Yoda's Twenty Pieces of Law School Advice

1. A student uses the Law for knowledge. Never for attack.
2. Do or do not attend class. There is no online recorded lecture database.
3. Marathons exams are; you must yourself pace.
4. Extracurricular activities, for sanity, get involved you should.
5. Carefully chosen, study groups helpful they can be.
6. Expensive books are, but buy them anyway.
7. In your assigned seat you stay, to avoid the professor angering.
8. You must learn to use the power of the Uniform Commercial Code.
9. Size matters not. Some professors skinny can teach good quite.
10. Law review is the path to the dark side.
11. The cases for class carefully brief.
12. The very Republic is threatened, if involved the Critical Legal Scholars are.
13. A Jedi's strength flows from chapter 9 of the Bankruptcy Code.
14. Study you did not. That is why you fail.
15. Great warrior. Moot court victory does not make one great.
16. The fear of loss is a path to seeking reliance damages.
17. Ready are you? What know you of ready? Have you the Gilbert's outline read?
18. A law student must have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind, the longest outline.
19. Blind we are, if the fine print at the bottom of most contracts we cannot see.
20. There is another... administration of the bar exam.
