Last semester, I had the privilege of sitting in a classroom and listening to some law school lectures. Now I realize that for many students that doesn’t sound like any fun. But if you teach, it is like having a lens into how your students feel listening to your lectures.
So I took my place among the students; most of them were on their laptops. And you know what I noticed?
Most of them weren’t paying attention.
Now I will be the first to admit that not all law school classes are exciting or riveting. But class is important, as it is the time when your professor (the one who will be grading your exam) is talking to you about the law. More specifically, she is talking to you about what she thinks is important about the law. And you know what? What your professor thinks is important is likely to show up on your final.
