in which they join.

All of SCS online resources remain available and students can continue to reach the office during normal business hours via email at lawpath@uw.edu or by phone at 206.543.9097.


LAW LIBRARY

The Gallagher Law Library has joined other UW libraries in offering remote services only. We are no longer able to offer in-person services to UW Law faculty staff, students, or the public.

The library team is providing electronic course reserve options through individual course Canvas pages at the request of the instructor.

Here’s how the public can access the library until normal operations resume:

Borrowing and returning print materials

We donot have access to any of the physical collection, including journals, books, and media, and will not be able to fulfill requests for these materials.

  • Returning items: all book returns are currently closed. Please keep all items until we reopen. If you are unable to keep items, please emailsuzzcirc@uw.edu.
  • Renew books online: see Libraries Remote Resources and Service for instructions on how to renew online.
  • Fines: fines accrued during this time will be reviewed and adjusted upon reopening.
  • Due dates: will be extended when possible while services are limited.
