Law School Prep Course

Make the most of your investment.
Approach law school with confidence.

You took a course to prepare for the LSAT – a one-day test. It makes sense to take a course to prepare for law school – which is a three-year test!  The LSAT determines what law school you go to. Your performance in law school determines the rest of your life.

Many aspects of your law school and legal career are guided by how well you do your first year.  Some of these things include:

  • Whether you are elected to join law review during your second year (which is a prestigious position that only few are automatically admitted to);
  • Whether you get an internship at a firm or a judicial clerkship (these positions are incredibly competitive, and how your first year grade point average is the largest factor in their decision making process);
  • Whether you retain or obtain scholarships (many law school scholarships are based on academic performance);
  • Whether you are able to transfer to a different law school if you so choose;
  • Whether you are a candidate for the On Campus Interview* season your second year (which is heavily dependent on your first year grades as there are GPA cutoffs);
  • What job you have after law school (if you want the option to work at a big firm, excelling your first year of law school is an absolute must); and
  • Whether you pass the bar exam (many students do not realize that 80% of what is on the bar exam is taught your first year of law school, so how you do your first year often affects whether you pass or fail the bar exam).

Basically, your first year is extremely important! Not only that, but competition to be at the top is fierce. Anxiety runs rampant. And students feel a lot of pressure very quickly.

A high-quality law school prep course can help ease pressure, lower anxiety, and give you the confidence that you are doing everything you need to be doing from day one law school.

Our Law School Preparatory Course is designed by Ms. Ashley Heidemann who graduated as the #1 law student in her class of over 200 students In this course, she reveals the secrets were essential to her success in law school. 

Much of the widely spread advice about how to do well in law school (e.g. “read every case” “brief every case”) is actually misguided. In this course, we teach you the time-tested strategy that helped Ashley Heidemann to graduate as the #1 student. We tell you exactly what to do – and what not to do – if you want to not only succeed but excel in law school.

Why should I take this course? 

For many reasons.

  1. First, your first-year (“1L”) law school grades are the most important. Only a small percentage of students receive “A”s and thus, high grades mean a lot. Many employers decide who to interview for summer internships solely based on first-year grades. And many of those summer internships turn into full time jobs for law students after graduation.   Further, whether you get onto law review, or get offered a competitive judicial clerkship, or are able to interview for a great internship, or compete for great 2L scholarships– is all dependent on your 1L grades!
  2. Second, you will spend a lot of time, energy, and money on law school. It is well worth it to figure out how to do it right from the very beginning.
  3. Further, this course will help ease any anxiety you may have about your 1L year and help you approach law school with confidence.  You will enter law school armed with a time-tested approach from a student who graduated #1 in her class.
  4. Another huge bonus of taking this course? It will help you pass the bar exam! The material that is tested most heavily on the bar exam is the material that you are taught your first year of law school. If you go in to law school knowing exactly how to master that material, you will pass the bar exam much more easily than your peers that did not learn the material their first year. The #1 regret that most bar exam students have is that they did not learn the material better their first year of law school. This course will save you time, money, and frustration later on.
