With the introduction of the Socratic method, rumors of rigorous classes, and anticipated long study hours, starting law school can be intimidating. However, BYU Law’s entering class can step through the doors with confidence after receiving survival tips from recent graduates and current students. BYU Law is hosting a series of Law School Survival Skills luncheons over the summer to prepare newly admitted students for the upcoming school year. Students have the opportunity to get to know their classmates, ask questions, and get sound advice.
The first survival skills luncheon was held on Tuesday, May 26, 2015. Recent graduate, Sam Noel, and third-year law student, Victoria Chen, shared tips on how to have a successful law school experience.
“I was very fortunate to hear tips from law students and practitioners before starting law school,” Noel said. “It helped me keep a better perspective throughout law school.”
Chen hopes her tips helped students gain confidence as they get ready for law school. “I want the incoming students to understand that their unique backgrounds and experiences will help them succeed as well as contribute to the law school community,” she said.
