For paralegals and legal assistants, education is increasingly important. The reason? More than ever, human resources managers and firm business managers scrutinize candidates' education as much as their experience.
The sad truth is that you don't get all your legal education in a law school. You get a lot. You are superbly equipped in certain ways. You have a high degree of analytical skill. You are well equipped to isolate the legal issues in a complex set of facts. You understand the fundamental legal concepts and you are able to apply them to the issues. But the skill you don't have is a detailed how-to-do-it skill -- Let's see what it is.
[Barron's How to Succeed in Law School provides an in-depth look at legal education from the student's point of view, particularly the critical first year. The premise of the book is that being intelligent is not enough; the successful law student needs to know how to play the game. The portion of the book given below provides an overview of the first year; other chapters deal with classroom preparation, studying, test taking, and a variety of other key elements in law school success. Readers who successfully gain admission to law school should read How to Succeed in Law School as the next step in their preparation for a career in law. Ed]
