Best Advice for Law School
There’s no getting around it – 1L requires a crazy amount of time and hard work.
Embrace it! Have fun with your classmates and support each other as much as possible.
Visit office hours and get to know your professors outside of class. Talk to
upperclassmen about the classes/jobs/activities they’ve had that interest you. Work hard,
but work smart. Success is not spending more time in the library than everyone else.
Use your time efficiently so you can set aside part of your week to see non-law school
friends and think non-law school thoughts.
