Welcome to Harvard Law School and welcome to 1L year! After two full years of law school, I still feel like I’m just figuring it out. But here are a few tips I’ve picked up in my time.
You already know how to do this.
You’ve taken classes before, you’ve read books before, and you’ve taken finals before. And apparently, you did all those things well enough to get here. Don’t let people convince you that law school is somehow completely different – the details have changed, but the general idea is the same. If you study best in the library with noise-cancelling headphones, do that. If you’re better off reading on the couch with the Bachelor playing in the background, that’s fine too. You know yourself best.
