Starting Off Right in Law School
Law Preview, together with numerous law schools, law firms, Fortune 500 companies and bar associations, has created a partnership to improve the academic performance of first-year law students. These sponsoring organizations fund full scholarships for incoming law students to attend a Law Preview summer session so that they can learn from law school professors and attorney lecturers what to expect and how to succeed in law school. Some sponsors also make further investments by mentoring scholarship recipients throughout their 1L year.
Law Preview (the nation's largest law school prep course) has teamed up with Lexis Nexis, one of the world’s leading online research providers, to provide Law Preview Scholarships to select members of our entering class. Lexis Nexis has generously agreed to help entering students prepare for the unique challenges they will face during their 1L year at NESL by paying the cost of tuition for a law school prep course. Visit the following URL to see if you meet the scholarship criteria: http://lawpreview.barbri.com/scholarships/.
Enrollment in a Law Preview class is completely optional; we cannot predict how valuable this opportunity might be. However, we wanted you to be aware of this opportunity because some students have asked about summer preparation programs prior to starting law school. According to Law Preview, the organization that runs this program, students from elsewhere who have enrolled in this particular program in the past have found it helpful with their transition to law school (see here).
