Whenever students ask me for advice about starting law school, I tell them to be disciplined in their approach to achieving success in their first-year. Discipline and success as a 1L sets the stage for success in the remaining years of law school, which can mean the difference between being recruited for a job or having to search for one upon graduation. LexisNexis is excited to sponsor students to attend Law Preview because we view our support as another opportunity to help entering law students prepare for the rigors of law school. Academic success as a 1L is an instrumental step to a prosperous legal career, and the preparation for it provided by Law Preview will definitely aid that success.
ILaw Preview was an invaluable experience to me. I highly recommend the class, especially if you've been out of school for a couple of years and need to get back in the swing of things. This program got me into a focused academic mindset, prepared me for law school's massive workload, and gave me the confidence that I could handle everything my professors might throw at me. . . . I just completed interviews for my 2L summer, and received offers from eight big DC law firms, including Cleary Gottlieb, Hogan & Hartson, and Wilmer Hale. I could not be more thrilled and I knowthe vast majority of my success is due to my GPA (4.06 after 2 semesters at Maryland Law), which I credit in part to the Law Preview program. Thanks for preparing me to excel in law school!
