Fleming’s Fundamentals of Law was the first legal seminar
course to offer seminars to law students in their first through fourth years of law school.
Law school examinations can be daunting due to the sheer volume of information you must know. Fleming’s knows how to make complex subjects simple and memorable. The Fleming’s Substantive Law Solution lectures and course materials include learning techniques that increase your ability memorize the law, spot important issues, and apply the law in a lawyer-like manner.
Since the ability to analyze and issue spot are the keys to a high grade in any law school course, Fleming’s Substantive Law Solutions provide the tools necessary to accomplish this task.
Fleming’s series of Substantive Law Solutions are designed to assist you to prepare for final examinations. The first step in preparing for final examinations is learning the rules of law. The second step is developing analytical skills in the context of essay and multiple choice examinations. One without the other will not bring success.
Each Substantive Law Solution subject is approximately four to five hours in length and begins with an in-depth lecture on the substantive law tested in the subject area. This lecture is followed by an explanation and demonstration on how to combine the rules of law with proper legal and factual application in the context of an essay or multiple choice examinations. The common theme that crosses over into every Fleming’s course is the application of the substantive law to hypothetical examination facts, an essential technique for success on every law school examination.
Each Substantive Law Solution course gives you the opportunity to implement the techniques presented in the course write by submitting an assigned essay answer for personal evaluation and CD feedback from our attorney readers.
