Description

The skills lawyers wield in courtrooms across the country are the result of years of study. As much as we'd like to cultivate these same skills, the truth is that you cannot know how a lawyer thinks and works without studying the law itself.

Now there's an easier way to get the same foundational knowledge as lawyers - without the enormous time and financial commitment. Over the span of 48 lectures, four experienced lawyers and teachers recreate key parts of the first-year law student experience, introducing you to main areas of law most every beginning student studies.

You'll start with 12 lectures on litigation and legal practice that offer eye-opening answers to many questions about the art and craft of legislation. In the second 12 lectures, you'll learn how criminal law and procedure - an area of law dramatized by countless TV shows - really works. Additional lectures investigate the civic procedures courts follow to resolve disputes about substantive rights and examine broader questions any system of litigation must address. And 12 lectures are devoted entirely to the stranger-than-fiction topic of tort law.

Enriched with famous cases from the annals of American law and powerful arguments by some of history's most successful lawyers, these lectures offer access to an often intimidating, surprisingly accessible, and civically important field.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Procedural Peanuts

The course is really good. It’s decided into 4 parts. General judicial stuff. How the court is structured, and the really big cases. I leaned a lot of that same stuff in Gov 201. Then it goes on to criminal law which was fascination and terrifying in equal part. I especially liked the episode on self defense law. After that the was legislative procedure. That part nearly killed me with boredom. It’s stuff like, if one person sues another and they are from different states, which court will it end up in. Then the history of how it ended there. All good knowledge, but so very obtusely complicated. (I think that’s the courts problem and not this course’s problem) but still it was mind numbing. Finally, the last quarter covered tort law. While it was still lawsuits, it was far more interesting so long as you don’t think too highly of humanity. Can someone really sue you and win, because they slipped in front of your house? Yup. It’s very informative and fun. So overall this is so, so worth it but not as amazing as some of the other great courses because of how un-engaging the procedural bit was. I’m not sure if you can actually make legislative procedure in lawsuits interesting. That might be like making tax law minutia interesting; But in any case it’s not. At least, not for me. Maybe you are more scholarly. The course also taught/narrated by three different professors but they are all amazing so it is just a nice change of pace now and then.

Eye opener

Informative, educational, and interesting. The legal system is no longer intimidating to me. Before listening to this, I had zero knowledge of the subject, now I have a new respect and fascination with it. Thank you

What Law School Should have been like!

Would you listen to Law School for Everyone again? Why?

I plan on definitely listening to it again just to review the trail tactics!

Who was your favorite character and why?

I enjoyed hearing actors relive various famous trials!

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This was the first time I heard these professors.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The way law should be taught in law school!

Any additional comments?

As a lawyer I often thought about how law schools should teach the law. Instead of the Socratic method it should be the way "Law School for Everyone" teaches. What I especially liked about the course is how they used real life trials to illustrate legal concepts and trail tactics. The O.J. Simpson "Trial of the Century" is a perfect example of this. So much could be learned by reviewing this trial and the mistakes and successes of the opposing sides. This course not only discusses this trial and several other famous trials, it even had actors read salient portions of the trial transcripts. Bringing the legal concepts to life!

Very Interesting and Entertaining

This is the first (and only) “multi-professor” course I’ve had wherein all four professors were articulate, engaging, well-prepared and just plain entertaining. The legal subjects covered are wide-ranging and the professors include both historic and current reasoning and examples. The “reasoning” is especially interesting because they don’t just describe the current environment but also provide background on what it was like in the past and why it changed. This in one of my favorite courses and I highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in the law and/or our legal system.

Fantastic series!

This is an excellent and interesting lecture series by 4 eloquent professors. It’s packed with information, so be ready for dense lectures. The Audible app on my phone didn’t show that I had access to the booklet PDF. I discovered that only when I signed in online. I would have preferred to know this sooner. The PDF doesn’t include all the important info that the professors discuss, so I took additional notes.
Professor Molly Bishop Shadel talked too fast, so it was difficult to take notes.
Professor Peter Smith could have described a clearer outline of jurisdiction. I found the rules and limits hard to follow.
It would’ve been useful to have a 15-second rewind option in addition to the 30-second option.

excellent overview + very contemporary

1. unlike some other great courses books, this book covered cases from as recent 2017.
2. Almost each lecture explained the larger-picture trade offs behind specific cases that a good judge must recognize.
3. the book made me want to read actual legal cases referenced (and I am not a lawyer).

Excellent Law School Prep

I listened to this series as preparation for going to actual law school. The concepts explored here have mapped very well onto the first few weeks, giving me a great leg up on understanding the concepts and generally "thinking like a lawyer." I highly recommend it to any prospective or future law student.

I'm not completely ignorant anymore :-)

If you are starting from scratch as I was, it will require time, discipline and concentration to go through this course. The reward compensates by far on the effort, since this course will help you understand the very basics of common laws legal system and prepare you to dig in deeper in other topics if you wish. 100% recommended.
