Imagine going from 0 to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds. That’s what the first week of law school feels like. Anyone who is or has ever attended law school knows what I mean. Every year starts the same. One day you’re registering for classes and buying books and then BAM! You’ve got a minimum of one to two hundred pages of case law, statutes and/or commentary to read per class and you haven’t even stepped foot in the classroom yet.
Ah, it’s good to be back in the groove! That might sound strange to the uninitiated but once you get to your last year you (1) know what to expect and, (2) what is expected of you. Familiarity is your friend. Habits re-emerge (hopefully they’re the good ones) and you find your rhythm. It doesn’t matter what class you’re taking because if you’ve made it this far, you can handle anything they throw at you. I don’t know about others, but I’m keeping my hands on the wheel and my eyes on the prize. From now until the bar exam in July, it’s life in the fast lane!
