"A step-by-step, issue-by-issue, walk-through of the challenges that face every new law student, with the emotion and stories that bring the experience to life for the reader!"

-Paul M. Lisnek, author of The Hidden Jury
Executive Director, BarBri Law School Prep Program

Admit it-you've been captivated by courtroom dramas, intrigued by national lawsuits, and, overall, fascinated by the opportunity a lawyer has to change the world (while still making a decent living).

The ability to interpret the law and fight for justice gives the legal profession a unique prestige. With more law students than lawyers, however, it now appears that the power and romantic allure of the law has overshadowed reality. The daily life of law school students and attorneys is often misrepresented in popular media, and more prospective attorneys enter law school uncertain of what awaits them both in the classroom and in their career.

Some of the facts that every entering law student needs to know include:

--college majors do matter-but not in the way you think
--grades don't matter-as much as the LSAT
--there is not a job waiting for you at the end
--an honor code will be instilled in you
--you can make a difference

Finally, the truth revealed

Law School 101 is an insightful, and sometimes humorous, guide to help prospective legal scholars anticipate the trials, tribulations, and exaltation of going to law school. Becoming a lawyer is often a frightening, stressful journey, in which every resource you have must be used. Law School 101 teaches you how to avoid common pitfalls, decode myths, and, finally, how to achieve your dream of becoming an amazing lawyer.
