This is it. My LAST year of law school. My last first day of school and my last summer vacation. It’s sad but it’s exciting because on the other side of this year, come May I’ll have accomplished so much and will have much to be proud of. My 3L year is starting with exciting news of prospective post-graduation jobs, leadership positions within the TU law community, and solid friendships that I know will last well beyond graduation.

Thursday night was the annual TU Law Talent Show, where classmates, professors and community members got to show off some amazing talents from song and dance to poetry readings and puppy talents. This charity event + silent auction was an amazing way to kick back and enjoy a night filled with laughter and awe at the amazing hidden talents the TU community has. PLUS, since it’s a charity event, you can feel good about yourself for taking a break from the books. I actually bid (and won!) my first silent auction for tickets to the ballet and almost went home with a puppy brought to the event by local animal shelter. It was a great start to an incredible weekend.

1. The Community – As a smaller school, you really get to know your classmates, your professors and the members of the TU Law community. Whereas other law schools promote an environment of cut throat competition, at TU you know that if for some reason you have to miss a day of class, or missed something a professor said, a classmate will be more than willing to help you out. This spirit of cooperation and good will extends outside of the classroom as well. This past winter, when the roads were icy and covered in snow, students who were more experienced in driving in snow and had SUVS volunteered to help anyone having issues getting to class.

In undergrad, I didn’t worry about finals until 2 weeks prior to exams, and several all-nighters would usually ensure a good grade. Law school finals however are a whole different beast.
Nov. 1st begins the countdown for finals which usually aren’t until the second week of December. You’re probably wondering what kind of exam takes 6 weeks to prepare for… the kind of exam that is 100% of your final grade. How’s that for added pressure?

Law School, especially your first two years sometimes feels like a high speed race. There is always something to be done, assignments to read, legal writing papers to turn in, student organization meetings to attend, internships to apply for, finding ways to beef up your resume, and finding ways to make the most out of law school in the short 3 years (yes short, because times really starts to fly when you’re in the thick of it) that you’re here.

Law school is a huge time commitment (duh). Chances are during your 3 years in school you will be the busiest you’ve ever been, with all types of pressures from doing well and preparing for classes, strict deadlines, commitments you’ve made to internships, or student organizations and the miscellaneous that will inevitable pop up. This doesn’t leave a lot of time for much else, and law school will consume most of your focus for the next couple of years.
