Hey, I came across your channel and I must say it’s very insightful. However I’m still in Uni, second year first semester. I was hoping you could recommend books on Tort Law and Public International Law. Thanks ☺️☺️

Please review the good wife/ the good fight. Pleeeease. I like it for the lawyering. I consider it the new law and order (to an extent) Have you seen it yet?

But don't you think that actually reading the cases increases your comprehension and ability to decipher cases more time efficiently?
LegalEagle (5 months ago)
You should read the cases, but you should do so efficiently. Check out what I mean in the video I did on the "Flipped Case" Method.

Well this would of been to watch before I went to law school. As a law school and bar exam survivor I gotta say these tips are spot on.
LegalEagle (6 months ago)
Well, better late than never.

Looks like someone skipped metaphysics in undergrad haha. Great video though man, thanks a ton!
ricky shabongo (6 months ago)
Then you've gotta point me to the metaphysics course that gave you concrete answers about anything!
LegalEagle (6 months ago)

Just about to start my first semester, Im from a common law country and thank god your tips are applicable here and thank you for making these videos! I managed my first semester well, my professors don't know me from class but i bet they now do because i crushed my finals! And you are spot about students trying to impress, i found out that they annoy the professors most of the time. Thanks again by the way!
LegalEagle (10 months ago)
Nice! Well done!
Ahmad Al-Juffri (10 months ago)
Im just about to start my 2nd* semester

Aside from briefing, I agree. Briefing allows me to extract rules and reasoning better. I have found a way to write them more efficiently and effectively. However, I am down to briefing for only two classes and notating for the other three.
LegalEagle (10 months ago)
Would be interested to hear what you're doing for "efficient briefs" and "notating" other cases.

The good news is that getting into law school is mostly about your LSAT score.
