Where is AskUs Located?
The team is on “The Bricks” (Miami Law’s central courtyard) all year to answer students’ questions about Miami Law. ASK US FIRST! If a team member is unable to answer a question, he or she will link students with the proper group or department. When not on The Bricks or in the Student Lounge, students will find the AskUs team in A212A.
