Academic Success Program

Congratulations on being admitted to Washburn University School of Law! Take a minute to bask in your achievements and then take a deep breath: you are about to face new challenges that will result in even greater success. You are entering a totally new environment, one requiring new skills, discipline, focus, and a tremendous amount of time.

At Washburn Law, incoming students get a "jump start" on developing the skills necessary for success in law school by attending First Week before the fall semester begins. If you have any questions about the Academic Success Program, please contact Professor Susannah Pollvogt, Director of Academic Success and Bar Passage, by e-mail at

Congratulations once more on your past achievements, and here's to a bright future through academic success in law school!
