Introduced in the summer of 2010, the “1L Book Club” is hosted by the Department of Academic Achievement. The professional staff selects a text that will be useful to incoming law students. 1L Book Club creates an opportunity for incoming students to discuss the book and the upcoming law school experience with members of the law school community and other incoming students. Because the program occurs before students matriculate, the program is web-based.
The summer 2013 book is Talent is Overrated: What Really Separates World-Class Performers from Everybody Else by Geoff Colvin. A copy of the book, a welcome letter, and a list of the program dates will be mailed beginning in May to every deposited student who will matriculate in August 2012.
The 2010 entering class received Reading Like a Lawyer: Time-Saving Strategies for Reading Law Like an Expert by Ruth Ann McKinney. The 2010 program archive is located at: http://1lbookclub.pbworks.com.
If you have questions regarding the program, please contact Assistant Director of Academic Achievement Chelsea Baldwin for additional information.
