Petitions 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 especially challenging.

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 website.
