Academic Services

The USF School of Law offers a variety of services to all students to help them succeed in their law school classes and on the bar examination.

The Academic Support Program (ASP) provides assistance to specially selected incoming students through a three-week summer program that introduces the challenges of law school with hands-on exercises and exam rehearsals during the students’ first-year.

The Academic and Bar Exam Success Program (ABES) begins for all students the first day of orientation and ends after students take the bar examination. During the first year, ABES offers workshops that teach study techniques and exam-taking strategies to help students transition into law school and excel on final exams. ABES also provides bar preparation services to second- and third-year students through group programming and one-on-one sessions.

Heidi HoAs a graduate of USF's Academic Support Program in 1997, I understand first-hand the positive impact the program had on my law school experience and on my subsequent career. I was fortunate to practice in three states and finally returned home to USF as the ASP Co-director because I wanted to give this same support to the next generation."
