First published in 1999, Acing Your First Year of Law School has become one of the bestselling law school preparation books of all time.
Every law student will tell you that the first year is the most important and the most frustrating. Law professors do not teach students the law, instead they leave students on their own to figure out the answer from a series of questions. This is a manual that teaches first year law students the ten basic skills they need to know to start learning their first day and ace their first year.
The Second Edition has been updated to reflect the best use of technology. It includes a Preface that addresses the Socratic Method and how to beat it. It also includes an Epilogue that focuses on tasks that are necessary to ensure a successful transition from the first to the second semester.
