Regardless of your career plans, success in law school is the foundation on which your future will be built. The academic support program is a collaborative effort among law school administrators, faculty and students to help you develop the critical skills necessary to become an effective law student, and, ultimately, a top flight lawyer.
One-on-one meetings: Individual meetings enable students to gain insights into their academic strengths and weaknesses as well as explore in confidence in a non-judgmental setting any other concerns that may be affecting learning. Schedule a meeting here.
Skills Workshops: Offered throughout the year, workshops offered during continuing orientation and throughout the year address such topics as briefing, note-taking, outlining, multiple-choice test taking, and exam essay writing. Additional topics pertaining to life as a law student are also offered.
Peer Support: the Law Scholar and Teaching Scholar Programs
If permitted by instructor, students can seek guidance in the writing process from the Legal Writing Center. Forty-five minute sessions focus on organization, research strategies, grammar, editing and consistency.
Feedback on Practice Exams
The Academic Support program can substantively critique written responses to practice problems exams offered in your classes or provided to you by this Office. An assessment of test preparation methods can also be done. Schedule a meeting here.
