Academic Success Program

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.
