Peer Tutoring Program

The Law School's Peer Tutoring program is open to JD students. Tutors are fellow students who have a track record of academic excellence and have demonstrated a commitment to helping others learn. Once assigned, students individually arrange to meet with their tutor at mutually convenient times. These meetings typically occur once or twice a week for an hour or two.

Various tutors also hold office hours. The daily calendar is below. You may reach out to these tutors directly. Just try to email them ahead of time so that they know to expect you.

If you would like to request a more formal tutor arrangement, contact Professor Patrick Barry (barrypj@umich.edu), the Director of Academic and Writing Support. Please identify the name of the course you would like help with, as well as the name of the professor who teaches the course. Where possible, we will try to match you with a tutor who has had that professor before.
