Being a post-secondary student has never been more challenging.
With increasing competition among priorities, challenging curriculum and a competitive industry, the modern law student has a full slate of responsibilities and endless opportunities for distraction. With such a hectic day-to-day life, it is vital that students are spending their time as efficiently and effectively as possible.
Does it seem unlikely that teaching methods will keep up with the realities of today’s world? Well, think again. That is where PREP comes in.
PREP was designed by the Canadian Centre for Professional Legal Education (CPLED), a non-profit organization that provides training students require before becoming a lawyer in Alberta, Manitoba, Nova Scotia and Saskatchewan. The organization is launching PREP in June 2020, designed to turn today’s law school graduates into the lawyers of tomorrow.
Built on best practices around the world, PREP delivers practical skills and competencies in an integrated approach that combines interactive, transactional learning and simulation within four distinct phases, each providing students with an opportunity to interact with lawyers, instructors and even simulated clients to improve their competencies.
It is changing the game on how law students are honing their skills. PREP not only rethinks the delivery method of curriculum, but it also allows for an unprecedented platform that is accessible on any mobile device and tablet for easy-to-use training wherever you go.
So, now we know that PREP offers us a modern way of learning, but what about balancing the demands of being a student? Here are five ways to ensure you’re setting yourself up for success:
We recognize how hard it is for today’s students to balance what they’re expected to. We’ve designed PREP with this in mind and are excited for you to engage with a modern approach to traditional law curriculum.
