Overview

"Bridging the Gap Between College and Law School can help you make the transition from your college experience to law school learning. Unlike other "introduction to law school" texts, Bridging the Gap offers a different approach because it: explains the "why" of law, providing you with the context necessary to understand why law school is taught in a certain manner; explains the "how" of the law, setting out a step-by-step process that will help you adapt to the law school setting; and explains the "what" of the law, giving you an opportunity to practice the problem solving process by providing numerous exercises in a variety of subject matter areas." Most other "introduction to law school" book only provide general advice. On the other hand, subject specific aids offer only black letter law and some practice problems, but fail to explain the overall context or provide a problem-solving process. Bridging the Gap does all three - it provides the context, the process, and the problems. Written by two law school professors who use these techniques in the classroom every day, Bridging the Gap is an invaluable guide to what really works in law school.
