A place where students fail to recognize that law is not an exact science, and that the law is, essentially, what a jury or a powerful judge says it is. It is not uncommon for the inmates, that is to say, one's classmates, to constantly overanalyze the analyses of analyses. Moreover, regardless of a students' understanding of the law, they will fail to impress on exams, unless they use certain key terms which are only used by lawyers. These terms include: moreover, in sum, unconscionable, keen, cogent, nugget, comity, proportionality, substantial, reasonableness, as it were, precedent, stare decisis, sua sponte, de novo, and various other Latin phrases, the mispronunciation of which most likely has Marcus Aurelius turning in his grave.
I decided to go to law school because I thought it would be a smart move. Then I realized that common law was insanity, and that maybe I should have just moved to France or Sweden with my tuition money. Too late! Now I've made my pact with the Devil.
