Welcome to the Villanova University School of Law Office of Academic Success Programs. This office is designed to help students achieve academic success in law school. The Office of Academic Success Programs provides services to students through an academic mentor program, study skills seminars, instructional materials, one-on-one meetings, and an informational website.
The Office of Academic Success also offers a 1L mentor program, which provides upper-level mentors in select first year courses. First year students are mentored by upper class students on studying skills, outlining and preparing for exams in first year courses, as well as advice on general law school concerns.
Everyone needs support at some point in their law school career, which is why the Office of Academic Success is open to everyone. If you need reassurance that you are on the right track or more intensive help, the Office of Academic Success is here to assist in whatever way possible. You are welcome to stop by the office to review study aides before buying them and you are encouraged to browse the Academic Success website to view content on studying techniques, time management, and academic planning and bar exam preparation.
For guidance regarding grades and studying in general, students are encouraged to contact their academic advisor. If you have additional questions or concerns, please contact Megan Jacobs, Assistant Director of Academic Affairs, and she will direct you to the proper person. Megan can be reached by email or phone at 610-519-7053.
