Midway through my first week of 1l and I've been ok the amount of reading BUT frustrated with how long it's taking me to actually understand everything. Feel massively unproductive. One of my professors requires us to bring briefs in to each class and the The others don't but do some pretty intense case-long cold calls so feel like have to prepare hard all the same. I have a feeling this is normal at this stage but would appreciate any tips and insights as to what to expect the learning curve to be like. Wasting this much time seems unsustainable already lol.
Thanks in advance
I do not think that this is unusual at all.
Keep working through the material, and it will start coming together. For me, the first 3-4 weeks felt like I was spinning my wheels, by the midpoint of the semester, I started to feel better about my classes (other than LR, which just felt link a big time suck).
