Welcome back! Time for a mid-semester reality check! Second semester is interesting in law school because you’re in a different position than you were last semester. You have a set of final exams under your belt and you may feel a little more prepared than last semester. Conversely, you may also have more obligations outside of the classroom, like job hunting, extracurricular activities, and moot court — which can lead to misconceptions about where you should be academically mid-semester.
It’s time to get real. But don’t stress! Here is your (helpful) mid-semester reality check.
In this episode we discuss:
- How often should you be outlining?
- The importance of practice
- Steps to writing legal analysis
- Making the most of your professors’ office hours
- Handling all the extra things you may face in your second semester (job hunting, moot court, etc.)
- Time management tips for the rest of the semester
- Why self-care is so important
- Free resources in law school that are available to you and why you should use them!
Thanks for listening, and we’re looking forward to many more great years ahead!
