Overview

Law School presents six major topics in the first year alone, each with dozens of cases and hundreds of additional sources. For most law students, understanding the meaning of even the most simple of legal concepts results in confusion, frustration, and even failure. Law students are smart, but unfamiliar with the terminology and reasoning of the law, as well as the framework of how each subject fits into a broader legal framework.

In short: how to learn the law in less time and with better retention, comprehension, and genuine understanding.
