Brandeis Academic Fellows

The Law School offers first-year students a unique opportunity by allowing upper-division law students ("Brandeis Academic Fellows") to lead structured study group sessions in tandem with a first-year subject.  The Structured Study Group program is devoted to helping students learn the skills they need to employ to learn substantive legal material, to organize and review that material, and to practice exam writing.

Each structured study group meets weekly for one hour.  Academic Fellows provide instruction regarding traditional law school study skills, including reading and briefing cases, taking notes, outlining courses, and writing answers to law school exams.
