Academic Success

Welcome to the Mercer Law Academic Success Program (ASP). Here at Mercer Law we aim for our students to have a rewarding educational experience. At some point during their law school studies, all students will benefit from support that helps them perform at their best. Academic Success will help students navigate through all three years of law school. The program consists of skills courses, peer mentoring, periodic academic workshops and seminars, and one-on-one counseling.

The Academic Success Program starts the first week of law school with Legal Process, a 1 credit-hour course required for 1L students. The course is designed to help students transition from their undergraduate studies to law school. In the final semester, students may take Bar Preparation, a course that focuses on the knowledge and skills that have been shown to be helpful in passing the bar exam.

The Peer-to-Peer Mentoring Program is another foundational component of ASP. Many of the upper-class mentors explain that they became mentors because the program was so helpful for them that they wanted to share their insights with the next group of students.

ASP also designs and organizes supplemental programing. Although many of our workshops and seminars are aimed toward 1Ls,  the offerings have recently expanded to reach bar-related 2L courses.

And of course the Academic Success Team is here to help students in all of their academic endeavors. To make an appointment for individual counseling, please do not hesitate to contact Program Director, Professor Peg McCann, Office 342, mccann_me@law.mercer.edu, or Assistant Director, Professor Anne G. Johnson, Office 349, johnson_a@law.mercer.edu.
