Man, speaking of folks that advocate this stuff, my publisher wants me to in my book. (oh,BTW, ya'll know how me and A joke about my writing a book ; well I actually wrote one). He wants me to advocate that BS! He says our way of looking at summer prep makes us sound like a bunch of hippies and that there is no diff in one's abilities between the summer b4 law school and a few weeks in. I feel like I'd be selling out if I cave.
He can't be serious.Have your average "Pre Law" College Grad. (A joke within itself) ready Pennoyer vs. Neff a month b4 law school and then have someone read it a month after law school.You'll get completely different responses.

And unfortunately he is quite serious...hence the hold up in my getting published. But yeah in preparing the book, I encountered (trust me encountered is the right word to descibe the experience) my briefs that I did during Orientation a few days before law school started. Then I also came across my briefs a few weeks in. Both were hilariously horrible, now, looking back on it. But the second batch was a vast improvement.
Yeah that's a good point. I just can't see myself selling out like that.LOL, yeah I remember becoming a "pre-law" student for the sole purpose of getting into law school thinking it would help.
@Truone, on Pennoyer v. Neff, you are right. I am currently in this CLEO summer pre law program that preps you for law school. It is basically 3 classes held everyday of the week for the summer which are taught like a regular law school class, with crazy ass readings and all that. Anyways, we just had to read Pennoyer v. Neff about a week ago, and the professor made a point of trying to use "socratic method to the max in order to prepare us for whats ahead" and guess who the lucky student was? yours truly lol. I mean I did alright but I quickly realized no matter how much stuff or heads up you guys give us on here, it is a different ball game when you actually going through it. Its like I read the case, briefed it and thought I got the main point. Then, I get to class and its like I missed something or focused on the issue within the issue instead of the main issue or something crazy lol, you never win with these people lol. But nobody told me how stimulating law school is, yes I hate havin to sleep only 5 to 6 hours most of the night, but I love it the readings, classes, and discussions with my classmates..I know this is like kiddie stuff to you guys by now, but what do you think? Too early to be talking about I love it?l
