Legal Studies Advising

If you are interested in or would like information about our Legal Studies program at San José State University, please meet with an advisor by making an appointment.

Legal Studies Coordinator

Edith Kinney,Ph.D.

Dr. Kinney will be happy to consult with students about programs and personal goals. However, any department advisor can process change of minor and/or graduation paperwork.

If meeting an adviosr to process university paperwork,please bring the following to your advising session or you will not be seen by an advisor:

  • Appropriate forms (change of major/minor, minor contract, substitution form, etc.)
  • All college transcripts (this is especially important if you are a transfer student since we cannot view your records from the Registrar’s Office. It takes the Registrar at least 2 semesters to input the data into MySJSU.)
  • Additional paperwork that needs to be attached to University petitions (i.e. transcripts, statement of purpose, doctor’s notes, etc.)
