Since there are a number of ASP folks who have joined us over the summer and after the LSAC-St. Louis national workshop, I wanted to point out several resources that may be useful to new professionals.
The ASP listserv is available to those who are employed at law schools and working in ASP or bar prep work. Membership allows you to receive listserv postings as well as post queries to the listserv. To join the listserv complete the following steps (it may take more than one try):
- Email the following address with content as indicated below in the next two steps: firstname.lastname@example.org
In the subject line type: subscribe ASP-L
In the body of the message, type your information: Full name, Title, and Law School
If this format does not work after several attempts, instead include (your full name, title, and law school) after the subscribe message in the subject line to see if that will work.
The new Law School Academic Success Project web site is available at www.lawschoolasp.org. The web site includes podcasts and other resources.The site has both ASP Professional and Administrator pages for which you must register as a law school employee to gain access. Click on any of the headings in the left column to be taken to the registration/log-on page. (The Student pages are open to everyone without registration.)
The ASP Wiki is available to ASP professionals employed at law schools. The instructions for registration are found on: http://prof.hillaryburgess.com/ASP/dokuwiki/doku.php.
The Assocaition of American Law Schools (AALS) Academic Support Section web site is located at: http://www.law.umkc.edu/faculty/profiles/glesnerfines/asp/asp.htm. Past copies of The Learning Curve are available on the site. The Learning Curve will begin publication again this year.
In addition, ASPers are very friendly and helpful people. If you are new to ASP work consider contacting your colleagues at other schools with questions as you settle in to your new position. (Amy Jarmon)
