Lessons from a 1L Survivor

1L Students, 2L Students, All Articles, Humor Add comments

Whenever I find a law student’s blog with interesting observations about law school, I like to highlight the observations and let other law students know about the blog.

Today’s blog is from a 2L who was formerly a law student in New Orleans until a certain hurricane chased him out. Kristopher A. Nelson is currently a law student in San Francisco.

On his blog, in propria persona, Kris lists the 13 things he learned in his first year of law school. Some of my favorites include

  • 11. Everyone agrees that one exam at the end of a semester is pedagogically unsound, and bears little resemblance to the above-mentioned “real world,” but no one does anything about it.
  • 10. If stress is good preparation for the “real world,” I must be really prepared now.
  • 7. Lawyers are the biggest fans of lawyer jokes.
  • 1. There is one true answer to any legal question: “it depends.”
