Lawyer Up is a full-spectrum educational company for law students. Founded by New York City Prosecutors-turned-entrepreneurs, Elura Nanos and Michele Sileo, Lawyer Up is contributing to the legal community of tomorrow by doing things the right way.
I have over 10 years of experience as a practicing lawyer at international law firms. Currently I am a PHD (law) candidate and also doing tutoring for law students. I have received very positive feedbacks from students whom I have been working with. I can provide concise and practical advice on how to understand the legal principles and prepare for exams.
I graduated my 1L ranked in the top 10% of my class and I received the highest grade for Legal Writing and Research. I was on the "Dean's Academic Counsel" for both semesters of my first year for my excellence. I transferred out of New York to pursue my passion to practice International Law in either/or South or Central America. I have been tutoring law students since the beginning of my second semester on outline tips, tips to better writing (CREAC, exams). I simplify doctrines/principles/rules that you need to understand in order to succeed. My approach to law school courses is to first understand the overarching pictures and ideals of what the course is trying to provide for us as future lawyers, from there, it is easy to use memory techniques, association, case examples, and practice to apply rules you have learned and understand why they are important. I love to help people learn, it is one of my passions in life, seeing someone succeed because of the hard effort that both of us put in. I am here for ANY and ALL questions you may have about anything, even life in general. I am friendly, prompt and outgoing so don't feel scared to approach me. :) Good luck on your endeavors!
START OUTLINING EARLY. I cannot stress this enough. Outlining early allows you to be able to figure out any difficulties with the material and solve them, NOT the night before the exam. Once you finish your outlines, access your school's database of past exams from your professors and: CREATE a ATTACK outline. This is an outline in which you would approach the most common questions you find on an exam. Contact me and I will share some with you.
Brainstorm about the "Erie Doctrine" so that you can spot the Erie question on exams. The Erie question will come up only when parties are in Federal court based on diversity jurisdiction (if you're not sure why, take a minute and think about it). Your fact pattern will need to contain some kind of state statute. Often, there will be a federal statute that potentially conflicts with the given state statute but sneaky law professors don't tell you about the federal statute. Instead, they give you a state statute that is very similar to a FRCP and its up to you to realize that the FRCP is the Federal rule that is used in the Hanna analysis.
