Student Academic Success Program
South Texas College of Law Houston’s dedication to students’ academic success takes many forms. Professors provide one-on-one support during office hours and student mentors (the Langdell Scholars) work with students after class to review course material.
Academic success resources from orientation until the bar exam include courses, practice opportunities, practice feedback, learning support, and insights to help students succeed in practice and their careers.
For first-year and second-year (1L and 2L) students, the Academic Success Program focuses on essential law school success skills such as case briefing, critical reading, legal analysis, legal writing, outlining, time management, and exam preparation. In addition to for-credit courses, workshops and one-on-one meetings, the Office of Academic Success team works with doctrinal faculty to provide more opportunities for students to practice and strengthen critical law school skills. Third-year (3L) students are trained to use these skills to prepare for and succeed on the bar exam.
