Academic Support – Resources for Ensuring Student Success The Office of Academic Support and Bar-Related Programs coordinates activities, courses and services to help students develop effective study techniques and other essential strategies for achieving academic success. In addition to individualized tutoring and study skills and exam writing workshops, several specially structured academic courses provide more interactive study and exam skills instruction: Defenses in the Law and Practical Lawyering Skills reinforce organizational, critical thinking, writing, listening and exam-taking skills; and Selected Topics in American Law introduces students to the expectations of the California Bar Exam.1 In Southwestern’s Writing Center, students are welcome to visit at any stage of their writing—from brainstorming to polishing. The Writing Center faculty are available to provide individualized feedback and advice and present group workshops on writing composition, citation and grammar issues. The Center assists any law student seeking help with such writing assignments as legal memos, briefs, seminar papers, clinical work, externship assignments, law review or journal notes, cover letters, and writing samples. 1 Note: Some of these courses have limited enrollment
