Irene Diamond Professional Skills Center

The Irene Diamond Professional Skills Center provides academic support to CUNY students through a variety of programs and services. Staff include David Nadvorney, Shirley Lung, Susan Markus, and Haley Meade.

The philosophy of the academic support programs at CUNY is skill-based: we believe that the best service we can provide is to help students develop the academic and study skills necessary to do excellent work. We try to build on the enormous strengths that each student brings to law school, and to assist students to identify their individual learning styles so that they can get the most out of the academic program.

These academic support programs begin in the summer before law school with the Summer Law Institute and continue with a variety of services in the First Year and the Second Year.
