Law School is Easier than Undergrad with Case Briefs, Law Outlines, and Exam Writing Products

What Case Briefs, Law Outlines, Flash Cards
and Law School Exam Writing Products Are Best For You. * There are many different types of case briefs,
law outlines, law school exam writing products and flash cards that you use.
* This lecture will give you focus as to which type is best for you. Paul Owen here for Law School Success Frequently
Asked Questions and Questions You Should Ask. I am writing this series of lectures for the
simple purpose of giving you a solid foundation for what you need to do in law school to become
successful. You will save time, money, and effort and I always promise to be completely
truthful with you in everything that I convey to you and the information and secrets that
we talk about. Law school can be difficult, law school can
be hard work, or law school can be very easy. Do not make it hard on yourself. You are in the right place to become a law
school success. Frequently Asked Question #7 What study guides and aides should I use? This is our most subjective lecture mainly
because people learn different ways. Different things register with different types of people.
You may be an audio person, you may be the kind of person who has to write everything
down, or you maybe the person who likes flashcards, or maybe you are the type of person that likes
complex outlines. • Flash Cards
720 Series Flash Cards – Law in a Flash As far as hardcopy flashcards there are the
720 Series Flash Cards and there is Law in a Flash. Generally, Law in a Flash ask leading
questions. A good example is: Does this contract present an offer? Yes or no is the answer.
You could flip a coin and get it right half the time. We don’t necessarily think that’s
any good. The 720 cards are hard to answer. You can’t answer them unless you know the
material. The problem is 720 people don’t like shipping hard copy cards because all
their products are digital inside the Rom LawTM product. They will ship hard copy versions
but it is vastly cheaper to get the digital ones. • Law Outlines
Gilberts – Emanuel – Foldeez There’s about 20 different types of outlines.
We’ve only listed three here for the reason that we can explain the types the each are.
Emanuels; we don’t consider them law outlines. An 800 page dissertation on con law is not
a law outline. It is a mini-hornbook. It’s almost impossible even to take the subsections
of their law outlines and turn them into an exam writing outline that you can use right
away. A Gilberts law outline is somewhere in between.
The best part about Gilberts is you can take the material out of it remove excerpts and
put them into your own law outline. They also have large banks of Q&A in the back which
are very very good. As we told you before in other lectures, Q&A can substitute for
case briefing. This cuts short the amount of time you need to learn the application
of the law. This type of law outline and there are many types of these, there is not just
the Gilberts, is very good. The Foldeez are strictly law school exam writing
outlines. Here it is, here’s everything you need to memorize. Here’s your exam writing
definitions; go for it. You can actually memorize these outlines and if you do, you do quite
well. • Audio Lectures
Gilberts – Sum and Substance – MP3 Don’t ever buy an audio lecture for any reason
if you are going to listen to it at home. You will fall asleep. I guarantee you. I’ve
tried to do it. I know other people have tried to do it. They listen to it and you are self-
hypnotized and you are gone. All of a sudden you wake up and the MP3 player is still playing
and it’s two hours down the road. If you drive around during the day, you drive to
school 20 minutes to and 20 minutes from that’s 40 minutes of wasted time. Yes, you can put
all your lectures into your car radio and listen to the stuff and actually learn something. Gilberts Legend Series is a medium level product.
Sum and substance has the most titles. The MP3 Law Leectures have the least. They only
have 6 titles with their MP3 Exam Writing Lecture. But the advantage of these is they
have a book that comes with each lecture. They are also 11 hours of lectures. These
are heavy duty lectures in MP3 format. The main advantage, no matter whose audio lectures
you use is to make sure you are not sitting at home and listening to them. If you’re running,
if you’re jogging, if you’re driving around, great. These are fantastic. • Exam Writing Aids and Seminars
Exam Writing I-IV- MP3 Exam Writing Crunch Time – LEEWS – Fleming’s There are books like Exam Writing 1-4. Flemings
also has books that are good. These two are just as good as each other. The main advantage
in the Exam Writing against the Flemings is real simple. Exam Writing 1-4 have lots of
sample questions that you can write on. So if you need to do 30 contracts exams that’s
where you find them. There’s exam writing lectures. There is the
MP3 Exam Writing lecture. There’s the LEEWS. There’s live lectures. LEEWS is about the
only person that gives live lectures anymore. We question the sufficiency of any live lecture.
Here’s why; you only learn 10 to 15% of the material the first time you hear it and
that’s even at a alive lecture. So what good is a live lecture if you’re only walking out
the door knowing 15% of the material you are supposed to know. You have to do the lecture
again two weeks later. We believe that you should do the MP3 and listen to the lecture
over and over and over again until you’ve done it eight, nine, ten times. In the two-week
period in between you’re actually doing the materials. You’re actually doing what it tells
you to do. The next time you listen to it you will hear things you never heard before.
That’s because you’re actually doing stuff and you’re having trouble with filling in
the blanks. All of a sudden with the need to fill in the blanks you actually hear the
answers in the lecture. I guarantee you. Exam writing is a skill. Going to a live lecture
30 days before the exam and while anything helps in that 10 to 15% boost will help you
four weeks before the exam. But are you going to learn the skill of exam writing four weeks
before the exam? The resounding answer is no, because it takes up to a full year. All
these products are fundamentally good. They all have their advantages. • Bar Review
Sign up and get materials Bar Reviews will try to get you to sign up
in the first year of school for $100. They will get you to sign up for a $2500 bar review
that you need 3 years later. You are going to new a bar review if you don’t study or
follow the M.A.D.TM study method. (Memorize, Apply, Dissertate) If you study the M.A.D.TM
study method you will have no problems with any bar exam in this country. The M.A.D.TM
study method was developed as a response to the California State Bar that we used to use
help students get through the California bar. It’s the hardest part exam in the country
They try to trick you into selecting the wrong answer. They try to trick you into answering
the essays wrong. The issue is whether you know the law. If you do, you get to pass the
exam. If you don’t you fail period. That’s why so many people fail the California bar.
They don’t know the law. The Dean of Stanford University Law School failed the California
bar when she took it in all arrogance when she assumed the position as the Dean of Stanford
University Law School. We will talk about a little disingenuous thing,
Kaplan owns its own school. They own their own law school. It is an online law school.
They have lots of medical doctors that go into their online law school. Their pass rate
at the California baby bar (FYLSE) is pathetic. It rotates between 25 and 35% of their students.
That’s terrible. That pass rate tells you how great the bar review is when they only
get 25- 35% of their students through that exam. Be wary of these bar review things. I am not
saying not to do them but if you follow the M.A.D.TM study method, 80-90% of people that
use M.A.D.TM through law school don’t do bar-reviews. And if you need to do a bar review, buy the
stuff used. Instead of paying $2,500 you can pay $25-30 bucks for all the books used. You
can buy that stuff used. You can go over the materials yourself for $25-30 versus 2,500.
Me, I am going with $25 or 30 and will study a little bit harder and get better grades
in law school, all the way through law school. • Study Groups We told you before in other lectures; don’t
join a study group unless… Well if you did join a study group even if you are not doing
the M.A.D.TM study method guess what? Your study group people and partners can share
the cost of all the these materials without violating copyrights. You could buy one used
box of flashcards and pass around and see if it does you any good. You can buy certain
outlines used, if you can get them. If not, you can all share the cost of a new one. You
can get an MP3 exam writing lecture and can all listen to it and pass it to the next person
for the next day to listen to it. That does not violate copyrights and it keeps the costs
down. This is our most subjective lecture. I talked
about some advantages of products and some pitfalls of others. I talked about flashcards,
outlines, audio lectures, exam writing lectures and bar reviews and the cost savings advantae
of the study group in trying to get study aids to help. Paul Owen here for law school success. Frequently

  1. You suggest in your videos that law schools and law professors are "out to get you". They only teach you a part of what's needed to be a lawyer, they mislead you about proper study methods. I'm open to these kinds of statements, but could you substantiate them? What part of the law does law school not teach you? And what's so bad about the Socratic method? Also, what would law schools and law professors gain from purposefully misleading you?


  2. As a second year law student, I can speak to this. The information presented here is quite accurate. Case-study methods are used to help people understand legal reasoning. They are also a convenient way for law professors to avoid significant class preparation time. It is much harder to lecture for an hour than be a discussion moderator. Memorize the law (using a good outline/mind map), learn to write tight analysis of the issues, and practice, practice, practice writing model exams and MBE's.

  3. It's very important to make use of the time that one is probably doing menial tasks such as driving or doing the dishes or whatever.

  4. Study groups that consist of dedicated individuals can be a great way for students to study and challenge each other.
