Synopsis: Successful law students quickly learn that attending lectures and reading casebooks impedes their ability to succeed in law school. As one prominent law professor explains, "law students who perform well on exams often instinctively learn that attendance in the case method class is not particularly important for them to succeed on their exams, and these...students, as well as others, often stop attending daily law school classes." 70 U Cin L Rev 137, 183 (2001).
The sad reality is that most lectures and casebooks ("The Case Method") fail to teach students the information or basic skills needed to excel on fact pattern exams, the dominant form of student evaluation. See, e.g., Id.; 43 Hastings LJ 143 (1991). Worse than failing to prepare students for their final exams, the Case Method fails to prepare students for the practice of law. See, e.g., 42 Fordham L Rev 227, 232 (1973). However, while students can learn to become effective lawyers after law school, there is something a law student only gets one shot at in law school--obtaining good grades.
It is impossible to erase bad grades and typically just as hard to change their consequences on a student's future legal career--consequences that compound because the first job out of law school has a major impact on future opportunities. Therefore, law school should not only teach students how to become effective lawyers, it should also teach the knowledge and skills needed to excel on final exams. The Siri Method modifies how students think about and approach law school in order to achieve these two goals quickly and with maximum results.
The Siri Method provides a holistic understanding of the current model of American legal education and a true understanding of fact pattern exams and the Case Method. It teaches how to develop the skills and acquire the information needed to excel on final exams. It also teaches how to maximize a law student's preparation for the practice of law and the bar examination. Finally, The Siri Method provides the theoretical basis and supporting literature for why it works, ironically written mostly by law professors.
If you are a law student, do not squander away precious time in law school discovering that attending most lectures and reading casebooks will not prepare you for your final exams or the practice of law. Do not squander away further time trying to develop a system for learning the information and skills you will need to excel in law school. Follow the Siri Method to assure you excel on your final exams, best prepare for your bar exam, and properly prepare for the practice of law.
