Director of Bar Programs Micah Yarbrough
recently spoke at the Law School Admission Council’s Academic Assistance Training Workshop held from June 13th through the 15th at the University of Denver’s Sturm School of Law in Denver, Colorado.
The event brought together over 150 legal academics with specialties in bar pre or academic assistance for an intense training program. Sessions included sessions such as “The Evolution and Future of Academic Assistance” and “Teaching the Students of Today.”
“In addition to attending many of the scheduled events, I presented, along with Susan Keller, Associate Dean at Western State College of Law in CA, on assessing the law school curriculum to effectively map where learning goals and objectives and outcomes are taught, Yarborough said, adding, “The session was well attended, and provided me a wonderful opportunity to share my experiences here at Widener working both at the University and Law School level on the development and use of assessment. I was also pleased to see, in showcasing our work here, that Widener School of Law is a leader amongst law schools in modeling effective student learning assessment.”
“I also brought back plenty of ideas that hold great potential for improving the delivery of academic assistance and bar preparation services for our students,” he concluded.
