Boot Camp

Train for Law School Success

Law School is a highly competitive adventure. Smart preparation is key to success. Most students assume that means attending lectures, reading casebooks, and drafting course outlines. Instead, Law School rewards students who demonstrate strong analytical and writing skills. But acquiring those skills is not easy.

Few students realize (until it's too late) that academic and professional success depends largely on taking the initiative to bridge learning gaps. Top grades are earned by students skilled at thinking and writing like a "lawyer." Unfortunately, the quality of legal writing instruction varies widely among schools. And many doctrinal professors assume that students have the necessary critical thinking skills needed to distinguish between knowledge of rules and legal analysis. Consequently, students tend to over-emphasize accumulation of rules over lawyering skills. They then suffer the disappointment of grades that don’t match their efforts while career valuable career opportunities slip away.

Professor Levine’s command of the legal writing process made my 1L year a big success. The skills he taught helped me win the First Year Moot Court Competition, earn top grades, and secure an exciting summer associate job. I was fortunate to learn from him.

Lawrite’s “Boot Camp” empowers pre-law and 1L students to compete right out of the gate. We begin by helping students understand the core competencies valued by employers and clients. We then teach a process-oriented approach to legal analysis, writing, and project management. Guesswork is replaced with technique. Our students draft work product that is legally sound, well-organized, precise, unambiguous, and concise. Armed with these skills, they work efficiently by reducing the confusion and stress that distract so many others. Better still, these are the "practice-ready" skills employers demand.

We have more than twenty years of experience training students to achieve lawyering success. That's an easily attainable goal – when taught in a methodical manner. In only five to six sessions, our students learn more from us than most do in an entire Law School writing course, including:

    The Challenge of Law School's Learning Gap

    The Writing "Process"

    The "Three Pillars" of Legal Analysis

    Rule Explanation, Synthesis and Application Techniques

    Stylistic Conventions for the Busy, Skeptical Reader

    Study Skills that Promote Efficient, Low-Stress Learning

Our attorney-tutors conduct training one-on-one by video chat at a time convenient to you. Only a modest amount of non-session work is assigned and individualized feedback is provided. Most students complete the training in five to six hours. Our hourly fee is $175. Call today for a free consultation.
