This seems like an ideal time to tell you some of the things you need to know about law school, because at this point, you’re pretty much in it to the end.
I know this sounds like something your high school guidance counsellor might say, and that’s not an unfair observation. But there’s a reason for this beyond simply spiffing up your resume: most of your classes in law school will focus largely on the theory of law.
And besides, having something to spice up the daily grind of classes is fun.
More importantly to you, marks usually become quite important if you want the easiest route through law school to an eventual career: the second-year summer student position at a medium-to-large firm which results in an articling hireback. Most first-year law students come fresh out of university and don’t have anything interesting on their resumes beyond, maybe, some volunteer work or an odd extracurricular activity. What distinguishes you from other students, all too often, are your marks.
