"I thought the entire course was both interesting and helpful. Before this class, I knew next to nothing about what I'd be facing in the classroom, much less what to do to prepare. The 1L course gave me a structured way to attack the material -- from diagrams of case briefs to outlines for my final exams. Additionally, throughout the course you're given helpful tips for what to do outside of the classroom, such as the importance of networking and talking with your professors. I look forward to applying these methods next year!" - Kristie G
