Where can I replace a lost, stolen, or damaged UIC i-Card?
Law School Campus Safety & Security are no longer responsible for printing the UIC i-Card’s on campus. If your UIC i-Card is stolen, damaged, or lost, it can be replaced at the UIC i-Card Center at 750 S. Halsted Street, Chicago, IL. A standard $20.00 replacement fee will apply for all students, staff, and faculty.
Is there a lost and found at the Law School?
Lost and found areas are located at either building entrance. The library circulation desk also has a lost and found for items recovered in the library.
What should I do if I notice a student who is disturbed or disturbing to others, but he/she hasn’t broken any rules?
The Office of Student Life and Leadership would like to remind you about the Student Support & Emergency Team (SSET), an important resource at the Law School that is available to all students.
Established by the Law School in 2017, SSET is a standing group of administrators and faculty members who assist law students experiencing a variety of personal and institutional stressors, including academic concerns, personal and relationship challenges, financial difficulties, and medical and mental health situations. SSET provides referred students with appropriate responses and resources that are timely, effective, and non-intrusive.
Students, faculty, and staff can refer issues and emergencies directly to any SSET member, listed below. Importantly, all reports are made in confidence.
The SSET Team consists of:
- Assistant Dean for Student Life & Leadership (Chair)
- Assistant Director of the Academic Achievement Program
- Academic Advising Coordinator
- Vice Dean for Academic Affairs
- Director of the Career Services Offices
- Assistant Dean for Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
- Director of the Financial Aid Office
- Law School Registrar
- Director of Student Activities & Leadership Development
- One faculty representative
- Director of the Law School Counseling Center (this clinician is a consultant to SSET; the Counseling Center does not share information about its clients with the Law School without client permission)
If SSET learns that you may need support, we will discuss your situation discreetly within SSET to identify helpful resources and applicable policies. A member of SSET will then reach out to you to share information or ask about other ways that the school may be able to assist you. If there are matters we can’t handle ourselves, we may discuss your case with the Dean of Students at UIC for additional resources and support. If we reach out, please respond. When we can’t locate a student and don’t hear back, we sometimes need to escalate our outreach to include local law enforcement to ensure that you are safe.
Faculty and staff at the Law School recognize that law students face many challenges, both inside and outside the classroom. SSET is part of our continued commitment to your success, safety, and wellbeing as a student at UIC Law.
