Are You Ready For Law School?


 

What do current law students* have to say about Harvard and Hardship?

*Student names have been changed to protect identity; schools, however, are accurate.

"The video about outlines I found super helpful! Having two outlines for the class helped me focus on the most important parts of what I needed to know, and "triage" my reading in a way that made studying more effective."

- Sarah, University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School

"Reading your story, and how there are secrets to law school we don't know; like outlines (which enabled me to answer questions like a genius) allowed me to enter law school with confidence. Now I'm going to my dream firm as a 1L!"

- Matthew, New York University School of Law

"Angel's advice on writing outlines really helped me to study and prepare for my law school exams. She made outlining less intimidating for me."

- Liliana, Columbia Law School

Your Instructor


My name is Angel Everett, and I am a licensed attorney admitted to the Florida Bar.

I had always excelled in my academics, but during my first semester at Harvard Law School, I began to feel like a fish out of water. Once I figured out the law school game, I realized:

This is different, but not impossible. Why didn’t I know this? 

The summer before I started law school (i.e. when I was a Pre-L), people told me to “Just relax before law school. 1L is hard. Have fun before you get there.” However, after fumbling through my first year, I distinctly remember wishing:

I wish I had completed a crash course in law school before starting. It wouldn’t have been so hard.

And that is why I created the Harvard and Hardship Pre-Law Summer School. It is the crash-course on what to expect in law school that I wish I had access to as a Pre-L.

Frequently Asked Questions

1) What are the lessons like?

Pre-Law Summer School consists of 10 modules that each cover a major portion of the law school experience. Each module consists of 3-6 lectures. As Angel explains basic legal jargon, concepts, and how to start off strong in law school, students will take notes in their workbook. (The outline notes are pre-typed in the workbook; Students need only to "fill in the blanks" by copying the text when it is displayed on the webinar screen.)

Also, students will have occasional reading assignments from the Writing Guide (the textbook), as well as from supplemental materials such as case excerpts.

2) How will I receive my course materials?

All materials are included in the cost of course registration.

*The Course Manual is a printable workbook. Each module corresponds to a section of the printable workbook. Pre-Law Summer School students will be able to access the workbook once the course begins. At the conclusion of the summer program participants will have a cohesive, complete Pre-Law Summer School workbook. It is suggested that students purchase a 1" binder to keep the workbook organized throughout the summer.

*The Writing Guide is a physical textbook. It will be shipped to students who enroll in the Pre-Law Summer School. We are not able to ship to destinations outside the continental U.S. Students located outside the continental U.S. will receive the Writing Guide as an ebook. Details on how to access the ebook will be sent after enrollment.

*Supplemental materials (such as excerpts of case opinions) will become available for download once students log in to begin a module.

*Summer 2020 Promo: A free, paperback copy of Harvard and Hardship: A Beginner's Guide to College and Law School will be shipped to students who enroll (while supplies last). Again, we are unable to ship to destinations outside the continental U.S. Students located outside the continental U.S. will receive their their copy of Harvard and Hardship as an ebook. Details on how to access the ebook will be sent after enrollment.

3) When do classes begin? How often do they meet?

Enrolled students will have access to the course starting June 1, 2020. Although the lectures were recorded in a local studio in Tampa, FL, Pre-Law Summer School is a virtual, online program. Starting June 1, 2020, modules will be released every 1-2 weeks throughout the summer. Although there is a suggested schedule to follow, once the modules are released, you are able to complete them on your own time, at your own pace, from the comfort of your own, chosen location.

Additional information regarding access to the exclusive live Q&A sessions will be emailed to enrolled students.

4) For how long do I have access to the course?

Indefinitely. The hard-copy course materials (i.e. the workbook, Writing Guide, and the copy of Harvard & Hardship: A Beginner's Guide to College and Law School) are yours to keep. Also, once you enroll in Pre-Law Summer School, you will have access to the webinars indefinitely, thereby allowing you to watch the replays as many times as necessary throughout every phase of your law school experience, from the summer before 1L to the summer before you sit for the bar, and beyond (if your heart so desires).

5) What if Angel doesn’t get to my question during the live Q&A sessions?

Enrolled students will have the opportunity to email questions up to 48 hours before the live begins. Angel will respond to all questions sent via email during the live. The email address will be provided to enrolled students.

6) I won't be starting law school right away. Should I enroll in Pre-Law Summer School now, or wait until the summer before I begin law school?

Although Pre-Law Summer School will open enrollment again in the future, it is highly doubtful that future registration will be offered again at the current rate. (The current rate is a promotional incentive.) However, once you purchase the program, you will have indefinite access to the course content. Meaning, if you purchase it at the Summer 2020 promo rate, if future registration is offered at a higher rate, you will remain "enrolled" in the system and have indefinite access to the modules. Also, you will be shipped the course materials with the current cohort (Summer 2020), thereby allowing you to leave your course materials on the shelf until you are ready to begin the program.

 7) Will my payment information be secure?

Yes; Harvard and Hardship LLC neither handles nor processes your payment information. The platform we use to host the webinar (“Teachable”) uses 128-bit encryption to process your payment.

8) Are refunds available?

*March Madness Promotion: Refunds are not available for those students who enroll as part of the March Madness promotion.

For all other students who did not enroll during March Madness: Refunds are available until April 30, 2020. After 11:59pm EST on 4/30/2020, refunds will not be processed. Course registration is non-transferable to other products or services offered by Harvard and Hardship LLC.

9) Is Angel available for one-on-one coaching?

Angel will begin accepting new clients* again in Fall 2020. If you are interested, please enter your name onto the waiting list at www.HarvardandHardshipLLC.com.

*Students who enroll as part of the March Madness promotion are able to redeem their one-hour consultation anytime between the date of purchase and August 31, 2020.
