The mission of Law Success is to help prepare students for success in law school, on the bar exam, and in practice. To accomplish this mission, the Law Success program takes an innovative, data-driven approach to student growth by using assessments and data-gathering to plan legal skills development, bar exam initiatives, and individual academic counseling.
The data also forms the foundation of our rigorous legal skills curriculum, including our first-year writing and lawyering class, our second-year experiential writing course, and our third-year bar preparation for credit course, and involves significant writing development, practice readiness simulations, and individual student skill building.
The heart of Law Success is to recognize and embrace that different people have different areas of strength coming into law school. No one comes in a fully formed attorney. Meeting students where they are as they start and as they continue to progress is a huge goal of ours and a critical part of the mission.Zoe Niesel, Executive Director of Law Success & Assistant Professor of Law
