Academic Success Program
We are thoroughly committed to students' success. Since 1995, Regent Law has conducted an Academic Success Program (ASP), which is designed to help students achieve academic success in law school. The program's three components are:
- Summer Program: The Summer Program is an extended academic orientation for entering students consisting of a two-week class prior to the standard academic orientation. The program is designed to provide select students with an intensive experience to develop their critical reading, analytical, study, and test-taking skills in a setting that facilitates their transition into law school. The Admissions Committee selects admitted students to participate in the Summer Program if those students possess a strong likelihood of success in law school, but due to their LSAT scores, undergraduate GPA's, or other factors, would benefit from an extended orientation.

- Study Skills Workshops: Designed to supplement the Summer Program and academic orientation material, workshops held during the school year address topics such as techniques for briefing cases, outlining courses, solving legal problems, and preparing for and taking law school examinations.
- One-on-One Advising: ASP faculty give ASP participants (and all students) one-on-one attention and mentoring in a series of advising meetings designed to facilitate academic success. (Click here to read more about one-on-one advising.)
