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.

  • SELF SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT on Sign Up Genius at this LINKPlease do not schedule more than one pending appointment at a time. Only students who are registered with the program (see "Registration button" on the right) can use this system. T/F afternoons 2-4.
  • RESERVE A 15 MINUTE PRIORITY WALK IN by sending me an email letting me know when you plan to come. Only requests received by 3:00 p.m. on the business day before will receive priority. Walk in hours are otherwise first-come first- served. Walk-in hours end at noon. Monday/Thurday 10-12.
  • CALL THE SCHEDULING DESK at (212) 772-4882. Students who do not self schedule an appointment and who do not wish to come to walk in hours will need to contact the scheduling desk. T/F afternoons 4-5:30.


  • It is never a problem to take a scheduled meeting on the phone. 
  • It is never a problem to set up an alternative time if you run into wrinkles with the scheduler -- please email weekly availability, specifying a few windows and noting times - for example "Wednesdays and Fridays 10-12" to 
    • Please note that since programming runs during Wednesday Dean's Hours, that time is not available for appointments.
    • Time that conflicts with the teaching schedule on late M/Th afternoons is also not available for appointments.

PHONING IN: For students and alumni who may have difficulty making it to campus during regular business hours - due to work or other obligations - it is never a problem to hold a scheduled meeting on the phone. At the appropriate time, please phone in on the direct line (212) 772-4889. When you make the appointment, please let the scheduler know/make a note that you will be phoning in.

TROUBLESHOOTING: If at any time you have difficulty scheduling a meeting when speaking with the appointment desk, please send an e-mail directly (including your availability for the next 5 business days). For time sensitive matters, please do include an "!" in your e-mail status.
