Please welcome Steven Foster, Director of Academic Achievement and Instructor of Law (Oklahoma City University School of Law) as a Contributing Editor for the Law School Academic Support Blog. Many of you will recognize Steven from his involvement with SWCASP and AASE.
His law school's website provides a faculty profile for him:
"Professor Foster joined the law school in December 2008. His specialty is preparing students to take the bar exam, including skill building for both the essay and multiple choice sections. Professor Foster also manages the Academic Achievement department. Academic Achievement provides programs throughout students’ tenure to improve success in the classroom, on the bar exam, and in each students’ profession. The first year includes Foundational Skills Workshops, Student Led Reviews and individual tutoring. Academic Achievement’s offerings transition to bar preparation by the third year. Professor Foster offers the Conquer the Bar lecture series, which discusses all the subjects on the Multistate Bar Exam. He also teaches Advanced Bar Studies focusing on developing specific skills necessary to achieve passing scores on bar exam essay questions. Students are permitted to take Advanced Bar Studies in his/her last semester.
Prior to joining the law school, Professor Foster was an associate at Fenton, Fenton, Smith, Reneau, and Moon where he practiced insurance defense. His main focus was products liability, but he defended numerous other tort actions. Professor Foster graduated summa cum laude from Oklahoma City University School of Law where he received CALI Excellence for the Future Awards for the top grade in 17 classes; won 1st place overall team, 2nd place brief, and 3rd place individual oralist at the National Native American Law Student moot court competition; obtained the Judge Dwain Box Memorial Award for Outstanding Appellate Advocate; was awarded the American Bankruptcy Institute’s Medal of Excellence; and received the School of Law’s Outstanding Graduate Award for Most Likely to Succeed."
Steven will begin posting on the Blog this week. We look forward to his sharing insights on ASP and bar prep with us! (Amy Jarmon)
