Do you guys have a really chill second semester?

not really, although LRW is only 1 hr instead of 2 credit hours that we spend 3 hrs in each week


The hard part about LRW isn't the class time tho

of course not. Still a total PITA showing up for class though

I kind of like LRW. I know! I bitch about it as much as the next person who just spent 6 hours moving commas around, but it's also the only part of law school that doesn't feel like a total black box.

Yeah, I am of two minds. I hate the rest too. Maybe LRW is less bad. At least I create something, even though it's a repetitive CREAC piece of shit about a fictional person with a fictional problem.

Since we are still on LRW, 2270 < 2000, correct?
Right now, I'm unsure if I love or hate words.

LRW is definitely the one place where you can actually notice concrete progress. like "oh hey, I understand bluebooking now!" Remember at the beginning of the semester it was just like WTF ARE THESE RANDOM NUMBERS WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN THIS IS NONSENSE.

No, it is graded, just seems like less work. We had several assignments throughout the semester that were completion grades, a practice memo (completion grade) and a final memo (something like 80%). I just haven't been doing all this bluebooking stuff that you all seem stuck with. Just citations with some state specific rules but really not that bad or complicated.

Any fun exercises with signals and explanatory parentheticals?

Ours has both memos graded to force you to stress about the first one, but apparently the class grade comes mostly from the final memo anyway. LRW pls

I could be wrong. Just going off the upperclassmen I've talked to.. they hadn't heard of anyone getting an H in the class without getting an H on the open. Idk, one of my friends got P+ on the closed, H- on the open, and P in the class, so maybe the final isn't super controlling and nothing matters and what's the point of anything :?
