Keys to Law School Success
Success in law school is not rocket science, but following a few simple rules helps ensure your peak performance.
1. Go to every class.
2. Read every case.
3. Prepare case briefs.
4. Make outlines and study them.
Law school is challenging and competitive. There are no shortcuts.
It all begins with the case brief.
Preparing a case brief forces the student to sythesize what has been read and enables the student to be confident when called on in class. Following the ProBriefs brief template will help the student draw from the cases what law professors want the student to know and ready the student to be called on in class. Briefing cases is integral to helping the student learn the concepts being taught.
Resist the temptation to "book brief." Students who take the time to synthesize the case into their own words retain more information and will have an advantage at test time, when it counts. Similarly, comercially prepared case briefs can be helpful as a supplement, but there is no substitution for actually doing the work. There are no shortcuts to success in law school.
The ProBriefs platform is designed for flexibility. Each student can define the sections of their case brief template for the level of detail they wish to capture.
Build Your Review List with a click.
As the student enters the details of each case brief, those items can be tagged for later review, and populate an automatic review list that can be printed or viewed online for each course. This can be especially helpful for rules the student will be tested on, or specific details of a case. This method reduces redundant efforts and saves time, the most precious resource to a law student.
Integrated Flash Cards.
Automatically convert review list items to integrated digital flash cards with a click. Flash cards can be organized into folders that each student defines. Flash card categories are particularly useful to group flash cards into chapters or major topics covered in each course. Our export wizard generates an export format that can be imported into popular flash card apps, such as Quizlet.
Organization is Critical to Success.
During the first year of law school it is common for a student to be assigned over 600 cases. The sheer volume of assignments requires organization. The ProBriefs categorizes cases by course and is searchable by the different elements of the case as well as assignable tags. ProBriefs automatically populates lists of cases due so you can easily find and print your briefs before class.
The assignments list can be used to keep track of your assignment and to-do lists so you never miss a deadline. Students can view by class or by due date.
