Meet the Director

Scott A. Hite, J.D., M.A. 

Director, Academic Success Program



The Academic Success Director is available to meet with law students for personal academic counseling and study plan assessments.  Students at all levels of academic performance can benefit from feedback on time management, exam preparation, course selection, or bar preparation. In addition, the Director can help students complete a learning styles assessment, which provides students individualized information about their own personal learning style and how best to study, take notes, and write exams.  The Director can also recommend campus resources available to law students to help them maintain a healthy approach to law school throughout the year.


If you need help planning your schedule, or if you just need someone to talk to, please contact Scott Hite, Academic Success Program Director, by email or phone [502.852.1477] to schedule an appointment.
