Event Details

Academic Success Workshops

Fall 2015

 Each Workshop is given twice a week!

12:40-1:40 pm

Tuesdays in class room 236 (lunch is provided)

Thursdays in class room 135 (Make-Up - BYOL)

WEEK ONE – How to Succeed in Law School

Tuesday, August 25 Room 236
or Thursday, August 27 (Make-Up - BYOL) Room 135

An overview of the skills and habits you need to do your best in law school, including tips on time management, class participation, and planning for exams.  On Tuesday, food will be served!

WEEK TWO – Exam-Focused Reading, Notes, and Participation

Tuesday, September 1 (RSVP by 5 pm on Friday, Aug. 28)
or Thursday, September 3 (Make-Up - BYOL)

In college, reading, note-taking, and class attendance is usually passive – students read the textbook, go to class, listen to a lecture, take notes, and then regurgitate the information for the exam (and whoever remembers the most stuff gets the “A”).  Since law school exams reward legal analysis, not rote memorization, you need to learn how to read “like a lawyer” and “activate” your notes for your exams.

WEEK THREE – Outlines: Succeeding on Exams

Tuesday, September 8 Room 236 (RSVP by 5 pm on Friday, Sept. 4)
or Thursday, September 10 (Make-up - BYOL) Room 135

You’ll hear a lot about class outlines, and every year students say that they wished they had started them earlier.  This Workshop will teach you how to make an effective one.

LATER IN THE SEMESTER:

How to Write an Exam I (Basics), How to Write an Exam II (Issue Spotting), and Simulated Exams in Torts, Contracts, and Criminal Law– Work on law school questions under Simulated Exam conditions.
