What law school doesn't teach you (so we do)

How amazing would it be if law school helped you to  

* write a great law essay or exam answer (and get a DN every time)

* prepare a top CV and cover letter (that's unique to you and gets you the job you want),

* find a law related job that's right for you, and

* explore what you are passionate about and how to make a difference in the world?

We believe that every law student deserves knowledge and support on these topics -

so we fill the gaps by running courses, events, mentoring and posts on these issues and more. 

If you feel you don't fit into the world you inherited, it's because you were born to create a new one. Ross Caligiuri, Dreaming in the Shadows

Testimonial - ANU JD student
After receiving a horrendous mark for an exam, I was on the verge of dropping out of law school. Kath's name was mentioned to me by a friend and after my first chat with her, I knew that she'd be pivotal in turning my marks around and learning the techniques to succeed in law school. She assured me that I wasn't too stupid for law school, as I had been telling myself, but that I just needed to learn the techniques and strategies to succeed. She was right. She helped me review an upcoming essay that would have received a Pass mark and helped me turn it into a Distinction! It was the first time that I felt I could actually do this law school thing! I would highly recommend Kath to anyone who's looking to increase their grades and get the most out of law school. The tutoring she offers isn't just a service, it's an investment in your success.

What students are saying


2nd year law student

Dr Kath Hall addressed what law school doesn't teach you that you should know and master as a law student. For writing great essays, she outlined what markers are looking for, the factors that academics take into account when designing exams and importantly, the technique for giving your markers precisely what they seek. Structure, format, and argument are the three components of the technique. I liked what Kath mentioned about how you won't have to work as hard in law school once you've mastered the technique. I can't recommend her session highly enough.
