7Sagers—I usually avoid clickbaity all-caps headlines, but YOU NEED TO CLICK THIS:

Andrew Woods is a phenomenal professor whom we worked with on our bar prep course, and one day, we had a conversation about what law schools DON'T teach. He told us that it always surprised him how professors jump right into the nitty gritty as if their 1L students have the basics down pat. He makes a point of orienting his students with a series of lectures on the fundamentals, and this one—which tackles the question of what the law is, at its most basic level—is the crown jewel. It's fascinating and it will change how you think about this profession that you're about to enter.

Annnnnd…if you want more law school fundamentals, check out our Law School Explained course:

    @"David.Busis" Would you say that these "fundamentals" that Prof. Woods thinks should be taught before the nitty gritty stuff of 1L, besides being in the content of this podcast, is in the 7Sage Law School Explained course?

    @"Learned Astronomer" Yeah, that's what we're trying for! There's a lot more to do though as we continue to build the courses out but already there's a ton of helpful stuff. For example, the Academic Success course isn't about any particular 1L subject but rather about how to get top grades your 1L year.

    Having trouble tagging, but thank you, J.Y.! Just out of curiosity, how are you looking to expand the Law School curriculum? As it stands, are you almost where you want to be, or is it still a work in progress? What are you adding to it?

    @"Learned Astronomer" I'd say about 75% done? We still need to get audio up. Video production has slowed. We also need to get text up.
