General Board / Re: Soon to be One L with a question...

Hi, it's difficult to predict how much time you'll actually need to spend doing law related stuff (studying, etc) outside of class, but I definitely agree that you need time to yourself outside of lawschool. I'm a 2L and during my first year, we were instructed not to work (or at least not more than 20hr/wk).

But here's my problem with that - about half of the people I knew in my 1L class (not me though) went out partying at least 2 or 3 nights a week and definitely on weekends. There were organization functions/clubs to join and etc. I'm sure this reached 20hrs/week occasionally, but no one gave it a second thought. Because of this, I went ahead and did whatever extracurricular activity I wanted to do as long as I was prepared for class the next day. So my advice? Just stay prepared for class, then your free time is yours to spend however you see fit.

HTH,  ;D
