Free JD Advising Law School Flashcards Sample

Some students go into law school exams with a false sense of confidence thinking they “have an idea” of legal concepts and can consult their books or outline if needed. In reality, students will not have time to consult their outlines or materials very often during the exam. To score high on a law school exam, therefore, you will have to have memorized the material tested. While it is easy to feel overwhelmed by the amount of material you must learn in your law school classes, our law school flashcards, as part of our new law school study aids, can help. (If you sign up for our free trial, you can see a sample of several of our flashcards. Please also see a few free samples of our flashcards below!)

Law School Midterms, Common MEE Mistakes

How To Effectively Study For Law School Midterms

How To Effectively Study For Law School Midterms

Law school midterms may seem like an unnecessary challenge standing between you and your final grade. However, midterms can actually provide a great benchmark for how you are doing in a certain class. While final exams usually get all of the attention, midterms can provide great academic insight if you take them seriously. We say “take them seriously” because midterms generally don’t make up a huge portion of your final grade. Since midterms don’t really account for a huge percentage of final grades – how should you study for them? Here are our best tips for how to effectively study for your upcoming law school midterms.

1L Summer Position, Non-Traditional Law Student

Am I A Non-Traditional Law Student?

Am I A Non-Traditional Law Student?

Many students do not go to law school directly after completing college.  Some work in jobs related to the law, others may pursue graduate study, and still others may have entire careers in fields totally unrelated to the law.  Law school affords all students the opportunity to work in a variety of fields, and unlike a Ph.D., law school can be completed in three years in many instances.   Given the versatility and flexibility of the law degree—not to mention the potential earning power that can come with the degree—a law school class can be incredibly diverse and may include students who are not attending law school immediately after finishing their undergraduate studies.  This brings us to the question of the post: am I a non-traditional law student? Below we provide four questions to help you think through your own law school experience.
