SUPPORTING FIRST-GEN LAW STUDENTS

This August, the Santa Clara Law Office of Academic & Bar Success launched a new Pre-Orientation Academic Skills Workshop for incoming first-generation students. The goal of the program is to support the students, give them tools for success, and provide them with a preview of the 1L experience—from being assigned cases, to reading and briefing cases, to the doctrinal classroom experience, to outlining and writing a practice exam.
