Overview

As the Director of Suffolk University Law School�s Academic Support Program, Ramy begins receiving phone calls from new 1Ls as early as May. Their common question? "What do I need to do to succeed in law school?" Ramy has written Succeeding in Law School to provide an answer. Just as importantly, the text was also written with the Academic Support Professional in mind. The book is mindful of the rigorous learning environment students face. Each chapter and the accompanying exercises can be completed in a modest amount of time. The book incorporates examples, a few cases, hypotheticals, and exercises so that students can practice their new skills and measure their progress. In addition to students receiving the feedback they crave, the exercises allow professors to assess students� 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 can be an important tool for helping them get the most out of their abilities.
