Life-long student, former interviewer of celebrities at red-carpet events, and lover of tropical destinations for vacations
After practicing law for several years, Rupa realized her favorite part of law firm life was working with the summer associates and helping make their experience at the firm the best it could be. That opportunity plus her love of education led her to a career in Student Services and higher education administration. As the Assistant Dean, Rupa oversees Student Health, which solely specializes in law student health, as well as a fantastic Student Services department that focuses on the overall student experience at UC Hastings. More specifically, Student Services focuses on both large academic programs (like Orientation and Commencement); ways to have a balanced/healthy life (like free daily yoga and weekly zumba), and individual and group resources and services (like academic planning, student leadership, and more). Make an appointment with Rupa to discuss any moral character application concerns regarding the CA bar exam, academic advising questions, grievance concerns, or just to let her know how your experience in law school is going.
