UofSCLaw Academic Success director publishes new book, “A Weekly Guide to Being a Model Law Student”

51VqA-ejFBL._SX373_BO1,204,203,200_Alex Ruskell, the director of the academic success program, has written “A Weekly Guide to Being a Model Law Student,” a new book published in July 2015 by West Academic Publishing. 

The book gives law students weekly checklists explaining the skills necessary to successfully navigate their first year of law school. Each chapter provides a checklist of things to do that week, such as briefing cases, going over notes, outlining classes, or doing practice questions. When a new concept is introduced, this book clearly explains the concept and its purpose and provides examples. Instead of merely providing advice, this book lays out a detailed plan for students to follow. It also includes a bank of over 100 short, medium, and long practice questions in six first year subjects. Purchase a copy of the book.
