3 Resolutions for Pre-Law Students

There’s no doubt that 2018 was a weird year. From a student suing law schools for forcing them to take the LSAT to the proposed creation of a U.S. Space Force. However at the stroke of midnight last night, we ushered in 2019 with a flurry of fireworks and champagne bubbles, so you know what that means: new year, new YOU! If you didn’t reach your top LSAT score last year, 2019 brings nine chances. To help motivate you, we’ve come up with three resolutions for the new year that will make your studying a little easier, and, the best part is, you only have to keep these resolutions until you take the LSAT (unless you find that your life has vastly improved because of them).

2018: The Year LSAC Woke Up

Things have been changing on the LSAT lately. First, last year, LSAC removed the limit on how many times you can take the test. This year, they expanded the number of test dates. As of last week or so, you can finally indicate the nonbinary gender of your choice when you register for an LSAC account. It’s 2018, so it’s about time LSAC got with the program and gave people more options than just male and female.

What Happened to All the Cool Lawyers on TV?

On television, not very long ago, Ally McBeal, where Calista Flockhart captured the 90s zeitgest by navigating her 20s in a zany Boston law firm with a unisex bathroom, all while wearing high-hemmed business suits and dating Robert Downey, Jr. Before her, there was Arnie Becker and Michael Kuzak and Doug Brackman of L.A. Law’s elite firm of McKenzie, Brackman, Chaney, and Kuzak, who slept with clients after having them sign legal documents, discussed apparently mythical sexual positions called the “Venus Flytrap,” and gallivanted around a sunny Los Angeles with Reagan-era excess. Before them, there was Perry Mason, where Raymond Burr played a immaculately-coifed criminal defense attorney with the remarkable fortuity to not only represent exclusively innocent clients, but to be able to use logic, evidence, and a steely courtroom demeanor to break down the actual perpetrator on the stand.

Why is the June LSAT on a Monday afternoon?

The June LSAT is the only one offered in the afternoon instead of the torturously early morning. But do you know why LSAC has provided this unexpected bounty to us unworthy paeans?

My investigation yielded no insight into the minds of the creators, so we must conjecture in order to grasp at divine knowledge.

Study, Eat, Study: Baked Goat Cheese and Garlic Bread

You’re going to have plenty of long days studying for the LSAT. Cooking yourself something delicious is a good way to take a break and stay alive. This baked goat cheese is easy enough to take you only a few minutes to prepare and tasty enough to make your life better. Plus, the combination of goat-derived dairy with the acidity from the tomatoes has been shown to stimulate brain function, according to some studies that probably exist.
