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 only attending lectures, reading casebooks, and drafting course outlines. Instead, Law School rewards students who use those resources to build strong analytical, writing, and project management skills. Recognizing the need to develop those skills might be the most challenging aspect of legal education.

Academic and professional success depends largely on bridging learning gaps. Top grades are earned by students skilled at thinking and writing like a "lawyer." But the quality of legal writing instruction varies widely among schools. Even worse, many students lack the critical thinking skills so crucial to doctrinal course success. Consequently, they over-emphasize accumulation of rules over development of analytical skills. Those students suffer the disappointment of grades that don’t match their efforts while 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 method. Our students draft work product that is legally sound, well-organized, precise, unambiguous, and concise. Armed with these skills, they work efficiently and without the confusion and stress that distract so many others. Indeed, these are the "practice-ready" skills employers expect.

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"

•    Purpose and Audience

•    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.
