The School of Law provides the following programs to support our students and help
them maximize their academic performance.
The Academic Success Program offers twice-weekly skills workshops designed to address
potential pitfalls faced by law students. Workshops include How to Succeed in Law
School, Reading and Notes, Time Management, Outlines, and Exam Writing. Toward the
end of the semester, students are given the opportunity to test their knowledge and
get over “law exam jitters” through simulated exams in several subjects.
Individual meetings are available for any student looking for personalized assistance.
Meetings are tailored to the student’s specific needs and requests, and are designed
to allow the student to develop an individualized study program. These meetings include
reviewing past exams, working through hypotheticals, assessing schedules and study
habits, and dealing with stress.
First Year Tutoring Program
Every first year law student is paired with a second or third year student tutor who
is chosen based on his or her academic success in a particular class and subject area.
Tutoring in each subject is offered once a week, and focuses on student questions
and answering hypotheticals.
For third year students and graduates, the Academic Success Program provides workshops and advice on how to study and pass the bar exam.
