Law School Preparation

You’ve spent a great deal of time and energy to get into the law school of your choice. Now that you are admitted, get a leg up on law school with individualized one-and-one coaching.

Law school is tough and the stakes are high. First-year students typically spend upwards of twenty hours per week on reading alone.* Grades for 1Ls are instrumental in hiring and career placement. With Pre-L, you can ensure that you are ready to hit the ground running on day one. Pre-L spots are limited to ensure that students receive individualized attention.

  • Learn the elements of a case brief, and practice creating their own briefs
  • Read and dissect law school exams
