Some specific responsibilities of the Director of Academic Success include being responsible for the 1L Structured Study Group program, which includes providing curriculum, training, and supervision to Student Academic Fellows; working with students, individually and in small groups, on legal writing, time management, and test-taking skills; developing and conducting academic support workshops on class preparation, study habits, case briefing, outlining, and exam-taking; and assessing the academic success program, including the law school's bar passage, along with making periodic reports to the faculty on program outcomes. The Director should be prepared to develop and teach a one-hour Legal Methods Study Group in the Spring semester.
Finally, the Director is responsible for working more generally with the Assistant Dean of Student Life and others, to help acculturate students to the rigors of law school and to provide support and referrals to students in need.
