The title of this book, The Slacker’s Guide to Law School, might strike some as irreverent. “Slacker” is a term of pride and even endearment among the latest generation of student, however, and this book gives prospective law students a realistic idea of what exactly they are getting into.  This book is not about laziness, but about succeeding on one’s own terms. Thus the subtitle: Success without Stress. (Juan Doria)

From the Publisher:

This book is not about laziness, but rather is about succeeding on one's own terms. Thus the subtitle: Success Without Stress. Both are important, and neither should be seen as the negation of the other. It is possible to be successful as a law student and lawyer without giving up your soul, and it is equally possible to enjoy a healthy and balanced life without giving up success.

Students should: (1) set their own goals and not get caught up in the hype of what everyone else is pursuing; (2) establish methods of study, fine-tuning one that works best; and (3) maintain a healthy life balance. For the careful "slacker," it is possible to make time for hobbies, socializing, dating, or even starting a family. This reduces stress, makes law school more enjoyable, and can even boost performance in class.

From the Author:

This book is titled "The Slacker's Guide to Law School: Success Without Stress." Whether the title is good or bad is for others (including you) to decide, but either way, it requires some explanation. It is a bit of a misnomer, since no law student can truly be a slacker, and no slacker can truly be a law student. Law school is tough work, and actual slackers don't tend to volunteer for three years of tough work. This is comparable to a cookbook titled "The Anorexic's Guide to Gourmet Cuisine."

So this book is not exactly geared toward slackers who are pondering the idea of going to law school. Rather, it is intended for anyone attending, applying to, or considering law school. To this large group, it offers advice in the form of the "slacker approach." Though there is no escaping the fact that law school is tough work, most students make it tougher than it actually has to be. They study, work, and worry more than they really have to. This book and its slacker approach shows you that it is possible to cut the work in half, study efficiently, and get good grades, while keeping a level head and maintaining an enjoyable, relatively stress-free lifestyle. This approach is not for everyone, but just about anyone can benefit from it.

Book Description Paperback. Condition: New. 224 pages. This book is about succeeding on ones own terms. Thus the subtitle: Success without Stress. It is possible to be successful as a law student and lawyer without giving up your soul, and it is equally possible to enjoy a healthy and balanced life without giving up success. Most law school books take a uniform (and unrealistic) approach, with little concern for the real student. Todays job market is excruciating, but that doesnt mean that a double-down on more (make)work, more stress, more, more, more . . . will work. It wont. Law school is about being smart, not just case briefing until you drop. This book is an antidote to the mindless ! assumptions of what being a law student is. You can succeed, and you can have fun too. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9781888960525
