Surviving the First Year of Law School.
Canada, Ralph; And Others
Practical experience gained in law school courses by recent Harvard Law School graduates is offered in this handbook. Suggested pre-entrance readings are offered, followed by chapters on: preparing for class; performing in class; changing study methods as the semester progresses; finding a summer job; moot court; preparation for exams; and taking exams. Specific advice is given for dealing with such things as professors' expectations or forming study groups. Illustrative samples of a case marked up for analysis, a short- and long-version brief, and two exams with graded answers (and why the exams were graded differently) are provided. A complete course outline in Civil Procedures--a core first-year law school course--and exam checklist for the course are also presented. Appended is "Some Fundamentals of the Law," which includes information on the federal system, the process of litigation, the structure of the courts, law and equity, and common law and statutory law.
