Life Hacks for Law School Success

Transcript

00:00
today we’re gonna talk about time
00:01
management hacks in law school
00:03
there is absolutely no substitute for
00:05
hard work in law school but I can
00:07
recommend a few things that will save
00:08
you a hell of a lot of time to work
00:10
smarter instead of harder so stay tuned
00:17
so let’s talk about time management
00:20
hacks for law school things that will
00:22
help you save a huge amount of time so
00:24
that you can do the things that will
00:25
really help on the final exam
00:27
and get you better grades at the end of
00:30
the semester so we want to cut out all
00:33
the busy work possible the first time
00:35
saving tip that I would recommend is to
00:37
get prior outlines get old outlines that
00:40
are specifically tailored for your
00:42
professor you can talk to upperclassmen
00:45
who have had your professor before or
00:48
you can go to outline depot.com outline
00:51
depot.com is great i have no affiliation
00:53
with them but it’s a great website where
00:55
if you upload one outline you’re allowed
00:58
to get a credit to download someone
00:59
else’s outline and because so many
01:01
people have uploaded outlines to their
01:04
database odds are they’re going to have
01:07
a prior outline for your specific
01:10
professor in the class that you’re
01:12
taking so I would recommend getting a
01:13
handful of outlines for your specific
01:16
professor so that you can use those as a
01:18
template to make your own outlines it’s
01:21
it’s no substitute for putting in the
01:23
time learning the law but it can provide
01:25
a great foundation that you can add or
01:27
subtract to it’s the beginning of the
01:30
process that you can use to save a lot
01:33
of time instead of doing it from scratch
01:34
by the same token use commercial
01:37
outlines and case proofs things like
01:39
Emmanuel’s for contracts there are
01:42
commercial outlines in just about any
01:44
class that you can think of they will
01:46
save you a huge amount of time in
01:48
learning the substantive law and
01:50
recently there have been preponderance
01:52
of websites and databases out there that
01:56
will case brief every single case you
01:58
could possibly come across for you it
02:01
can save you a huge amount of time we
02:03
don’t advocate doing any case briefs we
02:04
think they’re a waste of time
02:06
but it’s great to look at other case
02:08
briefs to provide a foundation before
02:11
you read the case it’s
02:12
great to understand what the general
02:15
idea of the case is before you dig into
02:18
your case book and read the case
02:19
yourself tip number three use Westlaw
02:22
Westlaw is great you will use it all the
02:25
time in practice either Westlaw or
02:27
LexisNexis so you might as well get
02:30
familiar with it in law school and one
02:33
of the great things you can do is if you
02:34
don’t want to go the commercial case
02:36
brief route things like Quimby for
02:38
example you can use Westlaw to look up
02:41
the case that your professor wants you
02:44
to read even if the case is old Westlaw
02:47
has an army of reference attorneys that
02:49
summarize every single case you could
02:51
just read through the Westhead notes and
02:54
get a good idea of what the case is
02:56
about and then probably summarizes the
02:58
exact rule of law that you’re going to
03:00
need to learn for the final exam so
03:03
don’t be afraid to use Westlaw it’s not
03:05
cheating it’s a great way to practice
03:08
something that you’re going to use all
03:09
the time in researching in the real
03:12
world tip number four outlined from day
03:15
one this is controversial a lot of
03:17
people wait until the very last few
03:19
weeks of the semester before the outline
03:21
I think that’s a horrible mistake
03:22
if you outline every single weekend you
03:25
synthesize all of the substantive lawyer
03:27
your notes with your commercial outlines
03:30
and you put it into a form that you
03:32
understand you get that work done ahead
03:35
of time it gives you so much more time
03:37
at the end of the semester to do
03:39
practice exams to to memorize the
03:43
black-letter law that you’re going to
03:44
use on the final exams it’s a huge
03:47
advantage that saves you a huge amount
03:49
of time and creates more study time at
03:51
the end of the semester tip number five
03:53
take a course on law school essays there
03:57
are clear strategies for issue spotting
03:59
exams that you can use on any class
04:02
whether it’s an exam for contracts or
04:05
con law or torts or whatever standard
04:08
strategies will work on any issue
04:10
spotting exam legal eagle has a course
04:13
and there are others out there that are
04:14
also very good it saves you a huge
04:16
amount of time because you can learn to
04:19
take law school essays yourself but you
04:22
have to take a number of
04:23
practice exams and often professors only
04:25
give you so many practice exams so it
04:28
can save you a huge amount of time to
04:30
learn the strategies upfront so you
04:32
don’t have to brute-force your way
04:34
through a huge number of practice exams
04:36
because they take hours and hours to get
04:38
through every single practice exam if
04:40
you learn the strategies and start
04:42
taking practice exams at least halfway
04:44
through the semester long before
04:46
everyone else starts taking practice
04:49
exams you will be miles ahead by the
04:51
time the study period rolls around and
04:53
you will save a huge amount of time
04:55
before you have to take your first final
04:58
exam so remember you can learn the
05:01
strategies that go into an issue
05:02
spotting exam in the same way that you
05:04
learn the strategies for reading
05:06
comprehension and logic games in LSAT
05:09
and if you learn those strategies and
05:11
you start taking practice exams sooner
05:13
it will save you a huge amount of time
05:15
and you will be ready for your final
05:17
exams much earlier than everybody else
05:19
and when you’re graded on a curve that’s
05:21
what matters being better than everybody

Law School Transfer Tips

Transcript

00:00
Welcome to Learn Law Better, where today I am going to provide you with the pros and cons
00:04
of transferring to another law school after your first year.
00:08
Stay to the end, and you might change your mind before you pack your bags for another
00:12
law school.
00:20
Hi, this is Beau Baez, and today I want to provide you with some advice on whether you
00:24
should transfer to another law school.
00:27
This is an option that students with top grades have after their second semester of law school.
00:32
If you transfer, you will get a diploma from the law school where you complete your final
00:37
two years and not the law school where you completed your first year.
00:41
Most students transfer to a higher ranked law school based on the U.S. News & World
00:46
Report ranking system.
00:49
First the pros of transferring: you will graduate from a higher ranked law school, which may lead to better
00:55
jobs, clerkship opportunities, and higher salaries.
01:01
The cons are more numerous and complex. One, your current school will likely throw money at you to stay,
01:09
while you will likely pay full tuition at the new school.
01:12
Two, many schools will prohibit you from getting on law review, so those opportunities are now gone.
01:20
Three, there are likely other organizations and activities you may be precluded from participating
01:26
in as a transfer student, such as moot court.
01:30
Four, your GPA will likely not count at the new school, so this means you might not
01:35
be able to get special honors at graduation.
01:39
Four, you will lose your 1L friends and may find it difficult to make new friends at the
01:45
law school.
01:46
After all, most of the friends that you keep in law school and after law school are the ones you made in your first year.
01:53
Five, you may have better job prospects at your current law school as employers look
01:58
to hire the best and brightest from your law school. So keep in mind, stay at your current school you may graduate at the top
02:06
You transfer, you very well might not be at the top
02:09
and you may find it more difficult
02:12
to be in the middle of a class than at the top of the pack.
02:15
Now, let me tell you what I would tell my son or daughter, and what I have told some of my students.
02:21
First, f you can move from a law school outside the Top 14 into the Top 14, then you just do that jump.
02:29
It’s worth making a jump into the top 14, it will open up opportunities for you.
02:35
Now if you are in that position, you are in the Top 14, and you are looking to jump within the 14
02:41
look at how big of a jump,
02:43
Going from school 14 to 12, it’s probably not going to make a difference.
02:49
Now, if you go from school 14 to school 1 or 3, that’s a pretty big jump.
02:56
I still remember my first year at Georgetown, one of my friends did very well in his first year,
03:02
he transferred to Harvard, and he took it.
03:06
That was a good move.
03:08
And, by the way, at the time, Georgetown was ranked #9 in the country,
03:12
But even then
03:13
But a jump from #9 to whatever Harvard is, 1 or 3, 1, or 2 or 3. That made sense.
03:19
Now the more difficult question is when you want to transfer to a law school that is not in the Top 14.
03:26
Some students believe that any upward momentum is great, and will jump from school 27 to
03:33
school 17. By the way, I am just stating random numbers and have no idea what schools have
03:39
those spots this particular year.
03:43
Now unless the transfer is significant, you are likely going to be worse off by moving to a different law school.
03:48
Just bring it to the attention of your current law school, take any additional money that you have and stay at your current school.
03:57
Now as a rule of thumb, unless you are making a jump of 50 or more schools you probably should
04:04
not transfer.
04:06
For those of you at a law school that is ranked below 100, I would recommend that you not jump to
04:12
another law school below a 100.
04:14
So for example, you are at school number 201 and can jump to school 106.
04:21
Trust me, there really isn’t going to be a significant prestige jump and you are likely going to be better off
04:27
staying at your current law school.
04:29
Lawyers and judges do not keep a copy of the U.S. News & World Report on their desks and
04:34
go “wow, you graduated from school number 107. That’s not how it works.
04:40
Now if you do decide to try to transfer to a better school, make sure you get a letter from a professor that
04:46
know you well.
04:48
I helped several of my law students move from a very low ranked law school to Top 14 law schools.
04:56
Lots of students with good grades apply to the Top 14, but only those with great
05:00
letters of recommendation make those huge jumps. I mean I was able to craft the letter
05:06
for these students and able to talk about their integrity, their academic performance
05:11
their character. Thats what those schools want. You need a professor that can
05:15
speak those kind of words if you really want to have a good shot at getting into a Top 14.
05:22
Especially when you are ranked, you know, way at the bottom of the list.

How to Make a Law School Outline

Transcript

00:00
Welcome to LearnLawBetter.
00:01
In this episode I will provide you with some advice on what to include and exclude from your law
00:07
school outlines.
00:08
By following these simple steps you will position yourself to get the highest grades that you
00:12
can by crushing the final exam.
00:21
Hi, this is Beau Baez, and today I want to share with you some tips on how to make a
00:25
great law school outline.
00:28
Your outline is, nothing more and nothing less, than your blueprint for doing well on
00:33
the exam.
00:35
This means understanding law school exam grading, which I cover in detail in the episode called
00:41
“Law School Exam Grading.”
00:43
First, let’s discuss what you should not do when creating an outline.
00:48
A mistake that many law students make is to take their class notes, rearrange them a bit,
00:54
and then place them into their outline.
00:57
That is not an outline, but a rather rearranged notes.
01:01
Also, don’t include facts from a case in the outline.
01:06
The only thing you need in this outline are the rules from the cases.
01:10
So now let’s talk about what should go into an outline.
01:15
The first thing you need is a framework for the course.
01:18
I recommend that you take the table of contents from your assigned book, or the course syllabus,
01:24
and use that as a starting point.
01:26
You might change the format as you go along, but you need to get something to get you going.
01:34
Second, place the rules that you learned into the outline.
01:39
The rules and exceptions to the rules need to be as concise as possible, and written
01:45
in your own words.
01:47
For example, suppose you have a case from 1894 and the case states the rule as follows: the wrong inflicted,
01:55
when the defendant so did with intent, and with force that contacted the victim’s person,
02:02
must result in adequate compensation for that injury.
02:07
Now let’s take that archaic language and write something like this: A defendant’s intentional action
02:13
will result in the defendant paying for all damages. So see what I did, I took
02:18
that old language, we rearranged it and we turned it into something that we can understand today.
02:24
Third, if the professor tells you, or strongly hints that something is going to be on the
02:30
exam, then make a note of that in your outline.
02:34
Fourth, if you know your professor will test you on policy, place the policy arguments in the
02:40
outline.
02:41
More on what to transfer from your class notes in the episode called “Taking Notes in Law
02:47
School: The Content.”
02:48
Fifth, think about the size of your outline.
02:53
Since the outline is the primary tool you’ll be using to crush your final, it has to
02:58
be useable.
03:00
This means short and to the point rule statements that you can use on the exam.
03:05
Think about it.
03:07
You will remember a 15 word rule statement a lot better than a 22 word rule statement.
03:13
Finally, when you have worked as hard as you can and you believe you have the perfect outline,
03:20
then, and only then, look at an outline that someone else created.
03:24
As I noted in my last episode, “Why Create Your Own Law School Outlines,” it is critically
03:31
important that you first work on the outline by yourself because that will help you learn
03:36
the law better.
03:38
When you see differences in the two outlines, don’t just make the changes.
03:44
Think about the differences.
03:46
Ask yourself, why is there a difference?
03:49
You may find that your outline that you wrote is better in a particular area , or, you may find that you missed something.
03:57
When you discover your errors, go back and find out why you made those errors as that
04:02
will reveal gaps in your knowledge, and potentially, in your understanding of the law.
04:08
If you stop and reflect, you will learn the law in a way that will help you get a higher
04:14
score on the exam.
04:17
Those who rely solely, or heavily, on commercial outlines created by others create the illusion that
04:23
they know the law.
04:25
But they are failing to make the connections that are necessary to get high grades.

get into law so tell us how do we
00:45
actually crack that expand which are the
00:47
exams to get into these law school so
00:49
then you look at logic gates in India
00:51
there is an LLB which which runs for
00:53
three years right someone can take after
00:55
their graduation okay the after the 12
00:58
pitch you can get into the integrated
01:00
fine get programs which is right the
01:02
quality is slightly better than the five
01:03
years one okay when they get on straight
01:05
after trial they say almost all the
01:08
ranking it is these five it integrator
01:11
program other one which is like me but
01:13
it’s also the point is less disposable
01:15
to five years idea okay right because
01:17
this are probably kids were very certain
01:20
from an early age they wanted to know
01:22
Chris and straight after 12 they get
01:24
into this dramatic rate so if you look
01:26
at the top schools in the fiber fiber
01:29
category are all the natural law on
01:31
university denying Boswell’s
01:33
I think at this point in time there are
01:35
20 and I also believe that there are
01:37
about four to five schools coming up so
01:39
other set of schools which offer this
01:41
final degree program
01:42
some of them is there is in Maharashtra
01:45
common law college high in Bombay Israel
01:47
also repeated Scooby’s offer you’re
01:49
right there is a single versus law
01:50
school in Poornima name that is a horse
01:53
wireless internet shy other is Dildar
01:55
law school and there are a lot of
01:58
private university is one big University
02:01
but last law school that office is
02:02
people okay
02:03
anyone who looking at the final
02:04
integrated system
02:06
definitely looking at the maximum of
02:09
schools yes and the dream of most
02:13
students get into the top three
02:14
occasions getting into benwolf either
02:16
per week okay okay okay so we are right
02:19
now making your dream come true
02:21
of getting into the top three law
02:23
schools the national law school at
02:25
Bangalore at Calcutta and hydropower so
02:28
that’s almighty – from Bhopal we don’t
02:30
like foreign students exams in agar
02:34
Mumbai single I think I think if you
02:36
made it to the top ten what are the
02:38
deeper sales to get into the talking
02:40
stops you’re gonna help us today to
02:42
catch them so I’ll make sense of how one
02:45
can go about getting the top CR
02:47
obviously I can’t guarantee anything so
02:49
the process eligibility is like you just
02:50
sort of manage to clear a pile like 60%
02:52
also 45 okay okay daddy is the 12th of
02:59
kr so and eventually the selection is
03:02
the only taste on the let’s go okay
03:05
which I this is so important whatever
03:07
but anyone making any incidence that
03:10
therefore I will not studies for methyl
03:12
xanthine would in absolute crisis
03:14
tomorrow after getting into Bangalore
03:16
you might want to do your a little
03:18
simplistic Howard actually gonna dad I
03:21
mean perfect and CEO in your sign right
03:25
in earlier today that I am is now
03:27
considering temp until score as well
03:29
okay so sleep ready for your trust I
03:31
think we’ve established that now let’s
03:34
look this talk about there is an
03:36
admission is solely based on with
03:38
classrooms I get a high score in the
03:40
class is making okay
03:42
now the second thing is the value so
03:45
there are both I think was fortified
03:46
fifty thousand students
03:48
right all over India all over the
03:50
Indians I’m one piece of Emma’s also
03:52
have out of this plenty laughing law
03:53
school so the national law was in Delhi
03:56
can make their own tears right and the
03:58
one that is started recently Shimla they
04:01
also collecting their own tests okay
04:02
also the common law and machine test is
04:04
further 18 national laws of cases common
04:07
problem okay so the total number of
04:09
seats available and all these I’m
04:10
including all category fees are about
04:13
1,400 okay had you 11500 okay I am the
04:17
general category C’s is what’s holding
04:19
that’s it so literally 40-plus thousands
04:23
when I’m when I’m talking about the top
04:25
three schools I go to sleep earlier okay
04:27
200 oh boy
04:30
so when you have 40,000 pieces they
04:32
prepare all wanting to be in that
04:34
triangle all wanting even if you wanna
04:36
top 10 schools you’re looking around
04:37
with what five hundred percent isn’t
04:40
yeah so you have to be the top one
04:42
person big elastic yeah people say
04:45
believe that that is unfair even in
04:46
let’s say JD duties doctor in the India
04:49
in the US and someone wants to get the
04:51
Ivy League school you still have to
04:53
limit of two percent right
04:56
for the next question is what is the
04:58
test the test is not 200 questions of
05:02
Keynes each question is one mark okay
05:04
and there is negative money
05:06
oh so there’s also one month and four
05:08
minus point of a negative market – under
05:10
the questions 200 mouthing maximum and
05:14
what is a good school
05:16
what is a good really good it’s a good
05:18
score in 2008 was what one because 150
05:23
good score in 2011 was about 130 would
05:26
score in 2014 was a book 1:05 all
05:30
boutique or in 2015 by thickness 50
05:34
wasn’t about 2016 was 155 oh so there’s
05:39
no such all body week under standard
05:41
good score is based on what the best
05:44
students are getting in ice and when the
05:46
test becomes difficult then naturally
05:48
the scores comes down home on the tests
05:51
become easy the school from what I can
05:53
see
05:54
good score top 1% then you’re barely
05:57
getting a hundred and five on a total of
06:00
it’s really really difficult example
06:02
there are these years when they examine
06:04
you
06:04
so getting a score about 160 170 would
06:07
have given it a battle and there were
06:10
years when the examples difficult to
06:12
track but let’s average it out for a
06:14
Seco for discussion okay Nautilus mean
06:16
let’s say they don’t have 140 145 okay
06:19
majority all the exams
06:20
barring this one a few of them song
06:22
majority of exams in the days of 145 Cal
06:25
is a constant okay so these are now
06:26
let’s take a look at these 200 awesome
06:29
questions I know once we establish that
06:32
we need two different Portuguese yes and
06:34
what is the composite of to the quest
06:36
of the stock five years okay English
06:39
okay general knowledge engine elevators
06:43
okay mathematics when they’re a logical
06:48
decent illegal this okay English forty
06:51
questions general knowledge a few jungle
06:54
50 questions mmm-hmm mathematics little
06:58
bit of 20 questions a spoon okay and
07:00
then you have logical reasoning which is
07:02
octopi season I’m legal these minutes
07:05
fifty persons so you want to put the
07:07
toll highest number of question are
07:09
legal reasoning algae activity that is
07:12
hundred after paper and then comes this
07:15
forty forty it is English and logical
07:19
ignorant xx nice let’s look at how do we
07:22
reach a score of 140 145 there are five
07:25
sections if you want to score of let’s
07:28
say one occupy with negative marking we
07:30
can say that let me say it let’s look at
07:32
150 50 is 150 person I should not be
07:35
doing right now 50 divided by five is
07:37
ten let’s the more painful which that’s
07:39
a good way to look at all okay so
07:40
therefore my target is out in English I
07:43
have to look at 20 out of it okay now
07:45
let’s get a little deeper into what kind
07:47
of English question
07:52
and one one should faces with caution
07:55
hmm
07:56
because at the end of the day we are
07:57
looking at what happened in the past we
08:00
still have to figure out whether what by
08:02
Allah these are the questions okay one
08:04
type of perception of this finger is
08:06
reading comprehension reading
08:08
comprehension so you have you get a
08:10
passage okay these are ten questions and
08:12
everything there is in the end of the
08:13
practice so it’s like knowledge is
08:15
multiplied all right but the second kind
08:17
of person which is also knowledge is
08:18
multiply it is what is known as
08:20
paragraph jumble so go take a paragraph
08:23
they take the four segments from the
08:25
paragraph jumble it anytime to be given
08:27
for option and PC goes right order okay
08:29
so this is about fifteen percent which
08:30
is based on logic right now I’m
08:34
typically remaining 35 is working based
08:36
on valid on the office of the grammar
08:37
vocabulary spelling and there’s some
08:40
time they are falling words oh yeah yes
08:42
in law that is all of you foreign words
08:45
is used what we meet on the centers so
08:48
one is depending upon when you’re
08:50
starting your / right if somebody has to
08:52
decide there is vocabulary so they start
08:54
studying more tender and the worst paid
08:56
to study for family actually mother
08:57
would yeah then you have a six thousand
08:59
word list in probably take about ten
09:01
minutes the word for three four
09:03
different downs of that than sixty
09:05
thousand minutes to put a thousand hours
09:07
now he Blanca Masri I’m learning for
09:09
capillary so it’s like holding the one
09:11
of our tools like 500 days to us per day
09:14
okay one of the work we have done so
09:16
what do you expect as you using the log
09:18
I’m sure that all of this words will be
09:19
something that is over a grammar I am
09:21
hoping that your teacher in your school
09:23
have done a good job you should have
09:24
been a to study it now it is a 15 logic
09:28
bitch left with a crucial hmm because
09:31
that is more they can we cope with back
09:33
taxes and then you can get about 15 from
09:36
the remaining 35 manage about 20 but if
09:40
they want to practice let’s say they’ve
09:41
done their grammar and school they’ve
09:43
done their reading but would you suggest
09:45
any techniques to them in terms of the
09:47
English from so those I will not
09:49
recommend
09:50
technically in the beginning so there
09:52
are techniques available a lot of people
09:53
attic same techniques
09:55
disability incomprehension I am of a
09:57
different opinion the question okay I
09:58
leave the passage actually an answer the
10:00
person back for me will simply read the
10:02
fascism and for example a lot of people
10:04
talk about skimming techniques I had
10:06
really don’t understand if I don’t
10:07
understand the passage mode whiskey I
10:09
think if you look at paragraph example
10:10
eventually understanding a paragraph
10:12
okay and so you have to stop reading it
10:15
reading a lot an evening as a hamburger
10:17
is what is gonna help right are you do
10:20
the illegal so if you are in your little
10:23
standard pick up the habit now okay 2012
10:25
centers and then therefore you cannot be
10:28
some afters your 12 board and then fight
10:30
for one month and find into the schools
10:31
I if you look at the second services
10:36
general knowledge that a disgrace fifty
10:39
the last couple of years most of the
10:41
questions are current offense okay about
10:44
35 or even 40 questions order 50 typical
10:48
in the book though there are mixed lack
10:50
where general static knowledge has been
10:53
asked but then the scores put
10:54
affirmative camera so again you have to
10:57
be aware of what is happening right and
10:59
that again starts early so the pathway
11:01
of
11:02
doing the thing is mugging right okay so
11:07
rule-bot but the best football award
11:09
that Bernardo Christian of the negative
11:14
marking your answers it all right should
11:16
be going it’s know what I’m saying is
11:18
that I think DC general knowledge in
11:20
works if it possibly thought you were to
11:22
get your story and your role involved so
11:24
it’s about making the symptomatic clinic
11:27
number do what they have to do with
11:28
respect to general knowledge there are a
11:30
lot of the exercise okay especially for
11:33
the UTS exam long just amplifies current
11:37
affairs okay a cool one of the tips you
11:39
are available okay and then they give
11:40
daily a taking stuff that causes of
11:43
indicated see into thing obviously then
11:45
donate to some training partners book
11:48
and then they provide all these
11:49
facilities
11:50
okay so that’s what the digital we
11:52
should we should aim for someone as a
11:53
certified forty or fifty these are all
11:56
multiple choice question all these are
11:57
motor only the multiples was presently
12:00
so so there are four answers right so I
12:02
says one of them is there yeah then we
12:05
get you the – now other three gets to
12:07
the minus one so if you analyze the
12:09
previous papers one thing that comes out
12:12
with respect to G tail moves or to the
12:15
question of Indian Affairs
12:16
okay now the order personal neither well
12:18
Indians do something great okay and
12:20
interesting star any stage took in
12:23
initiative in a new scheme that came out
12:25
a few international affairs of some it
12:28
happens a few books that authors have
12:32
picked up okay so you need to understand
12:34
what each state has been doing any
12:36
scheme any initiative in stating what
12:38
any award and when the government is
12:40
very active like I was now that will not
12:43
go into better information specific
12:44
order bit of information it is a study
12:47
so quickly going to mass mass is all
12:53
eight nine ten eleven months okay most
12:56
of the chapters will be automatic okay
12:58
we have a profit of laws simply this
13:00
component is it we know not try it is
13:02
beginning x1 of years Bob right because
13:05
that is 20 questions gone yeah all the
13:08
one that they gave you two other you
13:10
said I’d only twenty LP quality but
13:13
you’re sick do you think that in
13:15
eleventh and twelfth standard they don’t
13:16
necessarily need more have man as a
13:18
subject never goes at all okay they
13:21
don’t need to have mass public school
13:23
all they have to do is decide that they
13:24
have to do something about math right
13:25
I’m done answer that should that you do
13:28
[Music]
13:31
and then you have logic this would be
13:33
something that is completing you right
13:35
unless you like doing a lot of puzzles
13:37
logic is something that you it’s fun
13:39
yeah but this is one of the questions
13:41
people ask me is that you know how do we
13:44
prepare for logic so there are two types
13:47
of logical first one is you have you
13:50
have what is known as analytical deeply
13:52
hmm so they ask you brother and sister
13:55
haven’t done this man’s father is my
13:58
father son who is eternal and then use
14:01
any kind of start with my father son
14:03
would be me and this man’s father is me
14:07
what suppose so that will be one type of
14:10
question this is completely somebody
14:12
asked for series but sometimes they are
14:14
sleeper still is that book there are
14:16
these 10 people sitting on a circle
14:18
arrangements and stops right though
14:21
these are aptitude test which is natural
14:23
ability test but yeah I mean I think I
14:25
refer back to life
14:27
we also you just so handsome when the
14:28
second type of question that I asked you
14:30
verbal ability test in fact an example
14:33
LSAT India which is taken folks in the
14:36
law school right has a whole two
14:39
sections of logical reasoning which is
14:41
this one that I’m gonna explained ok so
14:44
the global recently questions in the
14:46
clip especially as expect students
14:49
evaluate arguments okay
14:51
the first column will stick to one of
14:52
the San Bernardino case ok now if I say
14:54
God exists and you say God did not agree
14:55
we spawn an argument a logical argument
14:59
if someone gives a reason justifying the
15:02
claim okay let me take a simple example
15:04
if someone says the crime date in a city
15:08
as a double right visa use just to find
15:12
the conclusion but let’s say the state
15:14
economy not doing a good job okay
15:16
the crime rate of thing clear is there
15:19
for this government actually blinked
15:20
right which is probably the argument
15:23
given to dismantle today if your mouth
15:26
is under some assumption right also most
15:28
crimes we could report it right so the
15:30
assumption is all crimes of e-report
15:33
right and if I give you situation long
15:35
deal with 100 coins and one kind of the
15:38
proteins right and this year there was
15:39
Ken crimes and welcome to the photo guy
15:43
Reiter has done also understanding the
15:45
Aleutians the Donna Murphy screws okay
15:48
and let me give you one more example
15:50
suitable if I say some a are not B okay
15:53
some way a not being okay can I conclude
15:55
the zombie you are not it okay
15:59
well people will share anything I can do
16:02
that
16:02
but if I say sorry women are not mothers
16:05
yeah so may or not be there from England
16:07
and on Mother’s yeah they make I don’t
16:09
say it’s a one mother then organ explain
16:12
a lot of people feel that logic is
16:14
something that has to be genetically
16:16
predisposed right what actually log it
16:19
comes under the subject and the
16:21
philosophy and it can be learned
16:23
okay okay one of the biggest myths that
16:27
people say that the oil is someone who
16:29
is a mobile Bui
16:30
yeah because we’ve often a listen I said
16:32
this in my previous intervals of parents
16:34
tell their child that you argue we’re
16:36
even so that that’s not what happened oh
16:38
yeah so which means I think therefore
16:39
the most urban policy that even boy with
16:41
me it is every to listen understand what
16:44
argument Islamic so that is and that
16:47
committed so only thing is that this is
16:48
something that people will not have done
16:49
trying because are calling
16:52
semolina price comparison logic
16:54
absolutely and won’t take much time so
16:57
but you have to study so that is another
16:59
stuff you have different areas but it
17:01
can be done so it can be done
17:05
but the last section is legal the
17:07
reasoning which typically has two types
17:10
of question okay one is legal detail
17:14
when did the call to attention me and
17:17
okay so that will be lighted legal okay
17:20
but the majority of the session and what
17:21
is known as legal is easily okay we’re
17:24
all rule open law is given right it
17:28
could be anything if you intentionally
17:29
feel someone is murdered okay and then
17:32
the fan consumer could be any simple
17:34
fact of a dope our provocation kills it
17:39
not try is it mother you say then you
17:41
apply that the rule right okay and then
17:44
answer the question a legal language
17:46
could be confusing right but the skill
17:48
set required is one that of reasoning
17:50
okay one of those problem that sometimes
17:52
happens is because the principle given
17:55
all is rule of law and the language is
17:57
some kind of miracle to understand the
18:00
sentence keeps on going with lot of
18:02
comma and goes for about three four okay
18:06
– and then that becomes an issue
18:07
whatsoever as a little bit of practice
18:09
should should be done so these are the
18:12
five areas that one needs to study for
18:16
the plan hey I hope you enjoyed this
18:18
first part of our two-part series called
18:21
how to crack the law entrance exams in
18:23
India do look out for part two which is
18:26
solely dedicated to how to prepare for
18:28
the law entrance exam where we talk
18:30
about scheduling your study hours how
18:33
many hours to devote to each section and
18:35
how many practice tests to take we also

Things I Wish I Knew Before College/Law School

Transcript

00:19
one of the first things I learned in my
00:21
freshman year is that you really need to
00:23
study every single day even if there is
00:26
no big test or assignment around the
00:28
corner ravine your law classes daily is the
00:30
only way to make sure you are
00:32
strengthening your knowledge on whatever
00:33
you are learning as well as filling in
00:35
any gaps on an on material that was
00:37
lectured before for weeks and months I
00:41
was sure that people who told me I
00:42
needed to study every day or just very
00:44
unorganized people or they were
00:46
frightening me on purpose however if you
00:49
are taking a course having information
00:51
like law you will quickly understand
00:53
that unless you’re amazingly
00:54
intelligence you probably won’t be able
00:56
to remember every single detail that was
00:58
lectured in multiple subjects and in the
01:02
end you are also tested on the small
01:04
details and not only on the big overall
01:06
scheme of things for each class if I
01:09
could go back to my first semester I
01:11
would really push myself harder and
01:13
organize my days to be able to review my
01:15
previous classes being a coffee hater
01:21
throughout high school I was always sure
01:23
that I would never like the taste of it
01:25
in my life
01:26
however as soon as I got into my second
01:29
year of college I found out that the
01:31
only way to survive a few of my classes
01:33
was to drink and expresso beforehand my
01:36
addiction to coffee began as a need to
01:38
survive but I really ended up liking it
01:40
the more I drank it
01:47
one of the things the one told me before
01:49
going to law school was the ridiculous
01:51
amount of money I would spend on
01:53
textbooks every single semester every
01:56
one of my classes has one to two
01:59
mandatory textbooks plus statute law and
02:02
then a bunch of optional readings that
02:04
most of the time you will end up buying
02:05
because they are nowhere to be found in
02:07
the library also because law is
02:10
constantly being developed and changed
02:12
buying second-hand books is not a good
02:15
idea most of the times because most of
02:17
the legal references they make are
02:19
probably outdated I remember that in my
02:22
first year of law school I refused to
02:24
buy most of the textbooks the
02:25
professor’s required
02:27
I tried my hardest to study with my
02:29
class notes and that ended up as
02:31
expected in poor grades the problem with
02:34
law is that 50% of our grade and work is
02:37
made at home in class the professor
02:39
doesn’t lecture all of the material you
02:41
need to learn they just summarize the
02:44
materials best as they can and highlight
02:46
a few things however in the final exam
02:48
all those details and footnotes in the
02:50
textbooks will prove really useful to
02:52
solve the cases and if you didn’t invest
02:55
in your textbooks you will not be able
02:57
to use that information that takes me to
03:00
the next point for me the best method to
03:03
learn is preparing all classes
03:05
beforehand bit lectures or discussion I
03:08
only found out this in the end of my
03:10
second year in college and I think it
03:12
makes a big difference in your overall
03:14
performance in class basically if you
03:17
anticipate most of what is going to be
03:19
taught in your class you’ll have most of
03:21
the work done for that specific group of
03:23
topics or information and by taking your
03:26
own notes to class and complete them
03:27
with what the professor is lecturing
03:29
you’ll be able to enforce your knowledge
03:31
on subject finishing an incomplete
03:34
argument that you’ve written down and
03:36
also letting you participate in class
03:38
ask questions on the thematic and
03:40
discuss it with your professor and
03:42
colleagues also preparing classes
03:45
beforehand will let you organize your
03:46
time better scheduling a certain time to
03:49
prepare certain class and you’ll have
03:51
much more attention in class because you
03:53
are
03:53
– worried about writing everything down
03:55
because we already have a complete batch
03:58
of notes unfortunately I found it’s
04:01
almost impossible to prepare classes and
04:04
do all these own work while I was
04:05
handwriting my notes if I could turn
04:08
back in time and change something during
04:10
my time in college I would certainly
04:12
stop spending so much time making
04:14
everything pretty and start typing it
04:16
all I am a big fan of handwriting notes
04:19
I love pen stationery and also the
04:21
handwriting in itself it’s so much more
04:24
fun and dynamic than typing things like
04:27
robots however when I started getting an
04:30
excessive workload insisting on
04:32
handwriting all of my preparatory notes
04:34
than completing them by hand in class
04:36
and also solve and summarize scale oh my
04:39
head was hurting my grades my social
04:42
life and my stress levels so I had to
04:45
make the hard decision to give up on all
04:47
my pretty stationery inside everything
04:49
away I still han writes a few notes
04:52
especially when I use the column method
04:54
that you can see in one of my videos
04:55
listen down below but I’m so happy now
04:58
that they’ve made the exchange I can be
05:00
much more productive and organized and
05:02
save tons of time for all the other
05:04
things I enjoy doing instead of spending
05:06
my evenings writing things down finally
05:10
and I think this is the most important
05:12
piece of advice I can give you some
05:15
people enter college with a very
05:16
specific mindset on what they want to do
05:19
with their lives probably you already
05:22
thought about a certain career and are
05:24
choosing classes that you think will
05:26
help down that career path however never
05:29
close your eyes to all the options that
05:31
will be laid out for you in my
05:33
experience I entered law school thinking
05:35
about the very specific thing that I
05:37
wanted to pursue as soon as I got into
05:40
my second year and starting studying
05:42
contract law I was sure that I finally
05:45
changed my mind and was now sure that
05:47
all I wanted was contract law then I had
05:50
tax law and thought that tax law was it
05:52
and then I made an internship in
05:54
intellectual property law and also fell
05:56
in love with it so it’s okay to change
05:58
your mind along the way you are not less
06:01
worthy of college just because you’re
06:02
still not sure
06:03
what you want to do career-wise just
06:06
make sure that you research on different
06:08
career paths and take all opportunities
06:09
to know new things and meet new people
06:12
internships and other short-term
06:14
opportunities like job shadowing
06:17
programs are great ways to understand if
06:19
you fit in specific area you’re thinking
06:21
of pursuing or if in real life it has
06:24
nothing to do with you I hope you’ve
