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.
I would definitely recommend Law Preview to any incoming 1L. I found the subject lessons to be extremely helpful and many of the cases in the Law Preview book were also in most of the school casebooks. I also benefited greatly from the advice Law Preview gives about how to brief, study, and manage time. The continuing emails I received from Don were also very helpful and encouraging. I believe the program is very worth taking. After my first semester I earned a 3.75/4.0 GPA.
