University Diaries: Law School and The Fool

Level 1: What Is An A?

It was not until late in my law degree that I really came to understand what an ‘A’ mark meant. Once I did, however, I finally began to understand what kind of work I had to put in, and produce, in order to get those top marks. Therefore, I consider the understanding of what an ‘A’ means critical to the substantive ability to understand what kind of work an ‘A’ mark entails for a law student.

One thing that you will hear a lot about is the importance of writing in a specifically ‘legal’ way. In conjunction with the phrase ‘legal writing,’ you will often hear the terms ‘clear and concise.’

Law School Diaries

I am really excited about this one guys! Welcome to my University Diaries!

In this series I want to talk about tricks and tips that I have learned at law school.

Specifically, I want to focus on the following area; ‘learning how to learn at law school.’ This means that I don’t want to speak to the substantive content as much as I want to really engage with some of the tricks and trips that I have found helpful for actually learning how to get better grades.
