I will discuss three common mistakes to avoid that can result in an essay that might hamstring your law ...

Ways Law Students Get Stressed

There is another process going on in law schools that also can cause stress. It is the subtle but pervasive process of being socialized into a profession. I can’t say that I know much about this process from an academic or theoretical perspective, but I do know what I see. Every year I see the process of legal education change students in some rather fundamental ways. Some students take the new skills they are learning as law students and absorb these skills as fundamental parts of their personality. In other words, these law students learn the role of lawyer. For example: Being able to see and advocate for both sides of any argument is good. Losing your own personal moral, ethical or aesthetic. Judgment about right and wrong, true and false; that is bad. Being confident in stating a posit...

SYMPTOMS OF LAW SCHOOL STRESS

You’ll have some significant change in your personal habits: you’ll lose your appetite or you’ll want to pig out all the time; you’ll want to sleep all the time or you won’t be able to sleep; you’ll want sex all the time or you’ll never want sex again.

You’ll freeze: You’ll find speaking...

How To Prepare Yourself For Scholarship

Luck comes to those that are well prepared. When I was a kid, I used to believe that luck is something divine and only from God. I believed that luck will just come to you one day when its your turn.
