An Online Law School Preparation Course is an online law school preparation course designed to teach the learning skills necessary to succeed in an American law school by recreating the first semester of law school in a month-long course. Using a discrete topic from a first-year property course (e.g., landlord-tenant law), TryLawSchool.comís instructors teach case briefing, legal analysis, course outlining and writing essay exam answers.  The course was designed by a Harvard Law School alumna and law professor with experience in teaching first-year law students and grading first-year studentsí exams.
