How to Read a Legal Opinion -- The Article, and Now the Podcast

Something for incoming 1Ls, and for others interested in studying law.

|The Volokh Conspiracy |

Regular Volokh Conspiracy readers may be familiar with my 2007 short essay, How to Read A Legal Opinion: A Guide for New Law Students.   For those who like to listen instead of read, I thought I would flag my recent podcast discussion about the article --  and the broader questions of how 1Ls should think about learning law and law school exams.  You can listen here: How to Read a Legal Opinion.

The podcast is 25 minutes long.  It is hosted by law professor Leslie Garfield Tenzer as part of her Law to Fact podcasts on legal education.
