December already. Hard to believe, isn't it? Where did November go? For L, it went into writing a novel—congratulations, L! Fifty thousand words (approx. 200 pages) might not sound like much, but try pulling 50,000 words out of your head in 30 da... [Read More]

Thanks for taking the time to write such a thoughtful post. Trust me, we need more advice like this.

DG

Thanks for the great advice!

CS

Great advice. I'd like to hear the Law Review story if you'd like to share.

gretchen

Thanks for such deeply sensible advice.

John P.

Great advice! I would offer an additional word of comfort for newbies: The people who spoke the most in class and/or boasted about how hard they were working were not the ones who got the best grades.

BTW -- I'm in my 6th year of practice, and I still use my own (somewhat embarrassing) sketches to help me understand complicated matters. This seems like one aspect of Power Point that is highly underused by speakers.

I'll post my thoughts on law review one of these days, perhaps in the springtime when the 1Ls are worried about it. But my post yesterday about the Blogbook should give you a sense of my general tolerance for the culture of obscurity of law review. It seems like a tragic waste of talent and brainpower on trivia, the worst kind of hazing, and this wierd enforced false heirarchy that struck me as really silly. And I had a job I really dug working at a venture capital company, where I was learning about business at a great pace, and the opportunity cost to trade that in for red pencils and citation form and 3Ls with mediocre intellects and inflated self-importance was just too high. Oops, I just told the story. Oh well.

Richard Ames

Oh yeah, IRAAC! I forgot all about that from my school days. Charming little rule.

Richard Upton

Good tips. You may find of interest some school tips I've written at http://www.rickupton.com/school-tips-for-good-grades.htm

SM

Awesome, thoughtful tips. Particularly the idea of finding what works best for *you*. Like things aren't competitive enough without worrying whether your study technique is as good as everyone else's... :)
