Melissa Shaw joins us to direct our academic support efforts with respect to bar preparation for our LLM students. [The Washington Bar has recently announced the opportunity for international law grads to take the Bar Exam.]
Melissa will be working with our LLM students to help them succeed on the Bar Exam here and in New York.
Melissa has long experience working with students and faculty in designing and administering Bar preparation programs and teaching test-taking strategies for success on the MBE, MEE, essay and MPT. Melissa worked for Barbri Law review for many years rising to Regional Vice President for the Northwest. She recently developed and taught an early Bar Prep course at Gonzaga that markedly increased Bar passage. She will be creating just such a course for our LLM students in the Spring Term and will also be working with the faculty teaching LLM students.
Melissa's office is in 216.
