With a total of 50 years of experience teaching law school between them, the authors of Law School Without Fear offer law students strategies for coping with law school successfully and advice on how to get the most out the law school experience. The book discusses in simple terms what students need to know about law school, covering common problems that law students encounter and solutions to those problems. Topics covered include briefing a case, precedent and how to use it, balancing competing interests and factors, legal writing, and psychological tips for the study of law. Special features include a comprehensive approach to the first year, from the bewildering first day of class through examinations; advice on how to study, how to deal with the classroom experience, and how to take exams; wonderfully brief summaries of fundamental ideas of policy common to almost all law classes; and glossary of frequently used words and phrases.
