yeah, nobody has a clue that week, so dont think ur the only one. first week is when u get ur parking permit, u get ur checks, ID cards, all administrative stuff like that. no, u don't get taught how to brief or outline. its usually just speeches in the morning, and then u have to go to a lecture on motions to dismiss and motions for summary judgment. u basically get taught when this is raised, what must be raised, how its raised, and who has the burden of proof, and when it shifts. then on friday u have a test about it. dont worry about the test, i dont think anybody in the history of legal methods has ever failed. u also get hw every night, reading on the various motions. its nothing big.
