Academic Excellence

Academic Excellence is the office at GW Law that assists all students in their pursuit of strong academic performance and potential. It is located within the Dean of Students Office. Academic Excellence offers workshops, 1-on-1 counseling, and tutoring.

Academic Support Services

In the Fall and Spring semesters, we offer tutoring services for JD students who have completed at least one semester of law school. You may request tutors for up to 2 classes per semester.

Tutors are fellow law students who have previously taken and excelled in the same course with the same professor.

Tutors are NOT available for Fall semester 1L classes, but are available in the Spring. The program is currently not open to LLM students.

Please contact Dan Prestwich with any questions about the tutoring program.

Academic Excellence workshops are designed to provide GW Law students with the knowledge and skills that are necessary to succeed academically in law school.  Some of the topics covered include class preparation strategies, course outlining, and exam preparation. 

Academic Strategy Sessions are 1-on-1 counseling sessions to discuss your academic performance.  They can be scheduled by following the button below.
