Bridging the Gap Between College and Law School will help students make the transition from their undergraduate experience to law school learning. Unlike other “introduction to law school” texts, Bridging the Gap offers a different approach. The text explains the “why” of law, providing students with the context necessary to have in mind why law school is taught in a certain manner. It also explains the “how” of the law, setting out a step by step process so as to help students adapt to the law school setting. In any case, this text explains the “what” of the law, giving students the opportunity to practice the problem-solving process by providing a large number of exercises in quite a few subject matter areas.
Most other “introduction to law school” books only provide general advice. Then again, subject-specific aids offer only black letter law and some practice problems, but fail to provide an explanation for the overall context or provide a problem-solving process. Bridging the Gap does all three – it provides the context, the process, and the problems. Written by two law school professors who use these techniques in the classroom on a daily basis, Bridging the Gap is a guide to what actually works in law school.
