Current Law Students / Re: Tips for 1L's on your first day
« on: August 21, 2007, 09:59:43 AM »
I appreciate the tips.

If anyone has anymore tips to add I'd appreciate that too.

What about gunners? Should they be shunned or admired or what? How do we recognize them?

I'm talking to a fellow soon-to-be 1L and he says that I am mistaken for believing I can get by without using large quantities of study aids.

He predicts that within two weeks of law school, I'll start using study aids.

Is this true? And if true, then what study aid do you recommend?

Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

I'm an entering 1L, and yesterday a fellow entering 1L was shocked because I didn't know how to write a brief. So now I feel quite far behind and a bit uneasy. What do I need to know before I start class? What will I be expected to do without it being taught?

Also, does anyone have a good website that explains a good format for writing case briefs?

I would really appreciate any advice on this. I feel far behind, considering that others have been reading law prep books this entire summer.

Thanks guys.

Also my computer only goes 2 hours on battery power.

I type much quicker than I write. I just don't like the idea of bringing a computer to class.

I've noticed that there's a lot of talk around here about which computer to use during class. I haven't started law school yet, and I have not once ever brought a laptop to any of my classes. Is it extraordinarily difficult to write notes by hand, the old-fashioned way, in law school (T14)?

I'd appreciate any advice or information on this.

Georgetown Law is well-known for it. I think New York or DC are the cities generally associated.

I'm about to start 1L at a top tier school. I have heard that it is very tough and that the homework and reading is heavy. Can anyone give me an idea of how heavy?

Also, I am considering a part-time job teaching an LSAT class for Kaplan. I have heard though that having a part-time job will put me at a significant disadvantage because of the enormous work load 1L bestows upon its students.

Any experiences or advice you can share with me?
