Academic Enhancement Program

The Academic Enhancement Program (AEP) is a collaborative effort involving law school administration, faculty and students with the goal of assisting all students in developing the critical experiences and skills necessary for academic success in law school and beyond. The AEP program is designed to promote academic excellence through enhancement and supportive services for students at all levels of academic performance. For first year students, the learning curve for mastering the law school curriculum can be steeper than expected because the study of law is unique and challenging.
