it depends on your school obviously

my school is pretty much a 9-3:30 jobs about 4 times a week.

yours may also have the 1L schedule posted on their website.

Each section is different, but generally anywhere from 8:30 to 4 with the entire school taking lunch from 12-1pm.

Definitely different at each school, but generally its like a typical work day (as in about 8 hours, with 30-60 minutes for lunch).

I'll agree with everyone and add that most 1Ls do not get to pick their schedule.  It is handed to them.  You might get to pick an elective or two, especially at a school with a quarter system, but you won't get to try and have no early classes, or nothing on Fridays.  Although 2Ls and 3Ls at my school can definetly get three day classweeks that don't start before 2:00.

I have to say, I'm freaking out a bit now... My lawyer mother just told me that my 1L schedule includes some of the hardest classes available and is dumping a "summer assignment" on my lap. Basically the first two months of LS under her personal supervision... *&^%! What have I gotten myself into?!?!

Although 1L classes aren't really hard per se, you'll probably be glad that she gave you the assignment once you start school.

You could always tell her no! If my lawyer dad or step-dad gave me a summer assignment, I'd make them also give me a hefty scholarship for my studies  ;)  Otherwise, I'd assume my rightful position on the couch and not move for hours.
