The Philadelphia Diversity Law Group (PDLG) is pleased to announce that on October 29 we will host a seminar on preparing for and taking law school exams for diverse 1L students at area law schools. The seminar will run from 1 to 4 p.m. and be held in Center City Philadelphia.

The seminar will consist of two panels, one of law school professors and one of law students and recent law school graduates, who will discuss their perspectives on what law students should do to succeed on their exams, right from the first exam they take. Among the things discussed will be outlining, recognizing professorsí points of view and possible exam questions from class discussions, studying alone or with others, meeting with professors, using past exams that are on file at school and attending prep sessions.

Each professor will explain what he or she looks for in an exam and how to maximize the points and credit for all the answers. They will come from different schools and teach different substantive materials so cumulatively should give a well-rounded view of what professors expect.

Each law student or recent law school graduate will explain how they studied during the semester and how they approached exams Ė some panelists had excellent grades from the beginning, some improved greatly by changing study methods or exam strategy. They will talk about what worked and what didnít. Again, this should give a well-rounded view of various things that do and donít work so those attending the seminar can choose what they think will work best for them.
