AASE actively encourages and promotes scholarship by all academic support professionals, whether that scholarship be about academic support or other topics. Academic support literature is found in a variety of formats, from books and law review articles to shorter pieces published in a variety of media. Academic support is a vibrant and growing area of scholarship, both to developing the substance of our discipline and to cementing academic support as a field of study populated by experts.


The scholarship pieces provided on this website are important for the expression of ideas that advance legal education and the legal profession.

However, the views expressed in each article are representative of the author and are not intended to represent the AASE membership.

The following is a searchable list of published work in academic support, though new scholarship is being produced every day.
