NCCU Law 1L/1LE Orientation starts this week!

I can’t believe it’s that time of year again already :crack:

Yesterday was the 3-year anniversary of law:/dev/null starting up, meaning this week is officially Orientation Week for all the new 1Ls and 1LEs1 at the North Carolina Central University School of Law! :D

This will also be the first time since then that I’m not taking part in Orientation in some capacity — as a 1L I was part of it of course, then as a 2L I was a tour guide and part of the SBA panel, then as a 3L folks decided they were sick of me talking so they had me moderate the SBA panel instead :beatup:

But the school tends to leave us alone during this limbo period waiting on bar results, I’m assuming because few of us would be willing to be around the school when we have no clue yet how we’re going to repay our student loans.

So in my absence, I’ll follow my tradition from year’s past and link to some (hopefully) useful entries for those of y’all heading in to Orientation :D



For our past entries on Orientation, you’ve got two options:

  1. My 2L post on what to expect at Orientation; or
  2. My three-part summary I wrote as a 1L of what I went through (Part I, Part II, Part III)



You’ll hear lots of folks talking about outlines and stuff they got from other people. Some of it will be new and potentially useful — so make friends ;) — but a good chunk of it is recycled and passed down from generation to generation.

For 1L, 2L, and 3L outlines,2 go to this TDot’s Tips outlines entry so you can read the directions and mandatory disclaimer.

Also, for the 3Ls who happen across this entry, I’ve uploaded bar prep materials to “/docs/” as promised yesterday :*



Over the years I’ve compiled tips on a handful of topics. To read through those entries, click the TDot’s Tips category link on the side.

I’ve also answered a couple dozen questions folks have sent since I started law:/dev/null. To see those, go to the very bottom of the most recent Mailbag entry and they’re all listed there (including an entry just on 1L questions :) ).



If you can’t get something answered during the year, feel free to shoot me an email (the address is at the bottom of our About page). You can also reach out to me on Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter using the icons over on the right-hand side of this page.

Hope that helps, GOOD LUCK with law school, and welcome to the Legal Eagle family! :D

  1. Evening students — NCCU Law is one of the few law schools in the country with a 4-year part-time evening program :) []
  2. Yes, I have documents to get you through your entire law school experience. You’ll still have to study and update this stuff as you go though! :P []
