Once you enter law school, you
will quickly discover that the educational process differs
greatly from what you experienced as an undergraduate.
First-year students typically take a set of core courses
throughout the first year. Most law schools generally
require all students to take courses in civil procedure,
constitutional law, contracts, criminal law, legal writing
and research, property law, and torts. In the second and
third years, students usually enjoy a wide discretion in
their choice of courses, and many second- and third-year
students will also participate in clinics and other
practical learning opportunities. The Socratic method is
still common in many first-year law school classes, but some
advanced subjects are more conducive to use of the problem
method, role-playing, and treatment of material in either a
lecture or seminar format.
Law school may be a foreign experience for you, but you do
not have to go through it alone. AmeriBar has been
helping students with their legal education for several years.
