1L Question: Do Smart Law Students Sit in the Front Row?

A 1L recently asked me this question. I’ve often wondered if there is any correlation between where a student sits and academic performance. In short, I believe there is none. I say this based on the fact that I know the top students in many classes I’ve taken (because they tell me their grades after the semester) and they sat in the front row, back row, and everywhere in-between.

However, I have noticed, especially in the first semester of law school, that the most aggressive students sit in the front rows. Many of them like to raise their hands and talk. However, they are often quieter the next semester after they have been humbled by receiving their grades from the first semester. In fact, many of the students I know with the highest grades are the quietest ones in class.
