What to pack for law school????
« on: May 01, 2009, 12:35:57 PM »
What should a person pack/buy who is moving away to go to law school?  Apartment living in the city.  What to take to class?  Do law students carry backpacks? Briefcases?   How to dress for class?  Anything that one might not normally think of?


Thanks!!!!!

Please do NOT show up with a briefcase.  Take a backpack or whatever you're comfortable with or normally use for books.  Dress just like you did in undergrad.

Find out if your law school allows computers in class (most do).  If not, you'll obviously need stuff for taking notes.  Also, highlighters and pens and junk.  Really, law school is just like undergrad in so many ways.  Whatever method worked for you there will likely be pretty effective.  It got you this far!

Honest:  Depends on the school.

Some they aren't such a big deal.  Some, if you show up with them you'll be an outcast.  I say, not in the first week until you find out which your school is.

Fair enough.

Honestly, the most essential thing that I can think of is a good laptop.  I can't think of anything else that you wouldn't be able to buy when you saw a need arise.

Whiskey and a gun, preferably a shotgun.
