Is there any advantage to being int he law library verses your own apartment ( if you study well on your own)? For exams are there some books you can only access at the library? In all of undergrad I never went to the library...and I don't think I will want to in law school either
In my experience, no. In fact, the library is disadvantageous, because I invariably run into friends of mine and begin socializing. Now, I would never argue that socializing is bad-I think it's essential to your mental health, but when it bleeds into my study time it's a bad thing.
Last night I turned on the TV to watch something quick while I ate dinner, and I stumbled upon inglourious basterds ten minutes in. Why don't you take a wild guess as to whether I got any work done? So I'm a hopeless case at home too. I can usually focus like a laser in libraries, but I avoid the law library.
