Are you a fan of staying up all night just to read on something? If not, then you’ll probably never survive law school. This claim is not an exaggeration. I was the type of student who dreaded having to read something for a lesson and when I got to law school, the habit of not reading a lot blew up right in my face. In my first year, I digested 100 cases from different subjects and the cases were roughly 50 pages and up. This was the equivalent of reading a lot of novels in a month. I could barely read one novel and finish it in a week.
If that’s not the worst, you still end up justifying your cases in front of your teachers who’re lawyers and judges. They will make it a point to break you right then and there, so you need to have the stomach to have your ideas busted. Simply put, law school is about reading and talking. More reading and more talking will occur as you progress.
If you want to enter law school, you need to practice the habit of reading a lot more. Try reading one novel a month then gradually increase your speed.
