Hi Everyone. This is my first blog post as an About.com Expert. I am very happy to be here.
First, a bit about me. I am the co-founder of the Law School Toolbox, the Bar Exam Toolbox, and Trebuchet, which are resources for law students, young lawyers and those studying for the bar exam. In 2009, I founded Amicus Tutoring, which offers one-on-one test preparation to help students study for the California Bar Exam and law school exams. My professional passion is helping people find success in law school, the bar exam and then find a place in the legal profession where they can be happy and successful.
As it is law school exam time, I wanted to start off with content to help you prepare for your law school exams.
First, let's tackle the very important topic of outlines. Please check out the links below for tips on outlining for your law school exams (yes, you need to outline!).
- What is the point of law school outlines? Many law students wonder, "What's the point of law school outlines?" Once law students understand the purpose of outlines, it is easier to allocate time to work on them as well as make useful outlines that actually help in the study process.
- How to outline for different types of law school exams. Law students often wonder if they need different outlines for different types of law school exams (because we all already agree that outlining is important). The answer is--in true law school fashion--it depends. In this post I talk about how to outline for different types of law school exams.
- What is an attack plan? You may have heard about "attack plans" in class, from your academic support office, or even from your study group. But many law students don't understand what an attack plan actually is or how it can help them outline and study for exams. That is a problem, because attack plans are the exam-taking "secret sauce."
Have any other questions about outlining for law school exams? Please leave them in the comments.
