Advice for First-Year Law Students

best-law-school-prep-books-o

It’s mid-August and that means law school orientations are beginning all across the country.

New students will begin law school by getting plenty of unsolicited advice from their fellow students and law professors.

But they’ll get almost no guidance from practicing attorneys.

So I decided to make this video giving my thoughts on law school and how it relates to the real-world practice of the law.

My tips are as follows:

  1. Forget about your LSAT score.  It’s meaningless.
  2. Realize that law school grading is often arbitrary.
  3.  Use study aids.
  4. Just relax a little.  How you perform in law school has little to no relevance once you begin practicing law.
