Best Advice for Law School
1. Approach your doctrinal classes with an open mind. You might be surprised at what areas of law interest you. I expected to be bored by property but ended up loving it (especially land use and zoning).
2. Don’t be afraid to go to office hours. Your professors want to help you and are happy to answer questions during this time.
