I have to say - so far the second semester sucks. Partly this is because I am out of practice (two weeks - no law) but also because the cases seem to be more confusing and the assigments more intense. After talking to some 2Ls at my school, it sounds like 1L second semester is going to suck. Is this the general consensus? Are there any law schools that use the quarter system (also called tri-mester)?
