Can someone give me an example schedule of what your week looked like during your 1L fall semester?

So if I understand that correctly, the letters in brackets [A] are your cohort and if I get put in A then I'd only have those classes?

Correct. But those sections are further subdivided for Legal Practice and Legal Research Methodologies.

Thank you. Final clarification - if I was put in section A under that schedule, I'd have Property class 4 times a week?

Yes. For my year sometimes a section would have a class for 54 minutes each time and four times a week; sometimes it would have a class for 72 minutes each time and three times a week.

Looks to be, yes. But it may not be set in stone yet.

When do we usually find out what section we are in? And is there any reasoning behind what section you are put in or just random?

Just checked my e-mail. Last year it was 8/18. I have no idea about the reasoning behind. :|

So there is basically no way I can buy my books "early" (i.e. soon) because I don't know what section I'll be in?

You won't know until you can see the professor's syllabus too (limited by when they decide to put it online). Usually you will get an email from your professor telling you what to buy; I think some of my professors sent out emails with first-day reading assignments.

Agree. Also I think there is no point in buying textbooks now because even if you have them now you won't know what to read or how to read them (some professors have specific requirements on how to read cases). I think the only concern is whether books will arrive on time when you purchase them online since some sellers are pretty crappy.

Seeking advice for course selection. Is a combination of administrative law, commercial law, bankruptcy, trust & estate, moot court & journal too stressful?

Depends on which journal and how seriously you take moot court.

In terms of time commitment, is it LR and then everything else or do different secondaries require different amounts of time?

On a related note, did anyone do a secondary and regret it?

It seems a little heavier than I'd have liked but the good news is Bankruptcy and Commercial Law overlap a ton. The last month of Commercial law is stuff you'll already know

He knows everything about everything. He also teaches Fed Income Tax, American Legal History, Con Law, Property, and a bunch of other courses. He basically teaches whatever they need him to or whatever he's interested in.

Unsolicited advice: for the rising 2Ls who want to take fed courts, I highly recommend taking admin law first. It's not necessary at all, but it's helpful.

If the same employer is coming to multiple programs, should we bid them for both or only one?
