Law School Prep Course

45 clock hours / $300

An intensive 14-hour workshop for those desiring to excel, and not merely survive, in their first year of law school.  This course’s objective is to teach a proven approach for attacking the onerous casebook method of instruction so that a dedicated student can maximize his or her study time and grades even before the first day of law school.  We will show you how not to get lost in the “paper waste.”

Course Topics:

  • Mastering the Casebook Method of Instruction
  • Recognizing the Point of Law
  • Isolating the Issues
  • Class Participation and Taking Notes
  • Developing a Course Outline
  • The Law School Exam

You are unlikely to find many multiple choice or “one-word answer” questions on your law school exams.  More common questions will require you to identify and discuss issues and fact patterns as they relate to the pertinent rules of law.  Not only must you have the ability to apply the law to the facts, you must also present your answers in a clear and well-organized manner.  We will examine a well-written exam answer and review the elements of a clear and precise writing style.  We will then have you respond to a hypothetical examination question and return it to you with a grade and critique.  No required text.
