How to Survive Law School in 6 Easy Steps

"Silly things do cease to be silly if they are done by sensible people in an impudent way." --Jane Austen

I know all of you are just dying to attend law school now that I've started. ;) Therefore, I've compiled a handy dandy set of tips just for you!

Tip #1: Have confidence. What you say matters very little compared to how you say it.

"I think the fluffy bunny effect would work wonderfully in this instance," Carli says enthusiastically.
"That doesn't make a whole lot of sense," her professor responds. "But you sound like you know what you're talking about, so I'll let it slide."
Tip #2: Bring all your books to class, even if you don't have assignments in them that day. You'll look prepared--and build muscle at the same time!

Tip #3: If you look tired, your professors will believe that you were up all night studying.
Carli falls asleep during class.
"Wow," her professor says. "She's dedicated."
Tip #4: Keep talking--and don't forget to use big words and legalese that sound right. It can confuse them into believing that what you say is true.
"I believe the issue in the case was whether or not Jones could have personal jurisdiction when in 1985 a similar case was determined they could not, but the differences in cases were immense and..."
...Or put them to sleep.

Tip #5: Do something that will get you noticed.
Carli comes to class wearing a sombrero. She is known from then on as the crazy student with the sombrero.

At least people recognize her now.
Tip #6: If you really want to succeed in law school...don't follow any of this advice.

Because absolutely none of it would actually work!
