Law School 101: Survival Techniques from Pre-Law to Life as an Attorney

Product Description
Each year, law schools graduate more students than there are practicing lawyers. Why? Because most prospective students have unrealistic expectations and preconceived notions of what law school and the legal profession are really all about. Many enter law school expecting wealth, prestige or the exciting lives of the fictitious attorneys on Law and Order and The Practice without ever considering the very real pressure, competition, workload and commitment involved. … More >>

  1. “Law School 101” is the bible for anyone that wants to enter the field of law. R. Stephanie Good is a New York Times best selling author,

    and also co-authored “Aruba. After reading Karl Hungus’s review, I realized that he is most likely the guy

    that did the same thing on the “Aruba” book. Karl gave it away when he supposedly

    analyzed the “Aruba” book in the “Law School 101” comment. Karl stay in Aruba and we will keep boycotting your country. Never knew there was an Ohio, Aruba. LOL

    Anyone wanting a book to inform and motivate your career should read “Law School 101”

  2. The author seems pretty disillusioned with law and law school. The first half of the book is pretty good and gives some insight into the admissions process and preparing for law school. But, most of her advice for after the 1st year seems to be how to get through while putting in the least effort. I hope that most people are not paying 30K a year just to skate through and spend as little time as possible on schoolwork. I’m more interested in getting as much as I can out of my time there, not finding out which professors give easy A’s.

  3. I purchased this book before I started law school as a primer to help give me an idea of what to expect. I found the book to be honest and helpful as an incoming student. I can tell you law school is stressful and time consuming and no book can prepare you for the real deal. However, if you are looking to get an insight, after reading several law prep books I found this one especially helpful.

  4. I love the way this book guided me through law school this year. My first year was hell and I found this book and made a huge turn around. It was easy reading and enjoyable, but it was also so informative that my second year was much easier to deal with. I have so many tools now to get me through the toughest things, like communicating in class, taking exams, and even just getting through the day to day stress that all of my friends and I have had to live with. I am focusing on criminal law courses and I really love being there now. Law school is nothing like college and we didn’t know that until we got there. If I had it to do over again, I would have found this book and read it before I started. It really is the best one out there. Thanks so much to the author for finally telling it like it is!

  5. I bought the book for my brother who was not too happy with his decision to go to law school. He had started his first year and was really struggling. He hasn’t stopped thanking me. He just finished the year out and he did very well. He said the book saved him and now he loves law school, because the book made him look at the situation realistically and helped him stay focused instead of letting the pressure get the best of him.
