Good morning, everyone, and a big thanks to Steven and the ASP Blog crew for inviting me here again. Every other Tuesday, I will be posting what will be called the "Academic and Bar Support Scholarship Spotlight." In each post, I will highlight a publication from the academic and/ or bar exam support field.
There will be two categories: "ASP Foundational Scholarship" and "New Scholarship." The first category will reintroduce the seminal pieces that developed the generally agreed upon "best practices" in the academic and bar support field.
The second category of "New Scholarship" is self-explanatory but requires a quick note. Traditionally, academic and bar support faculty have been reluctant to self-promote their scholarship. Perhaps arising out of the "ASPish" moniker, this norm demonstrates the humility that sits at the epicenter of who we are as a community. But, it has also left too much ASP/ Bar scholarship out of the spotlight. I am hoping that this series can help solve that conundrum.
Therefore, if you publish some form of scholarship on law school academic/ bar exam support, please send me a link. I will also promote new scholarship referred or found independently, so if you read a new piece and find it helpful, please let me know.
The format of the piece is not important. Books, law review articles, online law review essays, shorter pieces ... all are welcome. I also welcome suggestions for the ASP Foundational Scholarship category. If a publication positively contributed to your understanding of our field, such that you think others should be aware of it, please let me know and send a link.
Later today, I will post the first installment of the ASP Foundational Scholarship series. No spoilers here, though; you'll have to wait for it.
