Ask any lawyer whether they were truly ready for law school and they’ll likely say, “No way!”
Now, sure, lots of people like to exaggerate the difficulty of an experience that they survived — especially when advising a newbie. However, when it comes to reflecting upo the first year of law school, that type of response is likely genuine.
Law school vs. undergrad
Law school is one of the most unique learning experiences out there, and its law school’s uniqueness that also makes it one of the most difficult. The pedagogy and testing methods are entirely foreign from what students experience in college. Consequently, students’ undergraduate study and test-taking skills don’t adequately prepare them for 1L.
It’s as if you’ve trained hard for a traditional marathon and are in top physical condition, but on race day you’re told that you must “run” 26.2 miles on your hands. At that moment, if someone asked you whether you were ready for that race, you’d also likely say, “No way!” — and you wouldn’t be misrepresenting your lack of preparedness.
