Download 1000 Days To The Bar book, This is a powerful, accessible and practical book that breaks law school learning strategies into understandable, logical and practical steps that maximize the effect of students’ study efforts, and explicitly ties those learning strategies to the strategies practicing lawyers use to understand, analyze and apply legal concepts in the real- life representation of their clients. Students who employ its methods not only improve their law school performances and increase their chances of passing the bar on their first try, but they also come to understand the practical implica- tions of their hard work for the transition into the real world of practice, where clients entrust to lawyers the protection of their rights, their property, liberties, sometimes even their lives. In other words, students will learn how to practice law while pursuing success in studying law.
