1000 Days to the Bar

2010, Legal Education, Legal Profession editor

But the Practice of Law Begins Now, Second Edition
By: Dennis Tonsing
The first edition of the essential work, published on 2003, provided first year law students with a fresh and novel approach to the study of law. Students discovered how to:
  • Lay a solid foundation for the professional practice of law
  • Achieve fluency in the “language of the law”
  • Earn grades that reflect their best efforts
  • Pass the bar exam the first time around
With this new edition, Dennis Tonsing maintains the central theme of the first by identifying the core aspects of a law student’s responsibilities. With refreshing clarity, he explains the link between the immediate – the law school experience – and the permanent – the professional practice of law. Tonsing sets forth detailed “nuts and bolts” methods for every law school skill from reading and briefing to writing essay exam answers, while emphasizing that every day in law school is a small but vital step toward becoming a skilled legal practitioner. Students who employ Tonsing’s methods only improve their law school performances; they come to understand the practical implications of their hard work for their transition into the world of practice.
