  • I was lucky enough to chat with my bestie about her perspective on law school now that she's graduated! There are some things that only experience in law school can teach...

    I’m in high school, and at my high school we have academies. I’m in the academy of Law and Public Safety. In three years, I’ve learned basics of criminal, civil, family, & contract law. The point of me saying all this is that I have interest in law, however I’m still really confused :// how do you know if you’re fit for law? && what do you even major in undergrad.
    I really appreciate this video!! It’s really cool to see someone who was also unsure about law in high school

    This video was really informative... so I’ve been considering going to law school. However, if I’ve already taken a gap year between high school and college (took a year off of school to work and figure life out basically) do you think it would be beneficial to take another year off between undergrad and law school?
    Thx :D

      Depends on your personal situation (finances, interests) but in general, yes!

    What Anna said about combining logical reasoning from math, with the skills used in writing and analyzing texts is the same reason I'm thinking a lot about law even though I'm a junior studying computer science. I can't see myself developing software for much longer. Law may be the answer...

    I am currently in law school taking Constitution law. My school divides it up into Con I and II. Im in Con I dealing with the separation of powers etc. I am bored to death and does not help its the professors 1st time teaching the course. How do you suggest to stay engaged when you absolutely cannot get pumped up about the subject matter??

    • For the Time Being

      It’s definitely a struggle for me too sometimes! For Conlaw I think it can help to think about the ways in which these rules are operating and being challenged in our current state. For example, the power of the Supreme Court to decide issues that some people think should fall within the legislative realm only, or whether Trump can fire Mueller since Mueller is within the executive branch, all have implications within the separation of powers doctrine.

    I m not american so i don t know the details and i have a question , is getting to law school post graduating highschool or do you need to go through some other studying type of way before?

    • For the Time Being
      For the Time Being  8 bulan yang lalu +1

      There are many reasons. To expand your mental horizons and learn different ways of problem-solving, for one. Some lawyers, like patent specialists, also benefit from having a scientific or technical background. Finally, there are people who simply want to pursue other intellectual interests or are interested in trying out different careers and would like to have a few different skill sets and substantive expertise areas under their belt.

      Then why go through the trouble of majoring in something else then applying for lawschool? 🤷‍♀️

    • For the Time Being
      For the Time Being  8 bulan yang lalu

      Doesn’t have to be law! People major in anything from English to biology to economics.

    Any advice for a person planning to attend law school part time?

      I work ft and go to an evening pt will be tough but what has helped me is to take it at my own pace and not feel pressured to take 11 credit hours when I can only realistically handle 2 courses. There is ALOT of reading and now legal writing courses...I do not regret my decision of attending but also you have to be aware of how much pressure you can handle juggling everything

    • For the Time Being

      I wish I did, but no, sorry :/ we don’t have a part-time program as far as I’m aware, so I don’t know what it’s like. Best of luck though!

    You said in other videos that it is important to take our own notes- are there some tips for you to take good notes? Do you just write down everything? Also, are there some things you wish you had known (specifically a month lol ) before you started your first year? What is your daily routine like?

    • For the Time Being
      For the Time Being  9 bulan yang lalu +2

      Hey Gabbie, I have videos on both of those topics :) check them out on my channel! For note-taking, I actually take most of my notes before class while reading the cases. Then during class I will add relevant notes from the professors or good points from other students

    I think if I went straight through, I would have been really burnt out. I did take over a decade off, but it really gave me time to ensure that the huge financial plunge is worth it! Thanks for the video and I can't wait to watch more.

    thanks for the video.
    could you also recommended school supplies? ie laptops types, ipad pros, apps, software etc that you found helpful?
    also, did you find it possible to study "paperless" as a law school student, ie was access to e-textbooks/pdfs instead of paperbooks readily available?
    thank you

    same, I'm a biology major who's interested in law and tbh logic games and basic scientific method are very similar and I'm surprised this career path isn't more popular
