what to do before law school?
« on: June 18, 2007, 11:40:48 AM »
Besides working, what is everyone doing to prepare for law school?  I am thinking of getting a legal terminology book and familiarizing myself with new terms.  I am also thinking about physically training my body to deal with the long nights of studying and strenuous requirements.

good ideas, I've doing both of these myself.  I've also started writing in a journal for about an hour a night and training myself to keep later hours and go off of fewer hours of sleep.

currently working, but this is my last week.
After this, I fully intend on getting a nice back massage, travel a bit, and finish some books I have been putting off for months.

In terms of preparation, I have a few pre-law books. I bought some of them mentioned under the "books" section of this site.
I suppose I'll read those over the summer as well.

You guys are so silly, but it reminds me of myself a year ago. Please DON'T read pre-law books. Unless you are talking about something general that talks about the law school experience. Anything that attempts to teach substantive law is a total waste of time and is likely to be harmful to your edification. Take the time to have a relaxing summer. Please forget about the legal terminology book. Total waste of time. You will learn terms as it goes in each class. Please, I beg of you - enjoy your free summer ;]

Oh and besides the coffee + scotch, develop a taste for the cold and mushy cuisine of naivete. ;p

Work. Have fun. Read for fun. Volunteer. Basically, enjoy yourself.
