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 understand why law school is taught in a certain manner. It also explains the "how" of the law, setting out a step-by-step process that will help students adapt to the law school setting. Finally, this text explains the "what" of the law, giving students the opportunity to practice the problem-solving process by providing numerous exercises in a variety of subject matter areas.
Most other "introduction to law school" books only provide general advice. On the other hand, subject-specific aids offer only black letter law and some practice problems, but fail to explain 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 every day, Bridging the Gap is a guide to what really works in law school.
