Academic Support Program

The Academic Support Program (ASP) is designed to help individuals in need of extra support meet the rigorous demands of law school.

ASP provides assistance by helping students develop skills that enhance academic readiness and performance. Working one-on-one with students, the program director develops personalized strategies for success in law school. The admissions committee carefully evaluates performance indicators and other criteria to determine who could initially benefit from the program.

Students selected are required to attend a three-week summer orientation program designed to foster a sense of community and to introduce strategies for academic excellence. These students also attend tutorials taught by second and third year students throughout the first year. Finally, they attend a course that focuses on analyzing and writing answers to hypotheticals to develop skills at taking law school exams. The program director meets individually with the students to evaluate academic progress, work on writing skills, and discuss personal issues as necessary.

First Year Diversity Program

USF recognizes that the rigorous demands of a legal education may be especially challenging for applicants who have been culturally, educationally, economically, or historically disadvantaged, who have not been in an academic setting for a number of years, or who have disabilities. USF created the diversity component of ASP to assist these otherwise well-qualified individuals in succeeding in law school. The Admissions Committee carefully evaluates performance indicators and other criteria to determine who may benefit from this component of ASP.
