Learn Why First Year Law School Grades Matter Most

Why Prepare for Law School

Your first year is crucial to success throughout law school and even affects future career opportunities. Top grades during your 1L year mean more than in any other year, because the most selective legal employers often start recruiting so early that first year grades are all that they see.

First year grades also typically determine a student’s eligibility for law review and other prestigious scholastic activities, including moot court, journals and assistantships with professors. Since many top employers refuse to interview candidates without these honors, a student’s academic performance during the first year dramatically impacts the professional opportunities available upon graduation.

You’ll learn everything you need to know, what to expect and how to truly excel in your first year and beyond. And since Law Preview is a BARBRI company, you can also choose to rely on best-in-class BARBRI law school resources during your entire law school experience.
