Darrow-Kleinhaus’ Mastering the Law School Exam is designed to provide students with a knowledgeable, reasonable, and rational voice to navigate the intricacies of law school exams. The text offers a practical rather than theoretical approach, by including examples that show students precisely “how to do it” and “how to write it.” It examines each type of law school exam, providing examples with detailed analysis of sample answers.
Numerous illustrations in the context of substantive law are included to help students learn to:
Fill the gap between what the professor refers to as learning to “think like a lawyer” and the actual means for doing so
Create a successful path from note-taking, to outlining, to exam writing
Tailor individualized study programs
