The school year has begun for many a fresh-faced law student. Most 1Ls have likely performed the starting school rituals: they’ve bought their textbooks, chosen their classes, and watched “The Paper Chase.”
Now that these lawyer wannabes have embarked on the three year quest for a J.D. (three years for now at least), it is time for sage ones to offer advice on making the most of the experience.
Around the web, there are various lists. Here are some of our favorite tips:
1. From the Listless Lawyer, “your only goal should be good grades.”
2. From ClassBrain, “prepare to be mystified.”
3. From the Legal Underground, “don’t be an a–hole.”
Of course, we also advise that you read ATL regularly.
All of you lawyers (who still remember your first year of law school), what’s your advice? We invite you to share your law school wisdom in the comments.
