Monica Russell hits the books in her first week of law school.
Everyone being in the same but ultimately unknown boat makes life much easier when trying to mingle with 300 new faces.

b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-CANADIANLawyer_Columnists_lauren_berdock.jpgEntering law school, you will find among your peers science majors, math wizards, human rights activists, corporate sharks, and many, many BA students.

It was compulsory to study topics from all areas of the bar and collect a year’s worth of general legal knowledge.
