Overview

In the second edition of Succeeding in Law School, Ramy has updated his simple step-by-step approach to the first year of law school in a way that should help all students achieve their personal best. Just as importantly, this new edition was written with the Academic Support Professional in mind. This edition of the book has several new chapters that are geared toward achieving success both in law school and in the job market. A new chapter on legal analysis addresses one of the most common problems professors see on law school exams—the absence of the counterargument. Since many law students are unaware of the fact that a small error during the application and interview process can derail their chances of landing that dream job, new material on interviewing techniques, creating a writing sample, and writing a resume are now included to help students market themselves to prospective employers. This book gives students the feedback they crave while allowing professors to assess student progress throughout the semester. Whether students are seeking advice in the summer months, or are coming in for help once the school year has begun, this book will help them make the most of their abilities.
