The Mason Enhancement Program for Academic Success (MEPAS) was held July 6 through July 27th. Eleven students participated in the three-week rigorous pre-law school program. The program introduced students to first year foundational courses of Torts, Civil Procedure and Criminal law, in addition to Legal Writing and Legal Reasoning. Students were also introduced to the concept of self-regulated learning in planning their studies and invoking new learning skills. They also learned case briefing and fundamental skills of legal analysis. In addition to the classes, there were weekly MEPAS activities including visits to the D.C Superior courts and the Federal courts, a session on Time Management and a class on the history of the District of Columbia. These students are ready to begin their study of law!
