Do professors have law school wrong?

Postby EntJ » Mon Nov 17, 2014 11:03 pm

My set up, as I continue to go through first year, has me caring less about reading and caring more about getting an outline together and taking as many tests as I can before exams next month (all my teachers have plenty of material), yet professors seem to expect that students read into these tiny details in cases and should have full briefs/be totally prepared for class.

I just feel my time is better spent doing other things. Is this wrong?

Law school classes and law school exams are fundamentally different. For a test, it would make more sense to learn the general rule first, and then know how it applies to different sets of facts. But in terms of learning what they're trying to teach you - how judges will assess the facts and how they think, the current model is inefficient but effective.
