By Professors Brittany Raposa, Hemanth Gundavaram, and Heather Kenny, Attorney Instructor Sheri Mason, and CEO of LawTutors Tania Shah
What do we know? Our LawTutors Team, still decidedly relatable and hip, have not been 1Ls for a long time. We heard you. You want the real stuff from the people who are in it right now. So, the LawTutors Team gathered data from hundreds of first year law students who had just completed their first semester of their first year of law school and had received their grades to put together this Ultimate Guide.
The purpose of article is to share with you the feedback we received from all of these students on what worked for them (and what did not work for them).
We have shared with you a plethora of guidelines in Parts I, II, III AND IV. Please read on for Part V
There was a true mix of opinions on this topic. Some students who did well did not utilize study groups and plan to use the same strategy. Other students who did well felt that the study groups were helpful. And there were some of you who used study groups and felt they were not helpful.
You should do what works best for you.
If you utilize study groups, you want to make sure you have an action plan and goal for your study group to get the most out of your group sessions (which should include short breaks). For example, you can assign a practice problem to do independently and then meet together as a group to discuss your answers.
