Top 10 Things Lopez & Kahane Learned About Law School

Michael Lopez at Highered Intelligence offers The Top 10 Things I Learned About Law School. His bottom line:

You don't need to be the top of your class -- you need to do the best you can, to be balanced and happy, and to be fair and just to your fellow students. You need to respect your professors, and learn the law.

Professor Eugene Volokh especially recommends tips 1, 2, 4, 5, and 10.

If that's not enough for you, Lopez's co-blogger Jeff Kahane offers 10 tips of his own . I'm not sure about tips 4, 5 and 6; but everyone's different. My experience is that law school is as about as hard as you make it, I'm hoping that first semester grades don't determine anything more than first semester grades, and yes, the social pressure to get a firm job can be intense. If that's not why you're in law school, you might just avoid those interviews with firms that you'd never want to work at anyway. That's what I'm trying, anyway. I'll let you know how it goes.
