Treating Law School Like a Job

    Most folks who do well in law school treat it like a job.  They set regular hours, are highly organized, and do the work.  Treating law school like a job means accepting the fact that learning the law is very time consuming and that certain tasks must be accomplished.  But it's not enough to plan and organize on a daily basis; you also need to know what your understanding of the subject should be at certain chronological junctures.
    If you make yourself do the work when your schedule says it should be done, then you can relax and enjoy breaks such as spring break.  If you're unorganized and behind on the subjects, then the breaks will be the free time you need to work hard in order to get caught up.  Law is fraught with nuances that can't be learned in a day.
