Legal Studies

Our legal studies tutors are drawn from the law schools at Harvard, Columbia, and NYU. We provide tutoring for undergraduate legal studies (pre-law) classes, preparation for students planning on attending law school, including the LSAT, and tutoring for students enrolled in law school. We offer pre-law workshops on a regular basis to help law-school bound students get a headstart on the 1L year. Many 1L students, who are managing the challenges of a heavy course load, the Socratic method, and difficult exams, find it useful to work with someone who has excelled in the law school environment. 

Popular Subjects: Contracts, Torts, Civil Procedure, Criminal Law, Constitutional Law, Legal Writing, Real Property, Judicial Clerkship application review, Mock Interviews for corporate internships and associate positions
