Lawgirl, since reading this board I have seen all the great advice you have given. I know everyone studies differently and different things work better for different people, but I am curious as to your approach to finals. How many days do you devote to memorizing and how much to practicing exam answers? Do you have any advice about how to best approach/prepare for writing good exams answers and yet be able to finish within the time alloted? I felt really good about the first half of my answer on an exam today but not so confident on the last portion because of the time crunch.
I think I've been called on the most in Crim, just b/c the professor is like that with everybody. My property professor is very random and when she calls on you, she stays on you for the entire day. If she gets you into a ping-pong situation and you don't know the answer she'll wait on YOU and will tell everybody else to put their hands down. so needless to say, I stayed prepared for property throughout the semester.K never called on anybody, thus I learned the least in that class.Torts - he keeps it pretty active so usually there are a lot of hands to any question he asks.Take my first law school exam (K) thursday so tell you how it went on friday...
More then four months into the process and I have not been called on even once in any of my classes.

Sorry, but if this is true your law school is doing you a disservice. I have been called on at least 3 times in every class, and more than 10 times in one class. I can't imagine the classes at NSL are so large as to render being called on rare. Maybe the Socratic Method is not as widely used there?
