Today is my second day of class as a 2L (second year law student), and actually my most brutal day of the week (see link at bottom of this post). Everyone says that I have gotten over the hump. 1L year is supposed to be the “hazing period” and many say that it will only get better from here on out. I think that the best part of being a 2L, at least thus far, is the fact that I can actually choose what times my classes are, not to mention which classes I actually take. There is one caveat about the benefits of being able to pick my classes from here on out (other than legal drafting, which is required next semester): the classes offered at UF Law SUCK. There are absolutely no sports law/entertainment law classes, and the courses actually offered leave a lot to be desired.
I am taking two strongly recommended classes (because they are tested on the Florida Bar): Evidence and Estates & Trusts. I decided to enroll in Elections & Campaign Finance Law, because it sounds interesting and we are in a Presidential election year (plus, I am going to be the first Jewish president one day…right?). The one class with potential application to what we discuss here is Labor Law. I am pretty excited about reading for that. And my final class, which actually wraps up my week, is a weird one. Child Support Enforcement Law. Who knows, maybe it will one day come in handy. Hopefully not due of a personal matter, though.
Want to know the real beauty of my schedule? My law school week is over on Wednesday night. If you are interested in following when I will be in class, click here. Back to learning about intestate succession.
