Students who are about to enter law school should understand the importance of first-year grades. A student's 1L grades often determine things like participation in law review and whether the most selective legal employers will offer interviews for Summer Associate positions. Troutman Sanders is committed to building a pipeline of diverse legal talent that not only benefits our firm, but also the legal profession as a whole. We believe that our investment in the Law Preview Scholars Program supports a critical section of that pipeline -- when students transition to law school -- and Troutman Sanders is proud to partner with Law Preview and provide students with a solid foundation upon which they can build their legal careers.
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.
