Summer Reading for New Law Students

Welcome back for the summer semester to all of our continuing students - and welcome to all of our 1Ls starting this summer! We hope all of our students are beginning a wonderful and educational summer. We're also looking forward to welcoming 1Ls in August. We can't wait to meet you!

For our 1Ls - have you heard of the The Law School Guys?  One of the resources they offer is a list of recommended books to read when you begin law school. 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  - Call No. KF283 .D37 2007
By Professor and Director of Academic Development Suzanne Darrow-Kleinhaus
The law school exam can be a daunting prospect, and students can be unsure or overwhelmed in preparing for exams. 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 along the way to learning how to “think like a lawyer” and also how to successfully bridge the gap from class to exam.

Bridging The Gap Between College And Law School: Strategies For Success - Call No. KF283 .S77 2014
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 will help you successfully navigate the educational terrain of law school, including how to take notes differently, prepare for class differently, and prepare for exams differently than you did in college.

We’ll post again soon.

In the meantime, keep calm and read on.
