Academic Success Program

The learning curve for law school is steep, and even the best and brightest first-year students may find the transition to law study challenging. The University of Richmond School of Law addresses these challenges by offering programs that can help every student reach his or her academic potential.

The Academic Success program provides first-year students and transfer students with specialized instruction tailored to mastering skills that are unique to the study of law. Through workshops, classes, and individual meetings, students perfect their technical skills in note-taking, case briefing, and outlining. Students also sharpen analytical skills through classroom instruction on exam preparation and exam-taking.

The Academic Success program provides students with the opportunity for one-on-one support in legal writing, course selection, and reading strategies. Additionally, Academic Success professors guide students in time management and stress management. These opportunities help us support our students as they embark upon one of the most meaningful milestones in their lives.
