In Juris Prudent: Surviving and Thriving in Law School, RV Seep bares his soul about his law school experience and about what he wishes he had known prior to it. This book is an excellent first step in preparing for the intellectual rigors of legal study and for the emotional and spiritual demands placed on students. Learn of the day-to-day routine, the subjects you will study, the competition among students, and the quirks of the law school environment. Consider seasoned advice on briefing cases, taking notes, negotiating the Socratic classroom, making outlines, assessing and using study aids, writing memoranda and briefs, and preparing for and taking exams. Get counsel on how to take all these things in stride in a pressure cooker environment. Steal a peek at some of the cultural and spiritual issues coming your way. Ponder the author's "Spirit and Mud" tutorials gleaned from his law school years. This book is written as a father's gift to his son, but is profitably read by anyone considering law school, about to enter the profession, or generally interested in the law and legal education.
