available for fall ASP small group sessions
The Academic Support Program (ASP) is designed
to ensure that all students at Chicago-Kent College of Law
develop the skills to succeed academically. The program
provides valuable information to all students to empower
them to become effective learners. The program also provides
additional assistance to students who may find law school
The ASP Small Group Sessions are one aspect of this program.
The Small Group Sessions provide the opportunity for a limited
number of students to improve skills necessary for success
in law school by providing coaching from teaching assistants.
These weekly one-hour meetings are not review sessions of
class material; the lessons focus on skills enhancement
in the context of the class subject matter.
Although participation in the program is voluntary, if
you are accepted into the program, you are required to attend
all small group sessions offered each week. Day students
must attend all three meetings each week, while evening
students meet twice each week. This attendance policy is
required to provide continuity to the small group sessions.
Some entering students will receive an invitation letter
to participate in the Small Group Sessions. If you did not
receive a letter and think that this type of program would
be beneficial for your success in law school, you can submit
a petition requesting to join the small group sessions.
Completed petitions must be submitted to Jamie
Lake by September 2, 2005. Click here
to access the petition form. Enrollment decisions for petitioners
will be made depending on available space and a demonstrated
need for this type of service. You can find more information
about the ASP program on the ASP
