Summer Updates – For Our Incoming Students

It’s a busy time here at the Gould Law Library. We’re getting ready for orientation for our new 1Ls and looking forward to welcoming all of our students to the library in the Fall with legal research instruction and library services that will help all of you succeed in law school.  We cannot wait to meet our incoming students at Orientation!

Have you heard of the The Law School Guys? They run a website that is made for those going through the exciting yet stressful process of applying to law school, and for those in the equally exciting yet equally stressful process of getting through law school.

One of the resources they offer is a list of recommended books to read before you get here. Two of the books on the list were written by Touro Law Center faculty, who clearly know their stuff. They are:

Mastering The Law School Exam : A Practical Blueprint For Preparing And Taking Law School Exams
By Professor and Director of Academic Development & Bar Programs Suzanne Darrow-Kleinhaus

The law school exam can be a daunting prospect. Professor Kleinhaus takes the uncertainty out of the process by guiding you in “how to do it,” and “how to write it.” Her book will help you learn how to successfully bridge the gap from class to exam. 

Bridging The Gap Between College And Law School : Strategies For Success
By Touro Law Assistant Dean Charlotte D. Taylor & Ruta K. Stropus

Wondering how you can step up your game and translate your success in college to further success in law school? Look no further. This definitive guide, now in its 3rd edition, will help you successfully navigate the educational terrain of law school. 

When you're in the Library during Orientation, please feel free to take a look at these books, available in our print collection.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you all back in the Fall. We’ll be back to post again when the Fall Semester begins.

In the meantime, keep calm and read on.
