“Get ready to embark on a wild ride unlike anything you’ve ever experienced, packed with thrills, chills, and probably a few spills. Being a 1L will challenge you like you’ve never been challenged….. The first year of law school will be one of the hardest years of your life. Law school will profoundly alter the way you think, and view and interact with the world around you. Your 1L experience will change who you are, whether you want it to or not.” Andrew McClurg, 1L of a Ride, A Well-Traveled Professor's Roadmap to Success in the First Year of Law School
My favorite week of the academic year is Orientation Week. For the 7th year, I had the great pleasure and privilege of welcoming our first year class. They are talented, energetic, excited, curious, and yes, nervous - but that’s to be expected.
