Skillman offers free intro skills class for law students

All law students are invited to a free presentation, How to Excel in Law School, Professor Nerissa Shklov Skillman, a graduate of Berkeley Law School and the founder of The Skillman Method.

The Zoom presentation on October 2, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., will cover time management, case reading and briefing, note-taking, outlining, and feeling comfortable learning the law.  The presentation is co-sponsored by the Association of Black Women Attorneys.

I have known Professor Skillman for more than 15 years.  She is an expert on access to legal education.  I have seen her methods work wonders for students struggling to adjust to the competitive environment of American law school, in which many essential skills are injudiciously taken for granted in new students.

The presentation is free, but pre-registration at Eventbrite is required.  The Skillman Method is a for-profit enterprise; The Savory Tort and I offer our endorsement for no compensation.
