Peer Tutoring Program

The peer tutoring program is an integral part of our effort to promote academic success.  Tutoring services are available (at no cost) to first year students in the core substantive courses (e.g.: Civil Procedure, Criminal Law, and Torts).  Tutors are second and third year law students who have demonstrated a high level of competence in the first year curriculum and beyond.   Tutoring is also available for a limited number of upper-level law classes.  The tutoring program is not designed for course review; students are encouraged to request a tutor only for areas they find particularly daunting despite their best efforts.

All students experiencing difficulty are expected to take a multi-pronged approach to address areas of concern. Students are encouraged to meet with their professors, talk with class colleagues, participate in a study group, and attend regularly scheduled faculty conducted Academic Success Program workshops in addition to requesting the assistance of a tutor.
