Get a head start on law school
The Summer Legal Process Course gives participating students an introduction to law school. It is conducted prior to the start of the fall semester, and introduces students to case reading, briefing, and legal writing as well as other key study skills such as time management, outlining, resource creation, legal writing. The course also features mock classes from legal writing and doctrinal professors as well as guest speeches from recent alums and upper-division students who are alumnae of Summer Legal Process.
Summer Legal Process is offered to a small number of entering students, and participation is strictly voluntary. The Academic Success program currently offers a full day version of Summer Legal Process as well as an abbreviated evening version for part-time students.
It is team-taught by members of the full-time faculty, thus exposing the students to several different teaching styles. The course also provides many opportunities for collaboration and creative, thoughtful exploration of different learning methods and techniques. Finally, students take a simulated exam intended to replicate law school final exams, and receive key feedback on their exam performance.
