Come Aug. 29, it was time to head back into classes and change out of the baseball cap into the thinking cap. Success in law school demands a great deal of discipline on behalf of the student. There is no better time-management training than the weekly routine of readings, assignments, extracurricular activities, friends, family, and if you’re lucky, maybe a little romance. It’s a tough but rewarding balancing act through most of your legal education.

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. I can confidently say that being in undergrad for four years became quite routinized; everyone knew everyone. Law school is a whole new kettle of fish, just as undergrad was in the beginning. And so begin the questions of self-belonging and existential placement.
A transformative experience. The marathon of a lifetime. A true test of endurance.
