Reply Analyn Marx says: December 23, 2017 at 2:24 pm I'm going to do law, but I don't have a love for it so I've resigned myself to crying and depression for 5 years Reply Felecia Woolens says: January 19, 2018 at 3:11 am Awesome vid. My best advice so far is to 1. make a weekly schedule and 2. stick to it/stay organized. I could not imagine retaining and applying dense material AND keeping a mental photocopy of what needs to be done and when. Every semester should be a pathway to improving this method.

I am fascinated about how the Law works and the ways it shapes itself. I am currently enrolled to get a AAS Paralegal Studies. I do not feel completely confident to enter this field because the language barrier, but at the same time it makes me work harder to get better and higher grades so I don't get kick out of the program. In addition the extent vocabulary and terminology I am being introduce to, scares me and this makes my learning more challenging.

It's just harder to find jobs after paying so much for the degree. Reply Anon Zero says: May 6, 2018 at 10:10 am Law School–isn't hard for those who have the intelligence and talent.

I’d like to get into it but then again I’d have to drop my big passion and talent for drawing but I don’t mind ditching that for a good life and future.

As a FFA member through High School i knew that i wanted to be in a agriculture field which is why i only applied two 2 schools , 1. berry college-private (#1 pre-vet school in Georgia). 2. ABAC-public (agriculture school ) – for Agribusiness… Knowing the fact that berry college is #1 in pre-vet with a 89% of students being admitted into vet school made it really hard for me on what I actually want . I love animals and agriculture. Lately I’ve been thinking that if I were to transfer to UGA for agribusiness (pre-law) , I could go into law . I know that I may be overly sharing right now , but o still have time to make a decision. I spoke to both admission counselor because I had some personal family problems going on at the time to make a commitment , and both agreed to give me until my birthday (june15) . With all of this being said , could you give a indecisive high school graduate some advice ? Some words of wisdom ?

Reply لجين jojo says: July 21, 2018 at 10:09 am what is a law school? is it after high school? and can I leave it if I found it hard? please answer Reply B Jay says: July 21, 2018 at 10:05 pm As a law student I can confirm this. Practice tests shape the way your mind retains, also helps you to dissect info and your brain knows what is important and what is not. Truly the best way to study smart. Reply Claudia N.keji says: July 31, 2018 at 6:42 am can you please list me out type of lawyers because right now i'm so confused as to weather i should become a Criminal defense lawyer or not cause someone told me that Criminal defense lawyer is the hardest of them all…is it true tho? Reply Olbohn says: August 5, 2018 at 10:55 pm This video is pretty spot on and I'm only halfway through. I just finished law school and its insane how it took me years to realize some of these things. Really wish I had discovered this channel during law school. Reply Lucas Milagre Tavares Ferreira says: August 10, 2018 at 10:01 pm Hiring someone based on school grades is not a good idea. Often you need people that are practical and can solve problems in creative ways. Grades normally don't measure that. Reply chaosawaits says: August 11, 2018 at 3:45 am This is an amazing channel. I love it and I'm in med school! Some of it still applies and the rest is very entertaining. Reply Adventure King says: August 15, 2018 at 10:34 pm Can relate. When I did my Criminal law test there were 10 subjects we had to answer 3 questions. These 3 could be any of the 10. I studied 8 and guess which 3 showed up? Yup, 2 of the ones I did not study. Reply Rose Colon says: August 16, 2018 at 3:51 am I am so happy that I found this channel! :') Reply king james488 says: August 29, 2018 at 8:53 am it's hard because you need a millionare daddy to fund it… you obviously had that. Reply Gee Trieste says: August 29, 2018 at 2:28 pm Lack of feedback.Seems like a fundamental in learning anything.It would appear like a lack of feedback is something intentionally baked into the system.A trial by fire, that doesn't need to be there. If the goal is to actually teach the law and its application, then an easy feedback information source should be readily available to the students.If the goal is to 'toughen up' the students by putting artificially frustrating elements to learning the course materials, then yeah sure, deny the poor the students all kinds of crucial information, let them cry and stew in frustration because you haven't provided fundamental information needed to pass the tests, and just to learn.If I had a choice where learning the law was intentionally made easy and accessible, vs the 'tough love' sadistic approach of depriving students of information they need, just to make them work harder as some ancillary lesson, then I would definitely take the first choice.Take a pro se legal course, for example: www.HowToWinInCourt.com?refercode=TG0019 there you can see as clear a teaching method as it gets, since there is no hidden agenda of beating law students up just because they want to learn. Reply reicirith says: September 7, 2018 at 4:49 pm Okay, that studying method is effective for EVERY subject. Don't just try to read everything and hope you retain it, study backwards and understand the strategy and what you NEED. Don't study hard, study smart. Seriously, it sounds cliche, but it's true; it'll save you a lot of head and heartache.

Are these chickens before the eggs? Big firms or small, almost every one that I’ve met is not someone that I’d want to be around — and I’ve met a couple dozen over 20 years of my life. Reply Cllr James Ball says: October 7, 2018 at 8:42 pm As a law school graduate in the UK I'm finding this channel very interesting. I'm attempting to identify the similarities between our experiences and legal systems. I wish our constitution were codified as it would have made my constitutional law classes/paper tests much more straight forward ☺. The old joke here in UK law schools is that we dont have a legal constitution that can be identified. Great channel.

I'm from southern Europe and I'm sensing that our schools' teaching system is a lot more different than yours and it's not only because of the fact that you use case law. In our schools, our exams consist of solving cases similar to the ones in real life. Do your schools not have that kind of exams? And if they don't, what kind of exams do you have?

Is there something that I need to practise so I don't have to be bothered with it once in college? Will my grades affect my time in law school? Is it gonna be stressful? What steps should I take to becoming a lawyer? These question are what me and my friends (we're graduating and we're all taking law) can't seem to get an answer. I ask my mom (which has a friend that is a lawyer) if I can meet the lawyer she was friends with but although he is great at explaining things and giving advice, I can't seem to get an answer for these questions.
