Quick question

Postby redgreenpaper » Thu Nov 03, 2011 4:17 pm

Is law school mainly comprised of writing assignments and essays? Just wondering because I'm a person who much rathers studying from books and notes then writing essays, even if the tests are comprised of essay questions.

Generally, all first year classes except legal writing are based entirely on one final exam at the end of the semester, which is usually a bunch of essay questions. After the first year, there will be classes available which are graded based on papers and others based on exams like the first year classes. You can choose whichever classes suit your interests, although most schools will also have an upper level writing requirement as well.

Okay. I'm in Canada if that changes anything.
