Academic Support

Our Academic Support program advises you of law school expectations, motivates you in the pursuit of your legal studies, and assists you in developing effective study strategies, time management skills, and examination techniques. As a Trinity student, you’ll enjoy the benefits of a highly coordinated program that provides you with the tools needed for academic success in law school, on the California Bar Exam, and beyond. Those tools include workshops on outlining, briefing, and test-taking strategies, our Early Bar Preparation Program, and BarBri AMP™ modules to test your knowledge in bar-tested courses. The Academic Support team regularly shares study tips, tricks, and research on their blog.

On Course

To further help our students, we offer an exclusive program called On Course. On Course supplements your coursework from the beginning to the end of your time at Trinity. It is a hybrid of personalized academic support, fundamental skills reinforcement, counsel, motivation, and bar exam prep through our partnerships with companies such as BarBri, Fleming’s Fundamentals of Law, and Kaplan. For the committed legal scholar, On Course is a consistent, reliable companion that will guide you toward the ultimate goal of becoming a practicing attorney.
