I’m revisiting ‘Equity and Trusts’ although my initial exams are over…I decided to use ‘Equity’ as my essay topic for different study module (for comparative law). It’s a good thing that I still have my Equity class presentations handy. We’re back at it! Let’s hope these essay(s) turn out well. I have two essays on comparative criminal justice and international criminal law. One problem question on a case scenario…and there’s that Bar Aptitude test. 🤞🏻

What they didn’t tell you about law school.
1. You’re going to struggle, in more ways than one, but mentally and emotionally especially. Law school isn’t just an intellectually challenging program, but it’s mentally challenging as well. People in law school are used to being the smart kids of their class, but you get to law school and you’re no longer at the top, you might even be average, or below average, but that’s okay.
2. Doing little things like, going grocery shopping, or cleaning your apartment, are much more than chores. That’s time you should be spending studying, and working, but what it actually turns into is a break from studying. Yes, grocery shopping is a break.
3. All your hard work won’t necessarily put you at the top of your class like it did in undergrad. I spent 12 hour days studying for finals for a month straight and i turned out to be average. It’s a hard truth to accept but it’s the way it is.
4. Don’t compare yourself to others. It is so hard to not look over at your friend who’s already a week ahead on readings and not feel dumb, but you just have to realize everyone does things at their own pace.
5. Law school becomes your identity. Everywhere you go you’ll throw in the fact that you’re a law student into every conversation without even trying.
6. If you’re anything like me, you’re going to miss your family a lot. You won’t get to see people outside of your fellow students very often, but you kind of all become a family by the end of the first semester anyways and have each other’s back.
7. You will learn so much in short amount of time. I’ve just started my second semester and i have learned so much more than i have in my entire life.
8. You will change as a person. Over break i came home and everyone noticed how i talk different and hold conversations and speak in a more confident and intellectual way. Kind of flattering but kind of freaky, but you’re going to start analyzing conversations in a nit picky way so just try to watch yourself.
9. Law school is like high school all over again. It’s a small class with the same people every day, there will be drama, just try to avoid that.
10. It will be the hardest time of your life, but it will make you a better person for it. One semester in and my eyes have been opened in a whole new way. I’m learning how i can be a better person, an advocate, and what i can do to change the world.
11. You’re going to feel like you’ll throw up before every exam, no matter how prepared you are. Eat light the night before and breakfast that day, and just bring water, trust me on that one.
