APW is designed to ease your transition to law school by giving you an overview of the first-year experience and your professors’ expectations. You will also have an opportunity to meet your classmates and become familiar with the lay of the land before classes begin. We will introduce you to the key skills needed to succeed in law school such as critical reading, case briefing, legal analysis, and exam writing. While this program is not for credit, it is a valuable academic program and a great opportunity to start building key skills and a learning community.
APW will take place August 9–11, 5–9 pm each day.
You will use the same credentials you used to pay your deposit to register for APW. Registration instructions can be found here.
Students need to bring their laptop, a notebook, and a writing utensil to class. No books are required.
Registration is open! Register by August 1st!
