Law Preview seminars before 1L

Postby JD Walters » Tue Apr 21, 2015 11:51 am

I was wondering if anyone has looked into or is familiar with pre-law school prep seminars like Barbri Law Preview. I'm considering attending but was curious if anyone else has an opinion on whether its worth it and/or which program is best.

Thanks!

I probably wouldn't do it even if it was free but if you do it, make sure it's free.

Did it for free. Was not useful in the slightest. By the way, they even tell you that it won't be useful (substantively). They literally just tell you to outline and study for 12 hours a day (that is not a joke). There I saved you $1000!

I did Law Preview for free, and I have friends who did my school's version (also free). The consensus is that it's not worth paying for, and DEFINITELY not worth full price. The most useful thing you learn is how to brief a case, and all that does is put you a couple of weeks ahead of your classmates in that one thing. When they've mastered case briefing in week 2 or 3, there's no advantage left. And then pretty much everyone has stopped fully briefing by like week 8 anyway.

Thank you for the input! Fortunately, I have the opportunity to do it for free. I wouldn't consider it if I had to pay.
