All right fellow 0L's, as many of you graduate and begin to embark on whatever journey your last summer before law school has in store, what are you planning on doing between now and day 1 to prepare?

Let's all make a deal right now that we won't do anything to prepare. Spread the word, I don't want to be reading shit this summer.

lulz...At one point I was considering going all out LEEWS and such, but now I'm honestly not planning on doing too much...working, reading pls2 and such, and spending time with friends. I plan on focusing on law school stuff when, you know, I'm actually in law school.

I'm going to get as much of the 1L job search stuff done as I possibly can (resume, cover letter, addresses of firms if I'm feeling ambitious). I figure I can read E&E's and pray that my prof covers those topics and teaches it the same way, or I can prepare for something that I know I will need. That's why I won't be doing any substantive prep. That said, I will do Leews and GTM.

Oh and I'm working with some lawyers so hopefully I'll make useful contacts.

I figure E&Es might be helpful, but they're going to be kind of redundant. I'm gonna leaf through a law and econ textbook, and a statistics for lawyers textbook. Also, G2M.

So I guess that puts you under "drinking as much as possible" and "doing absolutely nothing?"

For the next week. Then working for a while. Then spending some time on a beach in Florida.


Actually, yeah, those all fall under your definition.
