The title of this book, 'The Slackers Guide to Law School,' might strike some as irreverent. 'Slacker' is a term of pride and even endearment among the latest generation of student, however, this book gives prospective law students a realistic idea of what exactly they are getting into. This book is not about laziness, but about succeeding on one's own terms. Thus the subtitle: Success Without Stress. Students should: (1) set their own goals and not get caught up in the hype of what everyone else is pursuing; (2) establish methods of study, fine-tuning one that works best; and (3) maintain a healthy life balance. For the careful 'slacker,' it is possible to make time for hobbies, socializing, dating or even starting a family. This reduces stress, makes law school more enjoyable, and as shown in this book can boost performance in class.
