Hard does not have to mean overwhelming
Law school is going to be hard, but you do not need to be lost.
This is the mission that drives the services that I offer.
Yes, it is hard for everyone
I remember law school… I spent hundreds of hours in the library during my first few semesters. Like everyone else, I was completely lost as what exactly was necessary to succeed. I read, reviewed, and drafted, day after day and month after month.
I had no time for anything else, and I felt uncomfortable and uncertain about myself the entire time. The curve and the pressure on getting good grades in order to get a good job was overwhelming.
But, there really are strategies for success
I know now that the early semesters of law school were long, confusing, and painful in ways that were not necessary to my success.
It all worked out for me in the end, but it was a long, confusing, and painful process.
Looking back, I realize just how much I could have known upfront to make the process more efficient and simple. It really did not have to be that distressing, and I did not have to feel so incredibly uncertain through every step.
If I had known then what I know now (or even what I had known as a 3L), I could have focused my studies and career development much more efficiently. Like most students, I learned the hard way how to succeed and to find balance in law school.
I could have known exactly what information was necessary to pull from cases, how to write a law school exam effectively, or even how to secure the best summer job for me. And I could have done this all while still having time for myself and while preserving my own sense of internal contentment.
That's why I started this service
I started this service so that I can share all of this wisdom with law students.
This service is a collection of practical services that will help a law student by guiding them through different aspects of the law school experience. I work with students in the areas that they feel will be most helpful to their success, while also helping them determine what these areas may be.
I believe that there are workable strategies that can be applied consistently throughout the law school experience. I share these with students as needed.
There are clear examples of what I can do to help
Do you want to know what is actually necessary to pull from cases and to put in your outlines?
I can guide you through this to create an outline that is exam ready.
Do you need feedback as to whether you are on the right track with your practice exam responses?
I provide detailed analysis and feedback, as well as coaching, to ensure that your answers are as strong as possible.
Do you need help with preparing for interviews for a summer position or OCI?
I’m here as a mock interviewer and to discuss to most frequently asked questions.
Do you just need assurances that you are on the right track and that everything will work out?
I got you. I will give you honest and practical feedback, as well as a healthy dose of encouragement.
The time really is now
I know: You are expected to learn the law at the same time as you learn how to be a law student. This can feel like way too much to do all at once.
I’m here to help you take the edge off how difficult this whole experience can be. I’m here so that you have someone by your side to give you experienced insight and guidance when you need it.
The right guidance can go a long way
The whole experience really can be a lot simpler with just a few hours of the right help
