Looking for some no-nonsense, practical advice on what law professors expect of their students? Then check out Hard-Nosed Advice From a Cranky Law Professor: How to Succeed in Law School, which was recently added to the library’s reserve collection.
The book is written from a professor’s perspective and offers a blunt but humorous take on what students need to do to succeed in law school and beyond. It covers topics like briefing cases, outlining, taking exams, journals and clinics, how to get letters of recommendation, clerkships, and preparing for the bar exam. Each chapter of the book is written in the form of a class lecture.
