The Ally Program was created by an educator who mastered law school by applying proven learning strategies. After receiving a B.S. in Education and practicing brain-based, diagnostic, and rehabilitative techniques for over 15 years, Law Student Ally's creator attended law school. At the outset, her goal was to crack the code - not only to make it easier to obtain the golden ticket (the J.D.) to sit for the bar exam, but also to develop strategies to help students reach their fullest potential. She now offers her approach to others.
"My life’s passions: Education and Advocacy. I combined two strengths to create a stronger force with the goal of empowering future lawyers by helping them achieve their greatest potential. I attended law school with a metacognitive purpose to create a program to achieve my goal. After graduating magna cum laude, number four in the class, serving on law review, landing a summer internship with a world renowned law firm, passing the bar exam, and doing all this in two and a half years, it was time to offer what I know about teaching, learning, and the law to other law students. Thus, LSA was born." - Judy Z
"When I started law school, I needed help but no one could help me. Everyone else was as swamped as me. No one was going to review MY work when they barely had time to finish their own! My family had no idea how to help me with briefs, outlines, memos, or blue booking. My Ally has the time to help and knows how to do it." - Aaron S.
"I could pick up a guitar and teach myself to play or I could hire a guitar teacher and play better, learn faster, and avoid frustrating mistakes and bad habits. Hiring an Ally is like hiring a guitar teacher, but instead of protecting my investment in a $500 guitar, I’m protecting my investment in a $100,000 legal education." - Andrea B.
"When I’m freaking out, my coach knows exactly what I’m talking about – and listens." - Adam S.
