About Law School Lowdown
Law school can be a fun, rewarding and educational experience. It can also be confusing, daunting and stressful. I often found that I had more questions than answers and I repeatedly heard myself saying, “If someone would have told me this, I could have saved myself so much time, money and stress.” As I navigated through the tough first year of law school, a law review competition, moot court try-outs, finding summer and full-time employment, learning to do well on law school examinations, deciding whether to transfer to another law school, the second and third years of law school, and the bar exam, I realized that the questions did not stop but instead increased. I also noticed that year after year new students were asking me the same questions that I asked when I was in their shoes, and they were looking for practical advice from people that could help them avoid mistakes that would cost them time and money they did not have.
