Hey i was wondering if anyone had advice for a first year law student. My first semster didnt go as well as I anticipated. I did really well in undergrad, but law school wasn't the same case. Does anyone know how to do well in law school. I'm only goin part time b/c i work full time, but there has got to be a trick.

First, you have to realize that law school is different from college. A lot of people I know, including me, excelled in college but did not do that well in law school. The reason is that law school is a completely different environment. Second, once you realize that, you will learn to ADJUST. You will learn to study, read, and memorize more. That's how it works. That is also the reason why first year of law school is difficult. It's because of the adjustment phase from college life to law school life.
