Law School is REAL SON! DON'T GET IT TWISTED!
« on: August 17, 2006, 07:06:34 PM »
SON!!! IT'S REAL OUT HERE IN THESE STREETS OF ATHENS!

Why didn't none of ya'll tell me Law School was gonna be like this?

I've done more reading in ONE WEEK than I did my entire Senior Year of Undergrad.

Why do i feel like I'm back in Middle School?

- Lockers
- Lockermates
- Assigned seats
- Homework
- Same Mofo's in every class
- PACKED LUNCHES!?!

I swear I'm gonna swing on the next 2L that comes up to me and gives me that "Awww. . . it'll be ok, you just gotta deal with it" Look.

On the real tho:
I like Crim, Property, Torts, Legal Writing (so far), but Contrats and Civ. Pro is confusing hte hell outta me. We've been on the same damn case for the past three days. C'mon! Just figure out who had proper jurisdiction and move on!!!

Anyhow, what's good with ya'll?

Here is what makes Law School so difficult. Anybody would a High School reading level can understand the cases. It is the fact that the Professors don't focus on the ruling or "What happened at the end of the day" but they focus on the building blocks that the Judges used to come to their decision.

Sullivan v. O'Connor is a simple Breach of Contract case, however we have spent three days focussing on whether the courts want to allow patients to sue Doctor's based on not fufilling "Theaurputic Promises" cuz if they do then it might force Dr's to practice "Defensive Medicine" and on and on and on and on.

The Professors make stuff more difficult becaus you don't understand WHERE THEY ARE GOING!!! The exams is not what the case said, but what the Professor said. But you have to follow the Professor's breadcrumbs that he leaves on the ground for you.

It's a test of patience.

I like UGA just fine, it is a DEFINITIE 360 compared to being at an all male/all black school in the middle of ATLANTA for the past 4 years.

But I'm still chuggin' along, trying to find my way in this sea of Overachievers and intellectuals
