1L: THE FIRST YEAR LAW STUDENT
YOU’LL LEARN TO THINK LIKE A LAWYER. WE’LL HELP WITH EVERYTHING ELSE.
Welcome to law school. Expect to feel overwhelmed and a little (or a lot) unsure. The good news is that’s exactly how you’re supposed to feel. The workload this first year is massive. You’ll read through hundreds of cases, write hundreds of briefs and build numerous outlines. You’re going to want to study any chance you get. What about your professors? They’ll question you with “hypos” designed to test your knowledge – and often times rattle your confidence. This is the well-established Socratic Method and how law school trains you to think like a lawyer. And after all this, you take one final exam and receive one grade per class. First year law is your most important year.
