Legal writing is basically one assignment per quarter with irregular classes. The assignment is generally due about midquarter, maybe 5 weeks in. You spend about 3 weeks stressing about it per quarter and ignore it the rest.
Agreed. It can be a joke class, because you earn a 178 by virtue of a "good faith effort." For me, the effort was closer to:
1st quarter memo -- read cases, wrote bullshit in the last twelve hours, turned it in, a lot of editing.
2nd quarter memo -- two studious weekends, my best grade in the class.
Brief -- two studious weekends, hated IP, hated the subject ("new findings, new understandings" -- WTF, and I hated representing Smoogel because they were wrong), got a much-deserved "meh" grade.
Maybe a total of 75 hours for the entire year? I invested far less in LRW than any other class with the exception of Crim and maybe Public International.
I'm going to repeat my earlier comment: your weekends should not
be consumed by Law School.
