What Law Students Want You To Know: “Law School Is an All-Consuming ‘Way of Life'”

Another entry from Professor McClurg‘s chapter on “What Law Students Want You To Know” emphasizes the unique nature of law school.  Here is one of the bullet excerpts from this section:

Non-law school loved ones need to understand that law school is a totally unique educational experience unlike any other undergraduate or graduate level program, and success in any other program does not necessarily mean that the student will succeed in law school.  They should understand that it is an enormous time commitment that must take priority if one is to succeed.  The loved one should understand that there is tremendous pressure that comes with an entire grade riding on one final exam.  Work cannot be delayed or done later.  A law student cannot get behind.
