Tutoring for Law School Students
Performing well during your first year of law school can have long-lasting consequences. Law reviews and other journals typically make their membership decisions based on first-year grades and tryouts. Law firms may emphasize first-year—or even just first-semester—grades in offering summer associate positions.
Meanwhile, these outside decision-makers are, in turn, shaping your job prospects after law school. For instance, making law review may have a lasting effect on your competitive standing in the job market for the duration of your legal career.
Finally, the first-year experience can impact your own attitude toward law and a legal career, perhaps leaving you feeling confident and excited or frustrated and self-doubting. For all these reasons, having a great first year of law school is crucial.
LEX Law School Tutoring and First-Year Law Students’ Exam (“Baby Bar”) Tutoring
LEX offers private tutoring for students who want to take advantage of the opportunity that first year represents. A LEX tutor is available to work one-to-one with students in each of the following classic first-year subjects:
- Civil Procedure
- Criminal Law
- Constitutional Law
- Legal Writing
- Exam Prep
- Case Briefing
- Outlining (and not outlining)
As in the LEX BarRev bar review program, Lex first-year tutoring emphasizes work on the fundamentals that deliver points on exam day. Specifically, the LEX approach helps students hone their academic essay writing skills so that they are in position to write authoritatively on any exam topic. LEX tutors also address reading comprehension and text analysis skills in the context of both written essay exams and multiple-choice exams. Finally, LEX tutors engage students in one-to-one dialogue regarding substantive law so as to facilitate a student’s understanding of and fluency in the underlying subject matter. Tutoring sessions are scheduled individually for the student’s convenience, and session content is designed collaboratively with the student so as to focus on producing results in the form of higher first-year grades.
