Law School Exam Guide Book

  1. 1. •What’s in the book?•Why should you read it?
  2. 2. BUT FIRST . . .I wrote this book because I was disgusted by the way law schools hide information from their students. You should be given all the information you need to succeed in law school. You should not have to “wing it” as you go along.
  3. 3. MY LAW SCHOOL EXPERIENCE… I entered law school after having completed a Ph.D. program in history. I assumed law school would be a lot easier than doing research in a sixteenth-century archive and spending a year writing a dissertation.
  4. 4. MY LAW SCHOOL EXPERIENCE… (CON’T) In some ways, it was:  There was more simple memorization; and  Less intellectual engagement. In some ways, it was not:  Most professors were terrible;  It seemed like being at work instead of school; and  The stress and time pressure were ridiculous.
  5. 5. FIRST SEMESTER EXAMS Into this environment of uncertainty and stress, come the first semester exams. I had no idea what to do to succeed. I felt lost. After the exams, I was sure I had failed. I hated law school. I wanted to drop out. I started looking for a job, but…
  6. 6. HUH? When I got my grades, I learned that I was FIRST IN MY CLASS?!?! I was dumbfounded. I started reviewing exactly what I had done during first semester. I soon realized what my professors wanted and how to study correctly for law school exams.
  7. 7. IN FACT… I figured out the game so well, that I graduated first in my class at the end of three years!
  8. 8. THE BOOK And so, several years after graduating and practicing law, I kept getting questions from people about law school. I started to put together some notes to give to these people. Soon, I realized that I had a book.
  9. 9. SO . . . If this sounds like something you would like to know more about, please read my book. It is available on for your your Kindle or Kindle-enabled device. Thanks for watching.
