Your PA team will do its best to schedule PA meetings in those dead times so you're not hanging around with nothing to do for too long.
If possible, you'll want to set up your computer on the UVA Law network (both for wireless & printing capabilities) & purchase books before orientation begins. The clerks at the UVA Law Bookstore (housed in Slaughter Hall within the law school) are very efficient - once you find out which section you're in, just stop by & tell them and they'll set you up with the books you need. This is a good time to take advantage of the metered parking spots directly in the back of the building. Law school books are heavy, and you won't have a locker yet. Plus, parking is only $0.25 for 30 minutes & it's unlikely that all the spots will be taken as lazy/sleepy 2Ls and 3Ls won't be running late for their classes yet.
You'll also want to bring your checkbook with you to Orientation if you're interested in getting a locker. Your PAs will let you know the details, but they only accept checks (I think the fee is around $25 for the year). It can also be convenient to leave a checkbook in your locker, if you're not accustomed to carrying one, since you'll need checks occasionally for organization dues and law school events.
