Hey everyone! Today I am finishing up week 4 of law school and I’m doing ok. I’m surviving. Lol. This week has felt so long but TGIF! I don’t have any doctrinal classes today so that’s good.
This week I got cold called (finally) in two of my classes. In Criminal Law I got cold called on Monday but I got lucky that it was for question 3 since we had the option of doing either 3 or 6. I did 6 so I was let off the hook. I was so scared he was going to come back to me for that question (he didn’t!). Then on Wednesday I got cold called in Torts but I knew that was coming because she does panel style cold call where she makes her way through the rows so that you know when you’ll be up. Yesterday I was worried that I would get called on in CivPro, to complete the holy trinity of cold calling, but I didn’t.
Wednesday was the student organization fair and there was free food. Law school loves to give its students free food. There was pizza and ice cream. It was a nice way to relax before Criminal Law. It was a good thing too because Crim Law was a hot mess that evening.
In terms of reading, I’ve managed to read half of My Plain Jane this week but my main reading has been for CivPro. CivPro is a monster of a class when it comes to reading. Like 40-50 pages (which is like 4-5 cases) each class and it’s so dry and dense. CivPro is not riveting material. Personal jurisdiction and subject matter jurisdiction..how exciting. Luckily my professor for that class is pretty cool. One time he even made a Burger King poem full of puns (we had a Burger King related case that day).
So yeah that has been my law school week in a nutshell basically.
Thanks for reading!
