The Siegel’s Series works through key topics in a Q&A format, providing an additional source for self-quizzing. A proven resource for high performance, each title in this exam-prep series contains multiple-choice questions and answers, as well as essay questions with model answers.
To achieve superior scores on essay exams, a law student must (1) learn and understand “blackletter” principles and rules of law for each subject, (2) analyze how those principles of law arise within a test fact pattern, and (3) clearly and succinctly discuss each principle and how it relates to the facts. One of the most common misconceptions about law school is that you must memorize each word on every page of your casebooks or outlines to do well on exams. The reality is that you can commit an entire casebook to memory and still do poorly on an exam. Our review of hundreds of student answers has shown us that most students know most of the rules. Students who do best on exams are able to analyze how the rules relate to the facts in the questions, and they are able to communicate their analysis to the grader. You also should note that, although some essay questions have discrete “right” and “wrong” answers, law professors often will devise exam questions that simply do not have a definitive answer precisely to see how effectively a student can apply rules to facts that could relate to more than one legal rule or produce more than one possible result. Thus, the ability to correctly state a rule is only the first step to an excellent answer — you must be able to apply the rule persuasively as well. The following pages cover what you need to know to achieve superior scores on your law school essay exams.
Brian N. Siegel is a highly successful author. After graduating from Columbia Law School, where he was designated a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar for academic excellence, he wrote “How to Succeed in Law School.” He then authored a 12-book series of popular exam-taking manuals for law students entitled “Siegel’s Answers to Essay and Multi-Choice Questions.” Over 220,000 copies have been sold.
Brian’s latest work, “The Original Self-Help Book, Life Lessons from Genesis,” is truly unique. Why? The advice offered is of Divine origin! Yes, you heard right! Only a small amount of G-d’s dictation to Moses is in the Five Books of Moses. A portion of this initially unwritten data, known as the Oral Tradition, contains pragmatic “life lessons” which were subtly embedded in Biblical events.
A serious student of Genesis, Brian was deeply impressed by these mindful, self-improvement teachings. He is confident that following these timeless precepts will engender a happier, more elevated and satisfying life. After all, who could possibly be a better “life coach” than the Creator of the human race.
Written in a highly accessible manner and aimed at self-help devotees of all faiths, Mr. Siegel illustrates 13 of these life lessons in his recent 60-page book. It’s been said that the way to begin making a better world starts by improving ourselves. Brian hopes this has occurred in his case and that “The Original Self-Help Book, Life Lessons from Genesis” will inspire others to undertake this effort.
