Description: This popular book helps students make the transition from their undergraduate experience to law school learning. Unlike other "introduction to law school" texts, Bridging the Gap offers a different approach because it: * Explains the "why" of law, providing students with the context necessary to understand why law school is taught in a certain manner. * Explains the "how" of the law, setting out a step-by-step process that will help students adapt to the law school setting. * Explains the "what" of the law, giving students the opportunity to practice the problem-solving process by providing numerous exercises in a variety of subject matter areas. Most other "introduction to law school" books only provide general advice. On the other hand, subject-specific aids offer only black letter law and some practice problems, but fail to explain the overall context or provide a problem-solving process. Bridging the Gap does all three -- it provides the context, the process, and the problems. Written by law school professors Ruta Stropus and Charlotte Taylor--who use these techniques in the classroom every day--Bridging the Gap is a guide to what really works in law school.
