Real Lawyer Reacts to Better Call Saul (Episode 1)
 
14:26
Why do bad things happen to good lawyers? Before he was Saul Goodman he was Jimmy McGill -- but he was always a great lawyer. Today we’re going to review Better Call Saul. Stay until the end for my Legal Realism Grade! I loved Breaking Bad. And Saul Goodman was one of my favorite characters. Despite being down on his luck and faking his own name, he somehow always managed to give good legal advice to certain meth dealers in Albuquerque. Not surprisingly I REALLY enjoyed this show. Are there other episodes that are particularly good? Would you like me to react to another one? Let me know in the comments! ★ GET TIED! If you’re looking for skinny ties, pocket squares, or tie bars (like the ones I wear) check out Ties.com. Huge selection and great prices: https://go.magik.ly/ml/ftki/ ★ SUIT UP! Even if you're not a lawyer, you can still DRESS LIKE A LAWYER. All of my suits are from BlackLapel (I've used them exclusively for over five years). Their custom suits are amazing, yet still ridiculously affordable. HIGHLY recommended: https://go.magik.ly/ml/f78n/ I get asked a lot about whether being a practicing attorney is like being a lawyer on TV. I love watching legal movies and courtroom dramas. It's one of the reasons I decided to become a lawyer. But sometimes they make me want to pull my hair out because they are ridiculous. Today I'm taking a break from teaching law students how to kick ass in law school to take on lawyers in the movies and on TV. While all legal movies and shows take dramatic license to make things more interesting (nobody wants to see hundreds of hours of brief writing), many of them have a grain of truth. This is part of a continuing series of "Lawyer Reaction" videos. Got a legal movie or TV show you'd like me to critique? Let me know in the comments! Props to Dr. Mike's Real Doctor Reacts (https://goo.gl/qF6Hza) and Wired's Technique Critique (https://goo.gl/C8dz2U) for the inspiration. All clips used for fair use commentary, criticism, and educational purposes. See Hosseinzadeh v. Klein, 276 F.Supp.3d 34 (SDNY 2017) Equals Three, LLC v. Jukin Media, Inc., 139 F. Supp. 3d 1094 (C.D.

Real Lawyer Reacts to Liar Liar (Part 2)(The Divorce Trial)
 
25:50
IF THE PRENUP IS VOID, ISN’T THE WHOLE MARRIAGE VOID? This is part 2 of my reaction to Liar Liar. Here, I cover the entire second half of the film including the entire divorce trial. Jim Carrey (as attorney Fletcher Reede) is struck by a magic spell and can’t lie. But is he a good lawyer? Today we’re going to review one of the funniest legal movies of all time: Liar Liar. Stay until the end for my Legal Realism Grade! ★ SUIT UP! Even if you're not a lawyer, you can still DRESS LIKE A LAWYER.

Check out what on my list (as well as the best books for Law School and all of my favorite camera gear): https://www.amazon.com/shop/legaleagle The last time I watched Liar Liar, I wasn’t yet an attorney myself. I remember watching Liar Liar years and thinking how cool it would be to become a lawyer myself. That was obviously a long time ago. It was great to be able to watch the movie with fresh eyes and know which parts were realistic and which were not. I practiced in Los Angeles for a long time, so I recognized a lot of my old haunts including the office parks and courthouses.

11:59
Stephanie Clifford aka Stormy Daniels sued President Trump for defamation. So why does SHE have to pay for his attorneys’ fees? We’ll find out why today!

Real Law School Horror Stories
 
09:21
Law school can be a scary place. These are a couple of the craziest things that happened to me in law school. Buzzfeed did a video on what they claimed were “law school horror stories” (https://youtu.be/BN9iFX9BLSA) But the things that they claimed were “horror stories” weren’t that scary. Getting cold called by the professor isn’t a big deal if you have the right tools and read your cases the right way (say for example if you used our Flipped Case Method, https://youtu.be/PxGGbymWYA0). Frankly, I wouldn't call their stories horror stories. Unlike the folks at Buzzfeed, I experienced some really scary stuff. Imagine a judge threatening someone with a gun. It happened. Imagine taking the bar exam during an earthquake. It happened. Imagine having your computer fail right before finals. It happened. Man, I’ve seen some stuff. Scary. So gather ‘round the campfire as I tell you some true stories of law school! ======================================================== Get our Ultimate Pre-Law Checklist (FREE) here ➜ https://www.legaleagleprep.com/prelaw Learn learn how to get ready for law school, the 5 things you must do the summer before law school, and more . . . ======================================================== ★ Got law school questions?

Is Law School Worth It?

Get our Ultimate Pre-Law Checklist (FREE) here ➜ https://www.legaleagleprep.com/prelaw Learn learn how to get ready for law school, the 5 things you must do the summer before law school, and more . . . Law school is a big investment. Even if you have a full ride scholarship, you are still investing three full years of your life in the pursuit of becoming a lawyer. And these are not three dreamy years of relaxing on the beach. Oh no, law students routinely talk about law school as the most stressful time of their entire lives. And for most students the financial investment is very large. When law school is $60,000 per year plus living expenses, it’s no surprise that law students often graduate with over $200,000 in law school debt alone. So bottom line, law school costs a lot of money and take a lot of time. But is it worth it? The payoffs can be huge. Some first year associate salaries at big firms are up to $190,000 per year. Being a lawyer can be a great vocation. But it’s not for everyone. In this video we’re going to talk about who will get the most out of law school. We’ll talk about who should not under any circumstances go to law school. We’ll talk about the economics of the huge upfront costs of law school and law school debt. And most importantly we’ll talk about when it’s worth it to make the plunge. ======================================================== If you want to learn to THINK LIKE A LAWYER and ACE YOUR NEXT EXAM, check out our LAW SCHOOL MASTERCLASS at https://www.legaleagleprep.com/masterclass ======================================================== ★ Got law school questions?

Real Lawyer Reacts to How to Get Away With Murder (Episode 1)
 
23:05
Annalise Keating is an unorthodox law professor. Instead of being a “good” law professor or actually “teaching” she makes her students unpaid interns for her criminal defense law firm. Drama! Mystery! Legal technicalities! Today we’re going to review How to Get Away With Murder. Stay until the end for my Legal Realism Grade! This one was a bear. It made me want to pull my hair out. This show is more soap opera than legal procedural. I’m glad I got through it, but I’m not sure I’m the same man as when i started. Does it get better over time? Would you like me to react to another one? Let me know in the comments! New episodes weekly!

Be sure to check out my reactions to Suits, Better Call Saul, A Few Good Men and tons more: https://goo.gl/42fKce I get asked a lot about whether being a practicing attorney is like being a lawyer on TV. I love watching legal movies and courtroom dramas. It's one of the reasons I decided to become a lawyer. But sometimes they make me want to pull my hair out because they are ridiculous. Today I'm taking a break from teaching law students how to kick ass in law school to take on lawyers in the movies and on TV. While all legal movies and shows take dramatic license to make things more interesting (nobody wants to see hundreds of hours of brief writing), many of them have a grain of truth.

The 3 Things I Wish I Had In Law School (and Still Use As A Practicing Attorney)

Download the Ultimate Pre-Law Checklist at: ➜ https://www.legaleagleprep.com/prelaw A special heads up to every incoming 1L - the three things I wish I had in law school. ★ 1. I HATE casebooks. They're big, they're heavy, they're expensive, and in practice, authors simply include the cases verbatim, which means you're paying hundreds of dollars for cases that are in the public domain- that you can access for free. Which is why the first thing that I wish I had in law school is a beautiful shiny tablet. It makes life so much easier. For example: https://amzn.to/2GW9ny9 ★ 2. The second thing that I wish I had when I started law school: a nice laptop with a solid state hard drive a long battery life and cloud storage. For example: https://amzn.to/2H0xY58 ★ 3. The third thing that I wish I had in law school and that is: a fast cheap laser printer because you're going to print a ton.

How I Learned to Succeed at a Top Law School
 
11:43
Getting into law school is only half the battle. This is my story of how I learned to succeed in law school in the face of stiff competition, crazy professors, and endless work. Law school is incredibly intimidating. When you arrive you are surrounded by the highest concentration of the smartest people you’ll ever meet. It’s very different from college where many people are just skating by. In law school, everyone is giving 100% and going 100 miles per hour. Law school is graded on a curve. Which means that professors can only give out a few A’s per class, no matter how well everyone does on the exams. Generally only the top 5% get A’s and another 5-10% get A minuses. You’re not competing against the professor’s exam, you are competing against your fellow classmates. I realized pretty quickly that I couldn’t out work my classmates. I also couldn’t “out think” them in the sense of just being smarter. I was going to have to find an edge. So I started to study law school itself. I learned all the tricks. I learned to focus on what matters and remove all the extraneous stuff. So much of law school is wasted on focusing on crap that doesn’t matter. I learned to work smarter rather than harder. In the end, my strategic thinking paid off. Watch the video until the end to find out how. If you’re interested in learning the system that I created (one that is guaranteed to get you better grades in law school) you can check out the link below. In my spare time, I teach current law students how to kick ass in law school. I’m not special. I just systematized a better way. And you can get that system.

The 2 Keys to Acing Law School
 
05:46
Download the Ultimate Guide to Crushing Law School Finals ➜ https://www.legaleagleprep.com/finals ★ 2 Keys for acing law school: master the law and master the test (aka master law essays). If you're a law student, you might think you're in law school, but actually you're in essay school. That's because almost all of your final grades will be based on issue-spotting-exam essays. So what are the things that you need to do in order to ace your issue-spotting-essay exams? Well I think there are two things that you should do. The first and most obvious thing that you can do in law school is master the law. The second thing that you have to do in order to ace you law school exam is the thing that so few people do. And that's that this: you have to master the test. You'll get better the more you do it and there are strategies that will allow you to learn how to do it faster. The worst thing that you can possibly do in law school is to never take a practice test until the day of your first final exam. Just like the LSAT you can learn the strategies and get better over time. But only if you practice. For a lot of people, perfect is the enemy of good and they keep trying to get perfect at knowing the substantive law without even trying to learn the basics of writing issue-spotting exams. As a result they never learn how to spot the issues and they never learn how to write those good essays, the ones that will get A's on the exam.

The Single Greatest Law School Time Management Tip: Outline From Day One
 
06:50
Your outline is going to be your primary studying device. It's how you distill all of your notes, your cases and your commercial outlines into a usable format, specifically tailored just for you. What most students don't understand about their outline is that more is not better. There's an old phrase that, "If I had more time, "I would have written a shorter letter." The same is true for outlines.

How I Got Into A Top Law School
 
13:28
There are many ways to get into law school. But I thought I’d share my journey from undergrad to UCLA Law; everything from getting good grades in college, to taking the LSAT, to playing the waitlist game over the summer. I call my story "Legally Brunette." I knew from a young age that I wanted to be an attorney. Seeing the dramatizations of trial lawyers on TV made me want to get into a courtroom myself. So I did my best to get good grades throughout high school and college. I studied hard and participated in mock trial. When the time came, I studied the LSAT for months. I studied the crap out of the strategies and tactics in order to get a good score on the LSAT. A good LSAT score is the single most important thing you can do to get into law school. Eventually, I applied to the top 20 law schools in the country. I was accepted into some, rejected by others, and waitlisted at a few. But I got into the school of my choice (UCLA) and did pretty well (mostly A’s). I got the job of my dreams and am a practicing attorney to this day. In my spare time, I teach current law students how to kick ass in law school.

The One Thing You Need to Know When Starting Law School
 
05:38
There is one thing about law school that I hate. One thing that is a total bait and switch. For an institution that is famous for rigorous academic debate, extreme amounts of homework, and unending studying, very few of those things matter. Your grade in law school is generally based on one thing, and one thing alone: your final exam. That wouldn't be so bad, I suppose, except that your final exam looks nothing like the rest of your entire school year. Your final is usually based on an issue spotting hypothetical that prizes application of the law about mere knowledge. I actually think the "issue spotting" exam is great. It is a reasonably good test of lawyer-like analysis. The problem is that no one teaches you how to do it. And professors don't tell students that class participation won't help on the exam. Students don't find out until it's too late. Well, I'm here to tell you that you need to start preparing for this idiosyncratic test now. You CAN learn how to do issue spotting exams. You CAN get better. Good grades are possible if you know what to look for. If you’re interested in learning the system that I created (one that is guaranteed to get you better grades in law school) you can check out the link below. In my spare time, I teach current law students how to kick ass in law school. I’m not special. I just systematized a better way. And you can get that system.

Just take a step back and realize that it's all going to be okay. Everyone feels overwhelmed. You're thrown into a situation that you've never been in before. You're learning about subjects that you didn't know existed. It's probably going over your head. You probably feel stressed out, you might be a little freaked out, that's okay, everyone feels that way. But let's talk about all the dos and don'ts of your first week of law school. Everything you can do to maximize your chances of success later on and everything you can do to minimize your stress in the present. ★ You should understand that the way that law school is taught is completely backwards. You learn the most antiquated arcane cases early on in the semester and there is very little chance that any of those cases will be used on the final exam. ★ The second thing to realize is that a lot of the information that your school is going to give you is bad. ★ Don’t try to do everything. ★ Start outlining. ★ Learn to write an issue spotting exam and spot all the issues.

Can You Hold a Job and Work in Law School?
 
06:55
It seems like I've been talking a lot about how expensive law school is. So it's natural for students to want to reduce those costs. One way is to get scholarships aka free money. Free money is great. In fact, free money is my favorite kind of money. But that's not an option for some law students. So one option that students often ask me about is working during law school. The allure is obvious: make a little money to defray the cost of school (or to make a little spending money). Getting a job doesn't require financial need. Nor does it require special academic performance. So a job could open up some opportunities that might not be available in the context of scholarships. More money is always good, so what could go wrong? A lot can go wrong. I recorded a video that talks about how much can go wrong if you prioritize the wrong things in law school, second job included. Getting a job while being a full time law student is being penny-wise and pound-foolish. ======================================================== Get our Ultimate Pre-Law Checklist (FREE) here ➜ https://www.legaleagleprep.com/prelaw Learn learn how to get ready for law school, the 5 things you must do the summer before law school, and more . . . ======================================================== ★ Got law school questions?

Taking these factors into consideration will help make sure you pick the law school that is right for you. Even if you've already chosen your law school, you'll find this video invaluable. You can confirm you made the right choice. And if you didn't you might consider transferring to the law school you should have chosen (transferring is an option if you have the grades!).

Keep Up With Your Case Reading and Prepare for Cold Calls in Law School (Flipped Case Method)
 
05:55
Get our Ultimate Guide to Cases & Briefs (FREE) here: https://legaleagleprepcourse.com/cases You’ll learn how to read cases in five minutes and summarize them in 3 lines. It will change the way you read your casebook. If there is one law school complaint I hear more than any other is that it is impossible to do all the reading. When one professor assigns 30 pages of reading a night, it doesn't sound like much. But you have to realize that EVERY professor is assigning the same amount. If three professors assign 30 pages each, those 90 pages start to add up. Here is the worst part: the average reading speed for cases is 10 pages per hour. Using the standard method of reading cases (diving head first into the case, reading the case three times, picking out the most important facts of the case, writing a case brief that is almost as long as the case itself, and then blindly heading to class), could take an entire day. That’s time you don’t have in law school. So we came up with a better way. I got tired of trying to "stir cement with my eyelashes." I realized that the way I was reading my cases was backwards. I also realized that the single worst way to read a case was to dive head first into the opinion with no context. The trick is to read the supplements and commercial outlines first. Read several of them. Then, once you have an idea of what is important about the case, and only then, read the text of the case itself. This “Flipped Case Method” will save you hours of time and make you far more prepared for class discussion. Boom.

What You NEED To Know About Law School Exams

Download the Ultimate Guide to Crushing Finals at: ➜ https://www.legaleagleprep.com/finals ★ Almost all law school exams consist of issue spotting essays- sometimes called hypotheticals or hypos for short. An issue spotter is not about regurgitating the law or just regurgitating the facts. Generally, you're analyzing the facts as a litigator would and it's all about application. You're looking for claims and counter claims and defenses and counter defenses that one party can bring against the other or that they can use to protect against the claims of another party.

Download the Ultimate Pre-Law Checklist at: ➜ https://www.legaleagleprep.com/prelaw ★ Today let's talk about some about starting law school and why they're wrong. The first myth is, "Everybody knows what they want to do "when they graduate." In reality, very few people go to law school knowing exactly what they want to do when they graduate from law school. Myth number two: "Everyone is super competitive." Some are some are not. Don't count on everyone being cut-throat. You'll definitely meet a lot of quality people. Myth number three: "Everyone has legal experience "before they go to law school." Or in other words, "Everybody knows this stuff but me." Nope.

Should You Case Brief in Law School? (Study Advice)

Download the Free Guide to Law School Cases at: ➜ https://www.legaleagleprep.com/caseguide Learn how to beat every law school exam and write A+ essays: https://www.legaleagleprep.com/masterclass ★★★ Should you case brief in law school? No! ★★★ What you will use on a final exam are one of two things: one, either the bare recitation of the facts; or a bright line legal rule. This process takes hours, and unfortunately, this kind of briefing is a huge waste of time. It’s just pure busy work. Why? Because you can't use the information that's found in those cases, on the final. It's almost all irrelevant. This is shocking to most people, but think about how you're going to use cases on a final exam, in law school. We have a whole video on what you should know about law school exams, and we'll put a link down below. A law school exam is a test of applying the law, just like a real lawyer would, in the real world. You pretend to be a lawyer for one side, and then mentally flip to being a lawyer for the other side. You're constantly arguing for claims and counterclaims, and defenses. In those circumstances, there is no room at all for most of the information that you put in a case brief.

Law School Extracurriculars and Resume Boosters
 
12:34
Get our Ultimate Pre-Law Checklist (FREE) here ➜ https://www.legaleagleprep.com/prelaw Learn learn how to get ready for law school, the 5 things you must do the summer before law school and more . . . Let’s discuss your options for extracurriculars in law school. And almost as important, which ones will help your resume when it comes time to apply for 1L jobs? Law Review: Law reviews publish lengthy, comprehensive treatments of subjects ("articles"), generally written by law professors, judges, or legal practitioners, as well as shorter pieces, commonly called "notes" and "comments," written by law student "members" of the law review. Law review articles often express the thinking of specialists or experts with regard to problems with current law and potential solutions to those problems. In the United States, law reviews are typically edited by a certain percentage of the top students in the class or students who are selected to join after successfully completing a “write on competition” at the end of their first year of law school. Moot Court: Moot court involves a simulated appellate court (appellate advocacy). Moot court does not involve actual testimony by witnesses, cross-examination, or the presentation of evidence, but is focused solely on the application of the law to a common set of evidentiary assumptions, facts, and clarifications/corrections to which the competitors are introduced. Participants usually draft memoranda and conduct oral argument. Mock Trial: Mock trial is usually a student run competition in law school. It is similar to a moot court, but mock trials simulate lower-court trials, while moot court simulates appellate court hearings. Students participate in rehearsed trials to learn about the legal system in a competitive manner. Students portray the attorneys and usually the witnesses as well. Mock trial is often taught in conjunction with a course in Trial Advocacy. Drinking: There is a lot of drinking in law school.... Just be warned that when someone talks about going to “bar review” on Thursday night at 9pm, they aren’t preparing for the state bar. They are prepare for a different bar... Student Groups: There are lots of student groups in law school. Odds are, if you are passionate about a cause there is a student group in law school that wants the same thing. Social Committees: Social committees try to bring some life into law school. They help organize the law prom, musical, and other get-togethers. It’s good for your soul! ======================================================== If you want to learn to THINK LIKE A LAWYER and ACE YOUR NEXT EXAM, check out our LAW SCHOOL MASTERCLASS at https://www.legaleagleprep.com/masterclass ======================================================== ★ Got law school questions?

Should you Use Commercial Supplements and Outlines in Law School

It will change the way you read your casebook. Glannon, Emanuel, Chemerinsky, Examples & Explanations, Nutshells, Hornbooks. These are only a few of the commercial supplements and outlines that are out there. The question is should you use them? Publishers know that law school is tough. So they try to make it as easy as possible by publishing summaries of your classes. While your professor may try to hide the ball, commercial supplements try to make it as easy as possible. They have a vested interest in making sure that you understand the law. So find the commercial supplements that work for you and use them with confidence, they might make all the difference. Also, be sure to use our Flipped Case Method. The trick is to read the supplements and commercial outlines first. Read several of them. Then, once you have an idea of what is important about the case, and only then, read the text of the case itself.

Choose the Perfect Backpack & Bag for Law School (to Carry Casebooks and Laptops)
 
11:51
Get our Ultimate Pre-Law Checklist (FREE) here ➜ https://www.legaleagleprep.com/prelaw Learn learn how to get ready for law school, the 5 things you must do the summer before law school and more . . . No way around it. You need a backpack in law school. But there are lots of options out there. And law school has some really particular requirements for what makes a good backpack or bag. Today we’re going to discuss what I think are the best options. Here are my favorites: REGULAR BACKPACKS: SwissGear: https://amzn.to/2GZfPRN Ogio: https://amzn.to/2HpZKrS Hershel: https://amzn.to/2H4emcW NorthFace: https://amzn.to/2kjhnwb Burton: https://amzn.to/2IFGNPo MESSENGER BAGS: Timbuk2: https://amzn.to/2qzC0YR ROLLING BAGS: What lawyers use: Alpine Document Bag: https://amzn.to/2HBbOEr Hybrid Backpack w/ wheels: High Sierra: https://amzn.to/2qBdo0X Jansport: https://amzn.to/2LneyH5 Law school is probably the last time in your life that a backpack is a mandatory requirement. It’s also probably the last time that wearing a backpack all the time is socially acceptable. Here’s why you need a good sturdy backpack or bag in law school: 1. You are most likely going to be carrying your casebooks to and from class. Even if you don’t use them in class (which most people don’t) you might want to read them in the library before or after class. (Here’s a case book; they are heavy and bulky). So you need a heavy duty backpack that is capable of carrying multiple case books without crushing your back. 2. You are going to take your laptop with you 24/7. Laptops are law students what water is to a fish; you will die without it. You’ll use it to take notes in class, write your outline, and most importantly, go on social media when you need a break. You won’t go anywhere without your laptop, so your backpack needs to have a dedicated space to hold and protect your laptop. 3. You are probably going to have all manner of electronic doodads like chargers, mice, cords, etc and writing implements like pens, pencils, and highlighters. Additionally, you’ll probably have a few snacks and caffeinated liquids. So you need a way to organize all of that stuff. So, here are my requirements for any law school backpack or bag: 1. It must be big. Big enough to carry at least two case books. 2. It must carry your laptop. 3. It must be durable. But any of the options above would be great choices.

If you’d like to see me critique your favorite legal TV show or movie like Suits or Better Call Saul, check out my Real Layer Reacts series, https://goo.gl/42fKce ★ SUIT UP! Even if you're not a lawyer, you can still DRESS LIKE A LAWYER. All of my suits are from BlackLapel (I've used them exclusively for over five years). Their custom suits are amazing, yet still ridiculously affordable. HIGHLY recommended: https://go.magik.ly/ml/f78n/ ★ GET TIED! If you’re looking for skinny ties, pocket squares, or tie bars (like the ones I wear) check out Ties.com. Huge selection and great prices: https://go.magik.ly/ml/ftki/ There are four questions that I cover today: 1. Did Judge Kavanaugh commit perjury? 2. Did he display judge-like temperament? 3. Would Judge Kavanaugh prevent investigations into President Trump or the WH? 4. Would the current allegations of sexual assault hold up in court? 5. Should judge Kavanaugh have requested an investigation? BTW, I refer to “Judge Kavanaugh” and “Dr. Ford” because regardless of current allegations, both individuals have earned the right to be called “Judge” and “Doctor.” On a personal note, this is not meant to be a partisan analysis. I am not going to give my opinion on whether I think Judge Kavanaugh should be elevated to the supreme court based on his judicial philosophy or his political views. I’m a lawyer first, and that’s the perspective I try to give you. All clips used for fair use commentary, criticism, and educational purposes. See Hosseinzadeh v. Klein, 276 F.Supp.3d 34 (S.D.N.Y. 2017); Equals Three, LLC v. Jukin Media, Inc., 139 F. Supp. 3d 1094 (C.D. Cal. 2015). Typical legal disclaimer from a lawyer (occupational hazard): This is not legal advice, nor can I give you legal advice. Sorry!

You should contact your attorney to obtain advice with respect to any particular issue or problem. Nothing here should be construed to form an attorney client relationship.
