Meet Annamaria Nields, Director of Student Academic Affairs


As they began their studies in August, new and returning students had the opportunity to meet a number of new staff members. One of them is Annamaria Nields, who joined the Mason Law staff in August 2006 as Director of Student Academic Affairs, a new position created to provide students with additional support in a wide variety of academic areas and to foster the sharing of information between members of the student body and the law school's administration.

A graduate of Colgate University, Ms. Nields is no stranger to Mason Law, having received her JD from the law school in 2000. While studying at the law school, Ms. Nields was active in student affairs, serving as Vice Justice of the Moot Court Board and a Dean's Scholar.

Prior to joining Mason's staff, Ms. Nields practiced labor and employment law at Seyfarth Shaw LLP in Washington, DC, from 2003 to 2006 and at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer and Feld, LLP, from 2000 to 2003. She is a member of the Virginia and DC Bars.

Ms. Nields' services include advice on course selection; assistance with changes in status, leaves of absence, and withdrawal from courses; and help with most other issues that pertain to academic life at Mason Law. Her office is part of  Career, Academic and Alumni Services (CAAS) in Room 370 (formerly Career Development and Alumni Services). Students are encouraged to call, email or stop by to see Ms. Nields as the need arises. Her contact information appears below.
