Volunteers Needed for Bar Preparation Program: Give Students Feedback on Practice Essay Exams

Professor Sally Zusman, who runs Mitchell’s highly regarded Academic Achievement Program, is looking for alumni to provide feedback on practice essay exams to students enrolled in her Bar Preparation course during the fall and spring semesters. As practitioners, your feedback will be invaluable to students who are pushing themselves to improve their exam writing skills. Volunteers would receive an article about strategies for providing effective feedback and a marked essay exam as an example of effective feedback. Volunteers would likely be asked to comment on 2-4 essays per semester (but could always decline a particular request if necessary).
