Law School Undercover gets you ready for law school. It prepares you for the LSAT and the best ways to actually get into the schools you want to attend. I did not spend much time reading the "preparation for law school sections" since I am already in law school, but they are there to help you get ready. Professor X does a great job giving you enough information to let you make an informed decision on whether you REALLY want to even go to law school or not. I can tell you, if several of my classmates had read this book before attending class, they would not have wasted thousands of dollars and be in the debt they are in now.
It lets you know what to expect before you get to law school. This book helps you better prepare for class. It helps you take better notes without wasting precious time. The book goes into detail about classes like legal writing and how to do this, and how to do that...It helps you prepare for exams and the dreaded essay questions. There is an art to taking law school exams and Professor "X" shares some of his knowledge to help make this easier for the student. This book also goes into what to expect when you get out of school and different types of careers and what to do while in school to help get those jobs. This is a definite must read in my opinion. I just wish I had it 2 years ago!
I find it hard to write a review these days without referring to Lund's work, as you've no doubt already discovered in the preceding paragraph. But the things that make Lund's work good are apparent in Law School Undercover: an expert author explaining to, rather than just telling, law students and new lawyers how to navigate through the system. Professor X has much in common with Lund, in that to be perfectly blunt, they both "matter" as authors. Without sounding insulting, most law school guide authors don't actually matter. They're "just" law grads, products of the system, explaining what worked and what didn't work while they were going through the system. My own book, "Later in Life Lawyers", suffers from the same inescapable fault in that I was "just" a law grad at the time of writing.Read more ›
One of my favorite parts of the book, and the reason why this book should be read BEFORE LAW SCHOOL, was the section on whether you should go to law school in the first place. It highlights some good points that should be thought about in some serious depth before making the leap.
Perhaps my favorite part of the book was the last few chapters that discussed preparing for your career while in law school--it's a dog-eat-dog world out there and you want to be sure to start preparing now. "Law School Undercover" conveniently addresses several career paths, from being a law professor and working toward that end, to being a practicing attorney. These are things that everyone should be thinking about and preparing for during school, so that it is a seamless transition from graduation to work.
All in all, this was a great book to be read any time during the whole law school experience. I like the perspective too, coming from a law professor--you never can tell what those people are thinking! I highly recommend this book!
