Academic Success and Professionalism Program (ASP)

The primary mission of the Academic Success and Professionalism Program (ASP) is to help all NSU law students develop fundamental skills that provide a solid foundation for success on law school exams, the bar exam, and the practice of law.

These skills include:

  • critical reading;
  • logical and strategic thinking;
  • problem solving;
  • effective written and oral legal analysis;
  • time and stress management; and
  • professional identity formation.

To accomplish its mission, ASP offers a comprehensive set of courses, individualized counseling, and other programming, from 1L through bar exam preparation, to assist our students in making smooth and effective transitions from layperson to law student and, ultimately, to licensed attorneys. Assisted by staff, highly qualified ASP Professors of Practice support NSU law students throughout their law school careers and while studying for the bar exam.
