You base this on what? I got good grades all through law school and missed plenty of classes. What you say is flat out wrong. Class attendance, while helpful, is not necessary to succeed in law school.
Not attending class may have worked for you guys. But I'm sticking with my original advice. Participate in class and you'll be better off than you will be if you don't. I really don't see how this is at all controversial.

If you miss more then something like 4 classes you get dropped from the class (depending on how long each of your classes are and how many days a week they meet).Actually, the ABA requires attendance, but they don't require law schools to take attendance.... My school and many other higher ranked schools don't take attendance.

can you still pass all of your classes during ur first year even if u dont go to them?I find most of my classes very disorganized and unhelpful. It seems like we are constantlyjust talking about random hypotheticals that doesnt really relate to what we learn from the book.To put it briefly, I dont think i am getting ANYTHING out of my classes and even some things I do get, I seem to forget very quickly (or could have learned the same thing by reading casebook myself)So, is it possible to pass your final exams without going to class?Has anyone done this as 1L? Any input would be appreciated.
I miss class all the time, have good grades, go to a good school, and have a Biglaw offer. Get over yourself dude. If you want to go to class because you want to, awesome, but don't act like you need to go to succeed in law school because you flat out don't.
