Parenting & Caregiver Resources for Students Heading link

Pregnant and parenting students can find information and resources to aide them in their law school journey, including a lactation room. Additionally, the Office of Student Life hosts informal meet and greets for students who are also caregivers. It can be stressful and overwhelming to care for others while maintaining our own busy lives, even when we love deeply those we’re caring for.

Whether you a parent yourself, or caring for an aging parent, an ill spouse, a friend with mental health challenges, or anyone else who needs your care and compassion, there are resources available to assist!
