Bridging the Gap Between College and Law School: Strategies for Success by Ruta K. Stropus, Charlotte D. Taylor

This popular book helps students make the transition from their undergraduate 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 students 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 students adapt to the law school setting; explains the "what" of the law, giving students the opportunity to practice the problem-solving process by providing numerous exercises in a variety of subject matter areas. Rather than giving only general advice, or black letter law and some practice problems for a specific subject, Bridging the Gap provides the context, the process, and the problems. Written by two former law school professors who used these techniques with thousands of students, Bridging the Gap is a guide to what really works in law school.
