Law Preview Courses: Worth it?

A forum for applicants and admitted students to ask law students and graduates about law school and the practice of law.

Are the law preview classes offered the summer before starting 1L worth it?

No - I've taken it and it was a waste of time and money. Enjoy the last of your freedom instead.

Law Preview Courses: Worth it?

Postby masterherm » Sun Apr 26, 2015 10:03 pm

I got an email recently about applying for a scholarship for one of those law preview courses. I've been out of school for a couple years, so I could kind of see the appeal in taking one of the prep courses.. they're basically 4-5 days of instruction as a general overview on what to expect in law school. I'm curious just how useful these actually are when it comes to grades - my gut is telling me that anything I do before starting law school won't make any difference when it comes time for finals.

Thoughts??

Not worth the money. Better to buy individual books on Amazon in order to quell pre-1L anxieties. But, if you get a full scholarship, then the travel & hotel costs may be justified as a "working vacation".
