Jeremy's Weblog

I recently graduated from Harvard Law School. This is my weblog. It tries to be funny. E-mail me if you like it. For an index of what's lurking in the archives, sorted by category, click here.

Today was the first day of "Winter Term" here. What, you ask, is Winter Term? Well. 1Ls have exams after break. 2Ls and 3Ls have exams before break. And so we have three weeks in January where we get to (get to! I mean have to!) take another class. Three weeks, classes meet every day, same number of total classroom hours as a normal class but instead of twice a week for an hour and a half each session for 15 weeks, it's 3 hours a day, every day (no weekends) for 3 weeks. They do this in part so they can get some guest professors in who can't come for a whole semester but can do this 3 week thing and teach some different and special courses (like Food and Drug Law, which is a popular one here). Or so people can do cool clinical stuff. Or the Negotiations Workshop, 9AM-5PM every day, pass/fail, no exam. But a lot of classroom time. Ouch. And they also have normal classes taught by regular professors, but condensed. I'm taking one of those. Secured Transactions. With reading and a problem set every night. And an exam at the end. So that's what I'm up to for the next three weeks.

That was so unfunny. But I guess there are probably some people out there reading for content. ;)
