Florida Law ReviewThis week the Florida Law Review concluded its year-long tutoring program for first-year law students. The program began in 2002 as a way to give back to the law school and to assist 1Ls with their first-year courses. Florida Law Review members contribute more than 148 hours per semester toward tutoring sessions, and more than 370 first-year students enrolled for tutoring during the 2008-2009 school year. The tutoring program provides first-year students with the opportunity to ask questions in a less-formal environment, often from students who were taught by the same professors. First-year students rave about how much the extra tutoring helps them with their classes. “The Florida Law Review tutoring program is the pinnacle of peer tutoring,” said first-year student, Greg Kwok. “The guidance and instruction the tutors provided allowed for a more thorough examination and understanding of the course material, given that it comes from students and not professors. It is a tremendous opportunity for the 1L class to work with some of the Law Review students in a very informal and relaxed atmosphere.” “The Florida Law Review tutoring sessions are an invaluable resource for first year law students,” said first-year student, Margo Lyon. “After attending the Law Review tutoring sessions, I felt much more confident and at ease going into my exams.”
