Frequently Asked Questions

that face every new law student, with the emotion and
stories that bring the experience to life for the reader!”

Each year, law schools graduate more students than there are
practicing lawyers. Why? Because most prospective students
have unrealistic expectations and preconceived notions of
what law school and the legal profession are really all
about. Many enter law school expecting wealth, prestige or
the exciting lives of the fictitious attorneys on Law and
Order and The Practice without ever considering the very
real pressure, competition, workload, and commitment
involved. This book shatters the myths and hype surrounding
law school and the practice of law by educating the reader
about the actual challenges and realities encountered.
This insightful and often humorous guide encourages
prospective students to take personal inventories of
themselves in order to decide prior to entering law
school whether their expectations about being able to meet
the challenges are realistic. The reader is taken on a
guided tour through the hallowed halls of legal
indoctrination, from the decision-making process through all
of the unexpected pitfalls and stresses of law school life.
Law School 101 fills in the gaps about the state of mind
that is required for success in law school. It allows the
reader the opportunity to see things in terms that are not
only coherent, but also enjoyable. While it is extremely
informative, it is light and easy to follow.
