Con Law is about the only thing in law school that I actually understand.  Perhaps I should be pursuing my PhD in Political Science right now instead of stuggling through this infernal nonsense.

When I can't pay attention in class I usually take a deep breath, close my eyes, hold my breath for about 10 seconds, and exhale.  It does work.  Other than that, there is no way to force yourself to pay attention - it's got to come from inside.  You need to somehow learn to be interested in the material or trick yourself into thinking you are.
In times of universal deceit, telling the truth will be a revolutionary act.

~George Orwell

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

~Martin Luther King, Jr

I feel your pain, it can be really really boring.

I strongly recommend getting the Law in a Flash flash cards as well as the E+E.  I got an A in the class and I didn't read 1 case or pay attention all semester.

I don't know what you're talking about!  I love my ConLaw class, its CivPro that makes my life suck more than its ever sucked before.
