Small Group Sessions

The Academic Skills Program provides additional assistance to students who may find law school especially challenging through the ASP Small Group Sessions, structured meetings for each doctrinal class led by Teaching Assistants. These weekly one-hour lessons focus on skills enhancement in the context of the subject matter for each class; they are not merely review sessions of class material.

During both semesters of the first year of law school, some students will be invited to participate in the ASP Small Group Sessions. In the fall, students are selected for membership in this program based upon a number of admissions criteria, including, but not limited to, LSAT score, college GPA, undergraduate course of study, and length of time since last in school. In the spring semester, participants are selected based upon their performance during the fall semester.

Any first-year student interested in participating in the Small Group Session who was not invited into the program is encouraged to submit a written petition to Dawn Young. Please submit a petition by, Monday, January 25, 2021.
