Academic Support

The Office of Student Affairs provides a variety of programs supporting the academic needs of students. Student Affairs encourages students to participate in the different programs to make their stay at the Law School an enjoyable and fruitful experience.

Workshops

First Year Workshops have concluded for the 2014-2015 Academic Year. Please check back at a later date for Fall 2015 and Spring 2016 Workshop dates.

Academic Enrichment Program

The Academic Enrichment Program (AEP) is a program designed to provide legal skills workshops to law students during their first year of law school. Workshops on exam preparation, reading and briefing cases, outlining, preparing the short and long memo, and appellate brief are some that are offered. AEP also consists of a brief summer program for students who have been traditionally underrepresented in the field of law. Students accepted into the summer program are provided with a mentor and receive academic guidance throughout their first year.
