Office of Academic Excellence

Welcome to the Office of Academic Excellence, where our goal is to support student achievement from matriculation through graduation and beyond. Our team of experienced advisors are ready to help you excel both in your classes and on the bar exam. Law school can be a difficult time for even the best of students, and our team offers workshops, presentations, and individual advising for time management, test-taking, legal analysis, and other skills to help you succeed in your classes. After graduation, we also offer many services to support your bar exam preparation, with individual appointments, personalized study schedules, bar coaching, and exam simulations. Advisors are always ready to help you achieve your academic and bar exam goals, so visit our office in the Capital Building, Suite C-100, email us at oae@wcl.american.edu, or book an individual appointment at www.bookwithoae.com.

The Office of Academic Excellence remains committed to your academic progress and bar exam readiness as we stay in a virtual learning environment. Appointments will be conducted through Zoom: after booking an appointment you will receive an email confirmation that will include a link and instructions for accessing your virtual Zoom meeting. 

We understand the uncertainty of these times. Know we are here to support you throughout the semester.

 

Update on WCL Advocacy for 2020 Bar Exams

For the past several months, WCL has taken many steps to advocate for recent graduates with respect to bar admission and exam administration. Acting Dean Robert Dinerstein said, "we empathize with our 2020 graduates and want you to know that we are working actively, in concert with legal educators locally and nationally, to address your concerns." The Office of Academic Excellence has kept up its robust schedule of individual counseling, community information sessions, test simulations, and mock bar exams as information has been released about bar exams nationwide.
