About this title

Synopsis:

This is a powerful, accessible and practical book that breaks law school learning strategies into understandable, logical and practical steps that maximize the effect of students' study efforts, and explicitly ties those learning strategies to the strategies practicing lawyers use to understand, analyze and apply legal concepts in the real life representation of their clients. Students who employ its methods not only improve their law school performances and increase their chances of passing the bar on their first try, but they also come to understand the practical implications of their hard work for the transition into the real world of practice, where clients entrust to lawyers the protection of their rights, their property, liberties, some times even their lives. In other words, students will learn how to practice law while pursuing success in studying law.

From the Author:

If you want to achieve your personal best in law school, it is imperative that you hit the ground running on day one.  Why?  Because the GPA you attain in that critical first semester is remarkably important with respect to the opportunities that lie ahead. A poor showing in the fall semester will take five more semesters to overcome; and irrevocably cuts off your chance to finish near the top of the class.

That's looking at the law school experience from the "grading" or "class rank" point of view; a very important consideration.

But look at this this way: each day of law school ought to be devoted to becoming the kind of lawyer you would hire if your personal freedom were at risk ... if you were accused of a felony you did not commit; if you were facing a corporate meltdown that could be avoided; or if your child were in legal trouble.

The sooner you realize that the day you graduated from your undergraduate institution was your last day of school, the better you will do in law school.  This is a fact: when you show up for your first day of law "school," you will be entering the first day of your practice of law.  Don't be baffled by demands of law school; be prepared to enter the practice of law.
