Whether you are a freshman, a recent alum, or have been out of school for years and are considering law as a second career, please contact me to discuss your plans. I look forward to meeting you.

How can I set up an appointment?

Generally it is most productive to schedule time so your concerns can receive the attention they deserve.

  • Walk ins ~ Monday & Thursday 10 a.m.-12 noon (regular walk-in period ends at 12 noon)
    To get priority during walk-ins, please let me know when are coming no less than 1 business day prior. Priority notice will be honored with 1 business day notice. Otherwise, walk-ins are first-come, first served.
  • Self Scheduling on SignUpGenius ~ Appts Tues/Fri afternoons 2:00 p.m - 5:30 p.m. (routine appointments end at 5:30)
    Set up your appointment anytime: Note that only "available" slots are visible. Students who are registered with the Pre-Law Program gain access to the self-scheduling link on SignUpGenius. The system can only recognize you if you register. The link to register with the Program is on the front page and every page of the pre-law website. It takes 10 business days for the system to "roll over" to recognize you.
  • All other times ~ Please send an e-mail with windows of availability for the next 5 business days (Ex: Tues 11-3; Wed 10:30-12; Fri 1-5).

It is never a problem to take a scheduled meeting on the phone. Many Hunter students juggle work, school, and family obligations. Please dial in at the appropriate time on the direct line: 212-772-4889.

Dean's Hours occur every week at Hunter from 1 p.m. - 3 p.m. on Wednesdays. Student programming runs at that time so there are no student appointments available on Wednesday afternoons from 12-4 as we are preparing for, hosting, and tidying up after events.


What if I have a quick question?

For a quick question, please:

1) Come by walk-in hours: 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m., Mondays & Thursdays, Room 712 East

2) Send a brief e-mail. For matters that are not urgent, please allow 24 hours for a reply. If your matter is time sensitive, please do include an "!" in your e-mail status.

3) Call on the direct line. If other students are here, your call will be returned as soon as possible. 212-772-4889
