When students sit down to take “The Focus Approach,” a preparatory course for the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) that is taught only by licensed attorneys and judges primarily from New York’s Westchester area, they are getting their first taste of a law school education. At least that is the interpretation of James A. Montagnino, special referee for the Matrimonial Part of the Westchester County Supreme Court and a teacher in the course.

“We say to the students that the course is not just a hurdle to get into law school, but will teach them how to reason critically and analytically,” he explained. “Because we emphasize that, we think students take the exam more seriously.”
