Law Start II at Loyola

Law Start II is a two-day program hosted by Loyola Law School to prepare you for success in law school.  The program features simulated law school classes, skills training on note taking, case briefing and case analysis, and practice applying the law to simulated “client” facts patterns like you will do on your law school exams.  A key component of Law Start II is the opportunity to participate in small breakout sessions with faculty members to discuss your work.  The program is designed to help you hit the ground running when you start law school and to provide direction and feedback by faculty to get you ready to succeed.

Law Start II builds on Law Start I, but Law Start I is not a prerequisite for Law Start II.


Law Start II will take place on May 19-20, 2014 at Loyola Law School. The program begins at 9:00 a.m each day and ends at 2:00 p.m.
