Even if you don't know the material 100%, the professors are looking to see that you're making a legitimate attempt - if you've done the reading they'll pry the right answer from you. You will probably be given a bunch of cases to read and then brief. Another big lesson I've learned so far is that you are expected to produce quality, serious, high level work just about every day. I have received but a glimpse of the workload that is expected of an individual...basically every night will be no joke.
Lots of HW? Really? Ugh. Oh well, can't really say I didn't at least half expect it. At least we'll all have a week off before the real thing starts. Are there multiple classes each day, or is it basically just a 4 hour marathon in one class?
There are two classes - one that you meet in every day, and go over contracts, legal briefs, and outlining. Then our class joins the other SLI session and meets in the lecture hall for about 1.5 hours. There we discuss the case briefs, or start new subjects like today by Dean Anderson, which was on criminal law - very awesome. Then we break for lunch and reconvene where we met in the morning, then finish the day off. Then homework, and yes, there's lots of it...it has basically killed every night since I've started and I still have no idea what I'm doing...But the knowledge the professors have is truly amazing and I'm thrilled to be attending CUNY Law.
