Academic Skills Program

UCI Law’s Academic Skills Program (ASP) is a resource for all students seeking to maximize their academic success in law school. From identifying the keys to effective class preparation for first-year students, to solidifying legal analysis and legal writing skills for second-year students, to demystifying the bar exam for third-year students, ASP provides critical skills instruction to help students excel in all stages of their legal education.

ASP offers:

  • A comprehensive, general academic skills program open to all 1Ls, including workshops and integrated exercises in first-year courses;
  • Upper-level courses in advanced legal analysis and legal writing, open to all 2Ls and 3Ls, restricted by class size;
  • Individual academic counseling and feedback on practice exams, open to all students at any point in their academic career;
  • “Early Bar Prep” programs open to all 2Ls and 3Ls; and
  • Continued support to all graduates during bar-exam study, including the “Bar Foundations” program, which offers workshops on strategies for excelling in the written and multiple-choice portions of the bar exam, as well as numerous opportunities for individual feedback on practice bar essays and performance tests.
