Academic Success - 1L Embedded Workshops

Fall 2014

Offered by Leah Plunkett, Associate Professor of Legal Skills & Director of Academic Success

The Academic Success Program (“ASP”) offers skill-building workshops for all 1Ls to develop and strengthen the learning skills essential for law school success. 

Workshops will meet every other week on Mondays from 3:30-4:30 p.m., in the Rich Room unless otherwise noted.  (Please note that the first workshop will be held on Thursday 9/4 from 3:30-4:30 p.m. in the Rich Room due to the Labor Day holiday.)

Advance sign-up is not necessary, although attendance will be taken at each workshop.  Topics covered include case briefing, course outlining, and midterm & exam preparation.

Workshops will teach essential skills with reference to the substance of Civil Procedure taught by Professor John Greabe.  Please bring your materials for that class with you to each workshop, as well as any other materials that Professor Plunkett requests ahead of time via email. 

The general progression of the skills engaged will be as follows, although this schedule is subject to change based on student interest and need:
