Learn from the Best

We’ve culled the ranks of respected law schools to find the world’s best legal thinkers and top teachers.

Don’t limit yourself to the classroom. Let the stars of legal education come to you.


Walk in Ready to Fly

We’ve broken down the basics of the typical 1L curriculum into fun, focused lessons so you can succeed from the start.

So thankful this content is coming out while I’m about to go to law school in the fall. :)

Our videos and listen-anywhere lectures give you the context before you read the text. When you start your classes, you’ll spend less time struggling and more time making connections.

Be Prepared to Be Outstanding

Law school is full of smart, motivated, and prepared students—and they’re all competing for the top marks. You don’t want to fall behind before you start.

Put me down for 7 slots. Have Theo and Juliet scholarship out the other 6 as they deem appropriate. There are no words sir.

7Sage user “kharco,” who liked the course so much he wanted to buy it for six other users.

Our course focuses on the foundations to help you be the best student you can be.

School’s Expensive. Prep is Cheap.

You’re about to spend three years of your life and six semesters of tuition on a JD. Shouldn’t you give yourself every chance to succeed?

Law School Explained is the ultimate supplement. In bite-sized lessons from top legal talent, you’ll learn landmark cases, basic doctrines, and patterns of analysis that will help you thrive.

You’re doing this for the first time. We’ve been there and back. Let us show you the way.

Legal Education for the Digital Age

Traditional prelaw courses are full of talking heads. They take a series of classroom lectures, plop them on a webpage, and hope for the best.

We took a different approach. Our audio lessons are short and easily absorbed, so you can walk through contract law while you walk the dog. We use videos to illustrate, explicate, and emphasize the main points.

Goodbye, talking heads. Hello, custom animations.

Crystal Clear Explanations

Law school professors use something called the Socratic Method. Instead of just explaining the law, they ask you to deduce it from a series of leading questions.

We gave our professors one instruction: just explain it. With apologies to Socrates, we like our way better.

Judge for yourself:


What if I change my mind about the course?

All Law School Explained courses include a 14-day money-back guarantee. If you change your mind within 14 days of purchase, just email us and we will happily refund you.

Which course should I get?

All Subjects is the best value and includes all the individual subjects at a significant discount. It covers the seven core 1L courses so you can develop a strong foundation for law school.

Individual Subjects like Property, Torts, and Crim may be good choices if you only want assistance with one or two 1L courses and don't expect you will want assistance with any others.

Do I really need to prepare for law school?

The most successful students that we knew in law school tended to supplement their classes with outside resources. One of our favorite Harvard Law alums put it this way: “Learning the law in law school is like learning how to fix your car from engineering treatises.”

We hope that Law School Explained is more like learning how to fix your car from YouTube videos. Whether you start doing that now or after you matriculate is immaterial.
