Given the unique teaching and testing methods you will encounter in law school, it’s no wonder that students quickly learn that the study tactics they employed in college don’t always translate.

Online legal research is fundamental to the practice of law today. Every law school requires first year students to take a Legal Research or Lawyering Skills class. Learn — in straightforward terms — how to navigate a legal research database and tackle any research project from beginning to end. You’ll learn the various primary and secondary sources of law and how to find them quickly. Reading cases will take up a lot of your time in law school. This module will give you strategies for saving time and, ultimately, help you determine if the law you’ve found is still “good law.”
I pursued Law Preview online at my own pace, and I developed a method and a structure for attacking my first semester in an intentional way. Law Preview taught me that my first semester would be a marathon, rather than a sprint, and helped me to adjust my approach accordingly. I entered my first exam period with tremendous confidence, and the results bore out the many lessons of Law Preview. I earned top grades in each of my courses, and I received multiple exam prizes. After I received my first-semester grades, Don was gracious enough to operationalize his network on my behalf. He called several prospective summer employers, and his recommendation was instrumental in eliciting an offer from my top choice.

I attended your July session at NYU and just completed my first semester at NY Law School, I wanted to let you know that Law Preview provided me tools necessary to post a 4.11 (A+ in Contracts, A in Torts and A in Legal Practice) going to school part time and working full time. Your methods allowed me to do minimal “crunch time” studying for that midterm and post the highest grades on both assignments. Thank you from someone who has never held a 4.0 in his life!
