The academic support program is designed to provide students with expertise in building the skills necessary for a successful law student and a young lawyer, particularly as it relates to legal analysis and learning. The program organizes skill workshops for ILs students, and provides one-on-one assistance for any law student who want additional training in skill areas. The program also works with 3L students as they prepare for the bar by offering courses designed to enhance the type of problem solving necessary for the bar, and offering workshops during the bar preparation period on various substantive areas of law.
