Law School Survival Tips

We at Gould Law Library are excited to welcome the 1L students who are beginning their law school journey at Touro Law Center this week. To aid you in your transition to law school, we have compiled a list of links to information that will help you navigate the first year of law school.

Both Westlaw and Lexis have guides to law school survival as well as outlines for first year courses. The Westlaw guide is entitled “Law School Life” and the Lexis guide is called “Get a Head Start on Law School.” Westlaw provides Black Letter Outlines and Lexis has Area of Law Outlines.

The American Bar Association has also published an informative law school survival guide, “How to Survive the First Year of Law School.”

Finally, a Study Guide for 1L Courses is posted on our website. It provides links to all of the study aids and treatises for 1L courses that are available at Gould Law Library.

We wish you the best of luck and much success in law school and your legal careers!
