Welcome to Student Support Services

Windsor Law's commitment to student success begins before you even submit an application. The Student Services Office is your point of contact for questions about Windsor Law's admission requirements and process, tours of the law school, academic programs, student life, and financing your legal education.

Academic Assistance

The Student Services Office's staff offers individual academic counseling for course selection, navigating dual-degree requirements and finding academic assistance for difficult subjects.

They also assist students with non-academic issues that may be impeding their success. If the issue is beyond their expertise, the staff can refer you to other campus resources including the University of Windsor Student Counselling Centre.

Financial Assistance

If you are struggling to meet your financial obligations while pursuing your Windsor Law degree, we encourage you to meet with one of the Student Service's staff members for individualized indebtedness counseling. We do not want financial problems to stand in the way of your education. Assistant Dean Francine Herlehy oversees the distribution of awards and scholarships, the Windsor Law Alumni Fund for the Enhancement of Student Life, and the Emergency Loan Program.

An Emergency Loan Program is available to assist students who find themselves in financial difficulty. This short-term assistance can help with emergency expenses. The application process is confidential. Emergency loans are generally interest-free and repayment terms are negotiable. In the event of default of the repayment terms, interest will be calculated from the date of default.

The Application for an Emergency Loan is processed within 24 hours and if approved, the funds will typically be available immediately.  Paper copies of the Application for Funding are available in the Student Services Office.

The Windsor Law Alumni Fund for the Enhancement of Student Life provides financial support to our students to support their participation in activities that will enhance their legal education. Funding is available to support attendance at various legal or law-related conferences and to bring speakers to the law school to host events.  Funding is available for individual students or groups.

The Application for Funding should be submitted at least one week prior to the activity or event.  Paper copies of the Application for Funding are available in the Student Services Office.

Save proof of registration and attendance as well as all original receipts as they are required by the University's Finance department and should be submitted to the Student Services Office upon your return.
