Student Counseling Center

Law school can be profoundly difficult at times. In addition to the pressure and stress already present during this transitional period, the fast-paced and competitive environment of this particular field can make it more difficult to manage the many responsibilities of academics, family, social life, work, and other activities.

To help students find a balance among these responsibilities, perform optimally, and achieve their academic and career goals, The John Marshall Law School has partnered with Sankofa Psychological Services, LLC, to offer confidential counseling, support, and consultation.

Services for Students

The John Marshall Law School Counseling Center offers reduced-cost, confidential individual, group, and couples counseling to help students negotiate emotional and relational difficulties, as well as to provide support as they matriculate through their program at John Marshall. Additionally, counselors can provide outreach and educational programming for student organizations and academic departments.

While each clinician is unique in terms of his or her area(s) of expertise and style of counseling, all are skilled in a wide range of issues law students typically face. These include, but are not limited to, life transitions; coping with stress; academic concerns; issues with identity; relationship and familial struggles; mood-related difficulties; anxiety.
