There are three faculty directors who focus specifically on academic support at the law school. Co-Director Carol Wilson oversees the Academic Support Program (ASP), Co-Director Rodney Fong is focused on workshops and programs for all students in their first year and in their final year/post-gradation (for the Bar), and Co-Director Richard Sakai works primarily with students who have been identified as needing extra assistance after their first year of study.  The combined services of the three directors fall within the umbrella of the PLUS Program.

All first-year students have the opportunity to attend workshops throughout the school year focused on relevant 1L topics including case reading and briefing, classroom dynamics, note-taking, time management, legal analysis, course outlining, exam taking and time and stress management. Directors are also available to meet individually with students.

In addition, a consulting tutor will be available to all students for each substantive class throughout the first year.  The tutor will attend the substantive class and hold office hours to answer questions and provide individual tutoring as needed.  The tutor will also work with a program director to design and run special sessions for problem analysis and law explanation as the semester proceeds. Individual counseling and tutoring is available for all 1L students depending on need.
