Fall Semester Update

The past few months have gone by so very quickly. It barely seems like I had my first class yesterday. As I have looked back on my first several months of law school, I’ve realized that it has been mostly similar to what I had expected. Prior to law school, everyone that I spoke to told me how much reading there would be. I have found the classes and workload to be demanding and that there is a lot of material to learn. As I also expected, I have found cold-calling to be rather nerve-racking, but I have also found that this method of instruction keeps me constantly alert and engaged during my classes.

However, it has also not been what I expected. The professors as well as everyone that I have encountered around campus seem to take a genuine interest in helping 1Ls to succeed. Students who are 2Ls and 3Ls are quick to offer 1Ls advice about how to approach a particular class, where to find outlines, or sometimes just offering much needed words of encouragement.

I have to say that I am enjoying law school so far. There are so many intelligent and driven people here and the ideas and cases covered in the coursework have kept me on my toes, to say the least! I would say that the coursework has been the most challenging aspect of law school so far. Because of the sheer amount of material that is covered, I would say that effective time management skills are very much a necessity when it comes to being successful in law school.
