Your 1L grades are too important
Law school is quite different from undergrad. A strong GPA and class rank matters to your summer job prospects and future employers. It means a better chance of getting on Law Review. It's even paramount to landing a clerkship position. There’s too much at stake when it comes to your 1L grades. Everything moves pretty fast, and you can quickly grasp the Black Letter Law using BARBRI 1L Mastery.
One of the keys to first-year success is learning the rules of law outside of class so you are prepared to apply what you've learned during class discussions – that moment when the professor calls on you. BARBRI 1L Mastery online study tools and final exam prep resources will help you adjust to a new learning style and establish sound, productive study habits.
Study tools for every first year course
BARBRI 1L Mastery covers all your required 1L courses: Civil Procedure, Constitutional Law, Contracts, Criminal Law, Real Property, and Torts.
BARBRI 1L Mastery is intended to benefit a first year law student currently in law school – whether it’s early in the fall semester or anytime during the academic year.
For those about to enter law school, there’s BARBRI Law Preview. This six-day program provides a head start on what to expect and what to do. Students enrolled in Law Preview will receive BARBRI 1L Mastery free when the fall semester of law school begins.
Superior law school outlines
Learning core legal concepts requires creating your own outlines. You’ve never done this before – it’s not something you’ll be taught in class – and it takes time. BARBRI 1L Mastery law school outlines will help you kickstart the process.
Take our detailed 1L course outlines and use them to springboard your own. It’s a solid approach in making sure you have no substantive gaps – or sudden desperation when professors begin to hint at what is likely to show up on final exams.
Expert lectures, “rock star” professors
Only BARBRI 1L Mastery’ video lectures feature the nation’s top legal scholars. Chemerinsky (Con Law), Freer (Civ Pro), Franzese (Real Property), Calandrillo (Contracts) and more. They’re able to distill down 1L course concepts and explain key principles in captivating, memorable ways.
These on-demand video lectures complement how you study and what you are learning in class. They are broken into sections so you can easily overview entire subjects or just review specific subtopics. You can also watch a lecture at twice the normal speed to review complete subjects in a matter of hours.
Practice questions, model answers
BARBRI 1L Mastery comes with hundreds of online multiple-choice and essay practice questions. To help you reinforce the substantive material, they correspond to specific sections of the video lectures. In addition, you can hone your writing skills by analyzing the model essay answers.
The multiple-choice practice questions are designed to test your understanding and memorization of the black letter law for each 1L subject (except Personal Property, which instead has short answer review questions). In fact, most law school final exams are multiple-choice. Watch a lecture, outline your notes and work practice questions for the most effective learning and retention.
