 It has been said that lawyers use words like surgeons use scalpels. The writing skills that produced excellent college essays are not the same as those needed to convey precise information in a short period of time. This workshop will teach students to write an efficient and effective first year exam.

Thanks to Student Outreach Committee Co-Chair Liza Sohn we have photos from the Chris Chan Exam Writing Workshop that took place on Friday, Nov. 4, at New York Law School.  Approximately 50 law students from Brooklyn, Cardozo, New York Law School, NYU and Touro, attended.  Also present from AABANY were Ben Chan, co-chair of the Student Outreach Committee, Richard Tsai, co-chair of the Government and Public Sector Committee, Francis Chin, AABANY Director, and Sam Yee.  Richard, who is also court attorney to the Hon. Michael Stallman, provided some great tips and pointers to round out Chris Chan’s presentation.


On Friday evening, October 21, Hofstra Law School APALSA hosted the first Chris Chan exam writing workshop of the season. Law students from Hofstra, St. John’s and Touro were in attendance. They experienced the Chris Chan method of breaking down and analyzing law school exams to help demystify the process of taking law school exams and excelling at them. The next one will be the Upstate Roadshow taking place at Syracuse Law School.  Thanks to Liza Sohn, Student Outreach Committee Co-Chair, for the great shots.
