Although final responsibility for meeting degree requirements rests with the individual student, academic support and assistance is available to all students. The Academic Support Department advises students of law school expectations and provides strategic resources to equip students for success in school and on the California Bar Exam.
New students will enjoy the benefits of a highly coordinated program of fundamental skills such as case briefing, outlining, and exam preparation, all of which help students become fully prepared for their law school exams. For Juris Doctor students in their second year and higher, we offer On Course, a program designed to prepare students for every subject area and testing method of the bar exam.
The Trinity Law School On Course program is an academic support program designed to ensure that 100% of Trinity students get the best value from their education by mastering the skills needed for success and equipping all students to take the California Bar Exam.
Students will be introduced to Academic Support and On Course during New Student Orientation.
