Pre-Law: An Introduction to Torts

Are you contemplating the possibility of attending law school, even during this early phase of your education? Do you ever wonder what it would be like to attend a law school class? Is it as demanding as you’ve heard? What makes law school classes different from college and high school classes? Learn the answers to these and other questions by enrolling in this intensive law school class simulation that focuses on torts—which is an actual class for all first-year law students. During the four sessions you attend, you will read relevant cases and acclimate yourself to learning through the Socratic method—what most law professors use to lead classroom discussions. At the conclusion of the course, you will complete a substantive essay-style law exam.
