The Academic Success Program is one of your most valuable resources from the time you begin law school to the time you sit for the bar exam.
In your first year, our advisors offer guides and skills workshops on adjusting to the new style of learning and writing demanded by the study of law. The skills workshops help you master the fundamental techniques and habits essential for law school achievement. Individual skills development, academic counseling and legal writing assistance are also available.
When you’re an upper-level student, our offerings help you develop and refine analytical and writing skills that are vital for continued success in law school, on the bar exam and in professional practice. And, of course, our advisors are always available for one-on-one training.
In your first year, we provide you with essential tools for law school. In the Introduction to Law course, which starts during Orientation, and our 1L Skills Workshops, you will learn the fundamentals needed for law school success.
In your second year, we offer programs that help you develop and refine the skills you learned in your first year. We also introduce a series of key initiatives meant to begin your bar exam preparation.
Post Graduation Support
Our academic support continues even after you graduate law school. We are here to ensure you are prepared to pass the Bar exam.
P.A.S.S. (Practice, Assess, Simulate, Succeed) Workshop
Our summer P.A.S.S. Workshop supplements your commercial bar prep course, giving you practice and feedback on essay writing and the Multistate Performance Test (MPT), as well as MBE practice.
We also provide students with an opportunity to participate in the MBE Workshop, which includes a simulated MBE Exam as well as a follow-up review lecture.
Members of the Academic Success team are also available to meet with you one-on-one during this study period.
