Tomorrow begins Law Camp, the one week orientation session preceding the start of “real” classes. We take our individual and class photos, pledge ourselves to the Honor Code, and are otherwise initiated as 1Ls. We will also meet for the first time in our fourteen Law Offices: the small groups where for the next two years we will practice our writing, speaking, interviewing, negotiating, and other important skills.
I organized a group outing last Friday via our class’s Facebook group. We had a really strong showing, almost 25 folks. It was great to get to know some people before we were all thrown in together at the Welcome Reception this afternoon. Everyone seems really nice, smart, and excited about the coming adventure. It’s going to be a fun time, I think.
