Made it thought the first week. I didn’t die, or really get called on. I did get used in a hypo in contracts, but I didn’t have to answer anything so I call that a win! For those of you who don’t know law school uses the socratic method, where they cold call on students for the answers.
I am taking Contracts, Civil Procedure, Torts, Legal Analysis and Writing, and Legal Research. Fro the record everyone else is taking Property in addition the the classes I am taking but I withdrew from Property for disability purposes.
We had our first class (Torts) cancelled on Monday for the eclipse. I saw it, it was cool. My second class was Legal Analysis and Writing. In my opinion the most work intensive, useful class. Also one of my least favorite classes. I just find it mundane, and like they spend hours explaining the things that are common sense. However, thats just my first sense, it could change. I do really like the professor.
Tuesday, was my long day, 9:30am to 2:50pm. Not all that long just the longest day I have. Three classes. Civ Pro, Torts, and Contracts, all the fun ones. Well, kinda. Civ Pro was fun, but I feel I will struggle with it the most. I just have the least experience with it. It’s all so unknown to me. Torts has the most fun cases, lots of intresting cases and stupid people that did stupid things and went to court over it. Contracts was the one I was most excited for as I wanted to be a corporate contract lawyer.
Wednesday was the same as Monday and Thursday as Tuesday. But Friday was a single 9:30am class that was Legal Research, totally a fun class but very close to Legal Analysis and Writing.
Overall they all went well and I was able to keep up with the work load. My briefs were mostly on point and I felt like I understood what was going on in all my classes. A good start!
Anyway, I will do more posts as I have time. Please let me know if you want me to talk about a specific topic. Thanks!
