This fully-online course introduces students to the kinds of doctrinal concepts and legal skills that students will encounter at law school.
It is proven to work. Unlike any other law school prep course, peer-reviewed research has repeatedly shown that students participating in JD-Next get a 0.2 improvement first-semester GPA. The exam at the end of the course has been shown to be a valid and reliable law school admissions tool, which eliminates the large, significant racial disparities that infect other standardized tests.
This program prepared me to read and digest cases. I was able to pull out the relevant information much faster than most of my peers.
The most satisfying part was learning how concepts could be broken down to easily understand them.
It was a good way to start case-reading before law school, and to start working through how to actually read cases, understand them, and then logically order how I think about them through case briefing.
I enjoyed the lectures and was happy to get acquainted with briefing and analyzing cases in a low-risk environment before starting law school.
