Law students will share different opinions about the best way to prepare for law school in the summer before your first year (whether it’s reading up on how to take law school exams, or perfecting that summer tan and putting off work for as long as possible). As a law student about to enter my 2L year, I’ve been giving advice to several incoming law students that has little to do with the academics of law school, but probably matters a great deal to a student’s performance and general well-being over the three years of a law school program. That topic is law student housing.
So you’re ready to start law school? You’re eager and willing to get ahead, but you don’t know what to do. You’re also a bit paranoid about what to do with your last few month of freedom. Well, I’m here to help.
