Instructor: The PreProBono instructor for these sessions is currently attending Harvard Law School. He scored in the 99th percentile on the LSAT and is an ex-instructor for TestMasters, a leading nation-wide LSAT test prep company. He has over 2 years of experience teaching over 350 students. We’re not kidding around here, this is a severely discounted top quality LSAT prep course. Hear what past participants have to say about our program.
