Anyone share this sentiment.
I was in class today and a student was asked to recite the facts of a case. After every fact she would state "and I believe that this is wrong, i think that blah blah blah. I'm glad the professor eventually stopped her and told her just to answer his question.
Anyway, while i was sitting there listening to her go on and on about what she considers right and wrong I realized that I have so much work to do regarding learning the black letter law for torts and have to spend 3 hours tonight condensing and thinking out hypos in my primers.
Class is really getting in the way.
I see people in my classes going nuts with note taking like they are in a lecture course. I've taken about a 1/2 page of notes so far in the first week on some small points i missed and some legal terms my professor was emphasizing.
I think a laptop is important because the professor wont be able to discern what you're working on, what really is important, learning black letter law and analizing how the fact situations fall into those elements.
Let me know if any of you have experienced similar thoughts.
