A preview of Spring 2010

First day of classes ended a couple hours ago :) So I’m currently hanging out in the Fishbowl waiting for 1L Trial Team practice to start @ 12pm and then the Client Counseling Competition to start @ 4pm.

My schedule for Spring 2010

NCCU Law schedules the 1L Spring semester so it’s more intense than the Fall.  The number of credit hours only goes up by 1 (from 14 to 15) but we tack on a 6th class — and the difference in workload between a 2-credit class and a 3-credit class is negligible.

But even with the added work, and even though last semester’s grades were an unmitigated disaster (more on those in an upcoming post), I’m cautiously optimistic about how things are going to turn out.

Several of the 2Ls and 3Ls I hit up for advice have favorably compared Professor CrimLaw to MDG: sardonic wit, merciless grader, excellent instructor.  And now that we’ve covered service and jurisdiction in CivPro, MDG will finally be teaching us the nuts and bolts there too; we’re starting with the Erie Doctrine this week, then delving into the complaint and other pleadings.  Plus I’ll have a chance to start fresh in Ks… and hopefully figure out wtf is going on this time :beatup:

Off to practice.  Have a great day everybody! :D

Looks like a full schedule but I’ve heard from a lot of people that second semester is a little easier to handle–just knowing what to expect. I’m sure you’ll get into the swing of things!

I wish I had your confidence :beatup: But I appreciate your faith in me just the same :D

My only real wish for the semester is that Legal Research & Persuasion hopefully turns out to be a more useful course — and a more consistently graded one — than Legal Reasoning & Analysis… :)
