Congratulations to Professor Leah Christensen on her new book, “Learning Outside the Box: A Handbook for Law Students Who Learn Differently (Carolina Academic Press).
Although there are plenty of books advising students how to succeed in law school and resources for faculty and administrators on working with students who learn differently, this book offers detailed advice to the student who learns differently. Theses are students who may have a learning disability, a reading disability, ADD, ADHD, Asperger’s syndrome or any other diagnosed or undiagnosed learning disability that affects the way in which they learn.
The book focuses on reading, studying, and testing strategies that are based on empirical research and statistical correlations between learning strategies and law school GPAs.
