Pre Law School Classes

Postby thf5007 » Tue Jan 31, 2012 4:15 pm

Was thinking about signing up for one. Does anyone know anything about the different courses available. I've looked on the LEEWS website and The Center for Legal Studies thus far.
Thanks.

They cost different amounts. However, they are all likely equally worthless.

Edited

Equally worth $24.22

We were in your place. We know that you are extremely nervous. Most importantly we know through experience that it is utterly worthless. FWIW, I wasted money on LEEWS.

LEEWS is not worth money? :shock:

Have you tried books by John Delaney's? I heard that it is good to get a better idea of law school exams...

My dad thinks I should be studying "The Law" already. :| I will probably placate him with Getting To Maybe and a LEEWS course. It can't hurt, and it'll get him off my back.

Having done LEEWS, GTM, and Delaney, I can tell you now if you have common sense none of these are worth it.

If you are really worried then read like 50 pages of GTM. All it really tells you is to look for forks (duh) and if you couldn't realize this on your own after a couple of weeks in law school, idk what to tell you.

Yes! I'm in the same boat, and my dad really won't get off my back till I sign up for something. So since I have to do something, even if they are all useless, I'm looking for the 'best' of the useless.

Or tell your dad extra work could be a law school death sentence because of burnout.

I didn't do any of these things, but I still feel like they are pretty worthless. Have fun before school starts.

That'll be more useful than one of those courses. Going in fresh will help you more than going in with some possibly-slightly-helpful knowledge but already a little burned out.
