1:1 Academic TutoringOur team of experienced attorneys and educators work with students in a one-on-one or group setting to provide instruction on a variety of skills such as study skills, time management, critical case reading, case briefing, legal analysis, legal writing, outlining, and exam preparation. Tutors work with students both on campus and online, and tailor their teaching approach to each student’s individual needs. Our tutors are available and ready to assist students during the day, in the evening, and on the weekends.
Skills WorkshopsAcademic Excellence offers in-depth skills workshops online and on campus throughout the school year to help students with study skills, time management, case reading and briefing, legal analysis and writing, outlining, and exam preparation. On-demand workshops can be found in the Academic Support Resource Library.
All incoming students in the day and evening programs are assigned to Learning Communities. Learning Communities meet regularly and are designed to help students navigate the challenges of the first-year of law school. Students will work on developing and improving key academic skills including case reading, case briefing, legal analysis, outlining, exam taking, and substantive legal doctrines. Students will also work on developing other critical lawyering skills such as professionalism, time management, and stress management.
Learning Communities are led by high-achieving, upper-class students recommended by the faculty who work closely with the Office of Academic Excellence, faculty, Student Services, and the Office of Career and Professional Development to develop exercises designed to improve students’ academic and non-academic skills, and to help students succeed during their first year of law school.
