This book demystifies law school and the process of studying the law. Rather than just describing the various necessary study skills –– including case briefing, taking notes in class, and preparing exam outlines –– the book shows how these skills are interrelated and how an incoming student can practice them before coming to law school, making the transition from prospective to actual law student easier and as painless as possible.
Written in an informal and conversational tone, Coming to Law School shows incoming law students the benefits of coming to law school armed with strong study skills already in place and guides them through the process of getting ready for school with examples and exercises to clarify the points it raises. The book also contains information about many practical issues, including the law school process, how to do well in a summer job, and taking the bar exam.
Although this is not a book about the law, it is designed to help all law students get the most out of law school.
