Study suggestions to survive the season

Study suggestions to survive the seasonLaw students are very fortunate. They are able to tailor class schedules to suit sleep preferences, work out in the middle of the day and study wherever there’s wireless Internet. Still, there’s one season law students loathe the most: exam season. Stress, anxiety and panic attacks are all very realistic consequences that students face at this time in the semester. Often, a student’s entire grade comes down to a two-and-a-half hour exam — the pressure is undeniable.

Guiding principles

Almost all Canadian law students intend to practise law when they get out of law school. It’s different in some other jurisdictions. In Europe, for example, a law degree often leads to government service, or a business career, or a job in journalism. Europeans think the study of the law develops analytical skills that can be put to general use. But in Canada a law faculty is considered a trade school and its denizens single-mindedly look forward to setting up legal shop as soon as possible. They are anxious to graduate with everything they need to begin practising. One of the things they require but may not have is a moral lodestar. If you are entering the practice of law you should believe — you need to believe — in some guiding principles. Without them you’re more likely to mess up your life and career.

TRU law students have created an app to help lawyers, self-reps with timing of hearings.

A group of Thompson Rivers University law students have taken that concept and evolved it into an app that allows lawyers or self-litigants to know when a hearing on an application before the B.C. Supreme Court justice may occur during the day.
