Law School Prep Courses

Postby Kevin Arnold » Thu Jan 17, 2013 9:42 pm

Are there any that are truly good? Lawpreview.com seems to be the most legit. Would this be a decent idea to prepare for law school? I know it's expensive but if it were payed for, would you do it?

So I take it that you don't consider them very effective?

The common wisdom is that Powerscore or Manhattan are the best.

OP, what preview course would you recommend to students about to attend your undergrad? You probably wouldn't recommend a course. You'd tell them to take the summer off so they weren't stressing when they got there.

Yeah, just keep studying for the LSAT until you go to law school. :roll:

I just checked and saw some information on a course called LEEWS. Would you recommend it?

That's not what he was getting at. The overwhelming consensus is that Law Previews are a giant waste of time and money. Here's a pretty unbiased review I read a year or so ago. If you want to prep for law school before you get there, buy a copy of Getting to Maybe for $10 and learn to type faster.
