An Illinois (UIUC) 1L answers your questions herein
« on: March 18, 2009, 02:50:04 AM »
There being no search function, and having not found such a thread on the first seven pages of this forum, I hereby start the topic.  (If I'm mistaken and there is one, let me know and I'll close this one out.)

I'll try to get on at least twice a week to answer whatever questions ya gots.

Brief summary: this is the best of all possible law schools, and you too will love it.

And so it begins. . . .

Nothing yet?

Well, let's see.  For starters, the roughly 180 students admitted in each class year are put into three sections of 60 each, which in turn are divided into two subsections of 30 each.  There are also around 10-20 LLM students, visiting students/scholars, and others who are divided among the sections.

Each semester, you get two doctrinal classes with your full section, one with your subsection, and then the legal research and writing and advocacy classes are done with your subsection.  The sizes seem pretty good, and the instructors make themselves readily available for questions after classes.



We also get free beer on Thursday afternoons.  And cookies!
