Anyone else starting to feel like the phrase "It gets easier after 1L because you don't have legal writing" was a lie?

Nah, every bit of work that's making this year hard is the result of my own choices. "2L they work you to death" is its own sort of lie - the reality is, 2L, you volunteer to be worked to death.

Amen to both of these.

However, with everything going on in the news, Con Law in 2L as an evening student has been a bit more interesting than I imagined.

I have a Motion in Limine to write that I just can't bring myself to start typing (though I've at least started sketching out my argument). The professor just gave an extension of the deadline (from noon Friday to 5 PM Saturday), and I know I'm not going to touch it again until tomorrow night, at least. But I finished my off-brief argument for our internal moot court competition, so at least that won't be distracting me. Just my independent research.

The Note requirement is absolute ASS. The only time I cried in law school was because 8 professors declined to be my Note advisor and I had like less than 72 hours to find one.

we should ban all student notes, i hate mine

I hate law schools (so much more now that I’m in practice) for pushing inexperienced poli sci majors, most of whom literally have never worked or managed a team or been an adult more than budgeting their allowance over a semester because haha adulting is so hard, to “publish” articles masquerading like they’re geared towards a profession they literally know nothing about because they’ve had three semesters of Socratic method circle jerking from other poli sci majors who also never engaged in said profession. You learn in five minutes in practice that any article written by a student is about as useful as Wikipedia (usually even less so because students tend to exaggerate certainty where there is ambiguity because they’re being edited by other inexperienced morons).

Could you imagine how much of a fucking joke any other profession would regard its research institutions if they had, for example, first year med students writing articles critiquing or praising niche surgical specialties?

my note is on a policy question and my advisor refuses to accept that and keeps trying to get me to ground it in a question of law, hes like "but what do the courts say" and im like HOMIE THATS NOT THE ONLY ISSUE HERE

Lmaoooo SAME. Mine is on a circuit split and very policy heavy; my professor wants me to do a quantitative look at how state courts have ruled on the issue and I’m like...I have no idea how to run stata, or even GET that information without spending a billion hours on Lexis

Given that it took me over two weeks to see this (I basically checked out when the semester got too heavy, just taking a breather during exams), that's probably not a great idea.
