Law School Summer Classes...

Postby stinger35 » Mon Feb 15, 2010 4:24 pm

Just wondering what the general thoughts about summer school classes are. I am going to have to take at least one because I am most likely going to transfer and possibly two. (I am also working for a federal judge this summer). I was just tryin to get a grasp of how miserable this was going to be and if anyone thought that summer classes were typically harder/easier than typical 1L courses or typical Fall/Spring courses.

I took crim, a 4 credit class, last summer. It is probably one of the easier LS classes, so that may have had something to do with how I felt about it. But, taking a summer school class is not a bad way to go, I think. I bonded pretty well with my classmates. You only have one or two classes to read for, rather than four or five. This allows you to get much deeper into the materials than you would otherwise. The downside is that we had class four days each week, Monday-Thursday, for 2.5 hours. The upside to taking a summer class is that you may be able to forgo taking a commensurate number of units in the fall or spring semester, which will ease your load somewhat.

I took property last summer to catch me up with the full time kids- not too bad. I recomend taking it at a school other than your own as a visiting student. that way the grade only transfers as a P/F (in my case, I just had to get a C- for the credit to transfer).
