All incoming students 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, IRAC, and exam taking. 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 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.
