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.

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.
