For Law Students

On this page, I plan to add video content that is designed to help students with some aspects of the law school experience. In contrast to my video capsules, which are subject specific, these videos are designed to help  you succeed in law school, whether it’s by writing a good paper, doing better on exams, or getting some other part of law school right.

As always, I’d love to hear feedback or suggestions on new things to produce.

Tips From Others?

From time to time, I’d like to reference videos by other professors and students that I think can really make a difference to the student experience.

  1. Reading Case Decisions: Just starting out in law school?  This five minute video on “How to Read a Case” from Temple University in the United States is one I share with my students.
  2. Overcommitting in 1L: Not a video – but a wonderful back and forth written exchange I had with a student on the U of A Law Blog in 2014. It discusses what it’s like for 1Ls when they come to law school and get bombarded with advice.
  3. Going to See Your Profs: Again, not a video – but another wonderful back and forth written exchange I had with a student on the U of A Law Blog in 2014. It discusses the importance of going to see your Profs for help at an early stage.
