The classic survival guide to one of the toughest academic challenges you’ll ever face—first - year law... Slaying the Law School Dragon Second Edition First-year law classes are notoriously competitive and the pressure to excel is intense. Yet, each year, nearly 50,000 students willingly subject themselves to that ordeal. Written by a graduate of New York University Law School who went on to become a California Deputy Attorney General, Slaying the Law School Dragon gives law students precisely the brand of no-nonsense, practical advice they need to overcome the obstacles and pitfalls that can trip them up in their first year. While preparing students for all the intellectual rigors of law school, this witty, at times irreverent guide also steels them against the emotional demands placed on first-year students by professors’ attempts to intimidate and appraise them. In Slaying the Law School Dragon, readers will find invaluable tips on how to prepare in advance of the first day of classes; how to study effectively for class; how to prepare for exams; how to put together a brief; how to compose an argument; as well as overview chapters on first-year law courses. Offering the kinds of insights and advice that most students learn the hard way, Slaying the Law School Dragon gives students an indispensable competitive edge.
