Who to Contact in the Law Office
As a student in Law, you should familiarise yourself with the School of Law itself, ensuring that you locate and check regularly your relevant year pigeon hole and notice board. A number of other notice boards which you should also find useful are located in the School and updated regularly, such as the Careers Board.
Please ensure that you:
- check your Keele email account regularly as this provides the School with one of the main means of contacting you over a variety of urgent or interesting academic, pastoral and administrative matters; and
- update your contact details through eVision should they change.
In addition to the information provided on notice boards and in correspondence, a dedicated team of support staff are on hand to advise students and to ensure the smooth administration of the School of Law at Keele.
