Director of Academic Success Programs
and Bar Support Programs
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.
In the fall, Director Moody presents several lectures and workshops discussing case briefing, outlining, exam preparation and general studying techniques. In the spring semester, students meet with Ms. Moody individually to review studying techniques, review prior exams and practice exams, and advice on course planning. In addition to individual meetings and workshops held by Ms. Moody, 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.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact LaRasz Moody, Director of Academics Success and Bar Support Programs by email or phone 601.519.7136 to set up an appointment.
