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.
Law Preview provided big-picture frameworks for all of my substantive first-year courses, which helped me with outlining. It provided a schedule for managing my workload [and] helpful exam-taking strategies, which eliminated the need to figure out my own good strategy before beginning the actual exam preparation. Finally, it provided some assurance that I could ignore the million distractions law school offers during the first semester and focus on my schoolwork.
