The Importance of Study Groups

Having a strong community has been an absolute must for me in law school! I have been so lucky to be surrounded by such intelligent, compassionate, and supportive people in my classes. During the first year of law school, this was incredibly important, I think, for all of us. We were able to look to each other for guidance and support as we were all learning what worked best for each of us, individually.

Despite being surrounded by such an amazing group of people, forming study groups has always been a challenge. In my cohort, people travel from all over Los Angeles (and even outside of it), work full time jobs, have kids, and the like. Often, coordinating so many complex schedules becomes impossible. However, I still manage to study with my peers virtually. Everyone is always friendly and happy to talk through and answer questions via e-mail or text. There have been times that we have also used FaceTime to study together when we can’t be in the same place.

I can’t speak for the entire student body, but I am always grateful for how collaborative and supportive evening students are.
