Structured Study Groups

The Structured Study Group (SSG) Program helps students in first-year classes assess and enhance their understanding of key subject areas, including Contracts, Civil Procedure, Constitutional Law, and Property.

Using varied teaching techniques for a range of learning styles, successful upper-division Supplemental Instructors (or SIs) hold weekly sessions where students practice application of substantive law to new sets of facts, or map key cases and concepts using flow-charts or diagrams. Students also learn skills applicable to other courses, including effective study techniques, outlining, time management, and exam preparation and writing.

SSG sessions are purely voluntary, but highly recommended to assist in the adjustment to law school academic work. Limited one-on-one assistance with SIs may also be available through the program.
