0L Prep Advice

Postby Benjamin1987 » Mon Jun 18, 2012 7:04 pm

I've considered the argument and decided I will be preping (as much as possible) this Summer. For one, I just quit a job working 60+ hours a week so the chance of me "burning out" is unlikely. For another, it honestly couldn't really hurt to start wrapping my head around legal concepts and study methods.

I just finished "Getting to Maybe." I was thinking about starting LEEWS next...

For those out there who are proponents of 0L where do you recommend I go from here? We are just under 2 months from orientation.

No. The general consensus on this board is that your time is better spent on having a good time, whatever that may be. Good luck, 0L gunner.

This.

And since that advice is never taken. Go read law review articles or google some case briefs. Stop trying to prep for classes you haven't taken yet and go read something stupendiously boring that you will have to emulate for the next few years. Then go outside and thank god you have two months.
