Description

Hard-Nosed Advice from a Cranky Professor is a must-read for any new law school student who wants to be successful both in and out of the classroom. The book provides advice from the most valuable source: the law professor. It gives a no-nonsense, hard-nosed approach to advising students on what they must do to succeed. The advice is provided in a light-hearted and humorous manner, which makes the book a quick and easy read for any law student.

The book’s practical, hands-on approach to learning helps students master the most essential skills needed in law school, including briefing cases, outlining, taking exams, meeting professor expectations, and many more. The authors provide step-by-step instructions and concrete examples to help students navigate each skill. The book's user-friendly style and wealth of examples are its greatest assets.

In this new, updated edition, the authors enhance each topic by simplifying the approach even further and providing additional hypotheticals to turn the abstract into the concrete. The second edition includes new examples of case briefing, outlining, exam writing, and bar essays, and also includes an entire chapter dedicated to the skill of legal writing. In this new chapter, the authors transform a complicated writing course into a simple, step-by-step guide that makes legal writing attainable for any law student. With detailed explanations, examples, tips, and insights, this book is a tool no first-year law student should do without.
