Every practicing attorney knows that while top academic performance during the first year of law school is critical, the 1L year presents a truly unique set of challenges that, regardless of your background or circumstances, can be difficult to overcome without proper preparation. When Faegre Baker Daniels was deciding where to invest resources in order to help reinforce the diversity pipeline, we noticed a potential gap in preparation between college and law school. The Law Preview program bridges that gap by providing students with big-picture overviews of each of the core 1L classes and by teaching proven success tactics that help substantially decrease the learning curve new law students must confront. Faegre Baker Daniels is proud to partner with our corporate client Target and sponsor select members of the University of Minnesota Law School's entering class to attend Law Preview this summer.
