In two days, I am going to graduate from law school. This post, like Yuko’s from last week, is going to provide some reflections on my experience over the last three years.
Looking back, the first year of school was exactly as bad as everyone says. The first semester, in particular, was extraordinarily stressful. I often felt lost, I dreaded cold calls, and I never felt like I was on top of the material. Not even rose-colored glasses can improve the situation. If you’re planning on going to law school, you shouldn’t expect anything different—you’re in for a trial by fire.
