I was recently made the Online Editor for volume 72 of the Louisiana Law Review. I was honored to accept the position, though I’m not sure how they figured out I knew about internet stuff. On a related note, the La. Law Rev. decided to accept my Comment, An Uncertain Prescription–Medical Malpractice Actions in Louisiana, for publication. It should be published sometime next year.
My first year at LSU Law is in the history book. My first semester GPA was 3.5, second semester was 3.756 and cumulative is 3.628. Best grades: 2nd semester Legal Writing (4.0) and Constitutional Law I (4.0). Worst grades: Torts (3.1), Civil Procedure II (3.4) and Legal Traditions (3.4). I was in the top 10% of my first semester class; but for the entire year, top 4%–ninth in my class of 229.
All-in-all, I had a great year. I learned a lot of interesting stuff and worked my behind off. Law school is to college as college is to kindergarten. Be prepared to spend outrageous amounts of time reading, studying and writing.
Thursday is the beginning of the 1L law student orientation here at LSU Law. Already, we have been issued several reading/homework assignments for next week and I’ve begun the work. In addition, we have a couple of cases we need to brief for the orientation.
I’ve met several students in my section (meaning we will be sharing a lot of classes) and will enjoy getting to know them. We had a party for our section and had a bit of fun.
