About how small are the sections? Just curious, because I know other schools split up into sections, but they're way larger classes to begin with. Thanks!
IIRC, all 1Ls have a section class of 20 students in their first two semesters (not the same group all year, but a different mix of twenty each semester).
Correct. Each semester you have your "small section" consisting of about 20 students. It's a substantive class (i.e., Contracts, Torts, Property) paired with a Legal Writing class that meets separately, but with the same prof and group of students. We don't have traditional sections here like at other law schools (i.e., you are Section A and you have the same 75-100 people in all of your 5 classes). Your small section/legal writing will be the same group, and then your other three courses will have more of a cross-section of the class. Then it all shuffles the next semester. I actually prefer it, because it allows you to really get to know all of your classmates, whereas more rigid sections would seem to limit your interactions with other students.
