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. Typically these meetings occur once or twice a week for an hour or two.

Various tutors also hold office hours. The daily calendar is below.

If you would like to request a tutor or apply to be one, contact Professor Patrick Barry (barrypj@umich.edu), the director of academic and writing support. Please include the name of classes you would like help with.
