Your Student ID Card, called a Cane Card, is used for many purposes around the law school and campus such as checking out library books, and gaining entrance to the Wellness Center. You will also receive student discounts at local vendors by showing your Cane Card.
You can receive your Cane Card during Orientation. Additional details will be provided during the summer.
The University requires that all students have health insurance while in law school.
There are two important steps to note:
1. . Should you already have adequate alternative coverage, you must waive the University sponsored health insurance plan by logging on to CaneLink (formerly myUM). Student Health Services has extended the insurance waiver deadline for incoming Law students through to September 1st. For any questions or concerns regarding this matter, students should contact Student Health Services directly at (305) 284-9100.
2. All students must submit an immunization form by August 22 to Student Health Services. Failure to comply with these immunization requirements prior to the beginning of your first semester will interfere with registration and a $50.00 late processing fee will be charged for any form received after the start of the semester.
Upon completion, return the form to:
