There's a news story out today questioning the value of the third and final year of law school. "At many top law schools, the third year is famously relaxed, a halcyon interlude between rigorous introductory courses and the long hours that await graduates at law firm jobs. There is research and volunteer work, but also a lot of bar-hopping and little studying: 15 hours per week, according to one survey at 11 law schools, compared to 33 hours for first-year students." I promise you that every lawyer that went to Baylor pulls his hair out over that statement. At Baylor, the third year involves the "practice court" class, which may have have been the most difficult academic year of my life. Just a rant this morning.
