How about a week and a half before?
Eh, I wouldn't. You guys have a compressed schedule during the summer. So days you have class are ALL day. You have class most of the day hours, then need to read for the next day that night. This semester we have 4-5 days completely off to prepare for each final and it still feels rushed. Last semester we had fewer days and it was crazy. (And most started preparing heavily on weekends around Thanksgiving for finals in mid-Dec.) The problem is, classes don't slack off. So you'll have normal reading to do, plus legal practice assignments, right up until exams. The evenings/weekends when you'd move 1.5 week out is exactly when you'd need to be studying. I was hear during the summer last summer and my summer-start friends disappeared about the third week of Jul and didn't re-appear until after finals. Like...no time to grab a bite to because they were proofing papers while eating, etc. And that's only marginally busier than they were the whole month of July.
Again, I'd find an alternative unless you'll have very little to move (like a suitcase or two) and won't have to worry about turning on utilities, etc at the new place. Not sure where you are moving to but it's a lot of work getting everything set up...running to comcast, waiting for comcast to come (you'll need internet access to study), calling electric co, etc. If you're talking setting up furniture and such, forget it.
Your schedule may seem like it has holes, but add in 4-5 hours of reading a night, reviewing/outlining/supplements on weekends (with much more closer to finals than beginning), and legal practice assignments that can easily eat up 40+ hours per assignment. (Some are shorter, some are longer...longer ones towards finals.)
