Your legal education opens an exciting new chapter in your life, but it can also be overwhelming.
You probably have numerous questions whirling through your head.
- What will the final exam look like?
- How can I prepare for the final when reading and briefing cases takes up all of my free time?
- How do I avoid flubbing it when I’m called on in class?
- What do the professors want us to take away from the readings?
- Which details are important in the grand scheme of things?
- How do I outline for final exams?
- Why does everyone else sound like they know so much more than me?
It’s hard to even know where to start looking for answers.
I know the feeling.
When I started law school, I had absolutely no idea what to expect. I grew up in a foreign country (Turkey), learned English as a second language in a family with no English speakers, and came to the United States by myself when I was 17. To top it off, I majored in astronomy in college and wrote a grand total of two papers.
Not an ideal background for an aspiring lawyer.
I knew I had my work cut out for me. So I did everything I could do to learn how to succeed the hard way.
I devoured self-help books on law school, interviewed successful law students, peppered my professors with endless questions, and throughout all this, discovered surprising strategies for law school success. I tailored these strategies with trial-and-error over my law school career, and graduated with a 4.17 GPA out of 4.3 (A+).
Since then, as a law professor, I have advised hundreds of law students and observed from the sidelines as these strategies were validated over and over again.
So what’s the secret to success in law school?
We assume that being successful in law school doesn’t need to be taught. If you have the innate abilities to be a star law student, great. If not, you’re out of luck.
What if I told you that success in law school has little to do with being a genius workaholic?
What if excelling in law school could be learned with some practice?
