I have a lot of citations on that page. I think this is fine, since it works for the last semester, and whey I submitted it as the first draft, nobody pointed to me I was wrong.
I'm sorry, but I really don't understand what this means.
I don't really understand either, but I think what you're saying is that first semester your school was really lax about citations because they wanted you to get into the groove of things. But they shouldn't have done that because it built bad habits and now that you have to cite, you forget to do it.
In response to your question, if I were in your situation I'd drop out and stay out of law school. The grades this semester are already bringing you down enough that you likely won't have a positive outcome from law school. And the stigma of plagiarism doesn't help.
