Performing well during your first year of law school can have some pretty interesting 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. Even one’s peers and family members can get pretty serious about comparing grades.
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.
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 of these reasons, getting off to a good start is crucial. If you would like some additional help in mastering first-year subjects, we offer tutoring in:
- Civil Procedure

Don’t let the pressure and workload prevent you from having a successful first year of law school.
