Academic Enhancement Skills Program

The staff members will provide their assigned students with feedback on written exercises that are designed to enhance the student’s essay exam writing skills.  The Academic Enhancement Skills program is a progressive exam writing program that emphasizes organizational and analytical skills.  The program is not designed to teach substantive law; instead, the goal of the program is to aid students in writing a comprehensive analysis regarding substantive legal concepts.

In this program, students will be given practice essay exam questions and asked to provide a written answer.  The staff person will then review the written answer and provide the student with feedback on how to improve the organization and structure of the answer.  Additionally, insight will be provided regarding the sufficiency of the analytical components of the written answer.  Due to the progressive nature of the program, additional writing opportunities will be provided in response to the student’s performance on previous exercises.
