52. Law School Forums Lie What's Law Got To Do With It?

    • Education

Richard and Adam are joined by Jeremy Nason (Zooming in from New Brunswick). Adam comes up with a Criminal Code provision dealing with "creep capturers." No one knows if he's making stuff up. Jeremy names a TV show, How to Get Away with Murder and a movie,  A Time to Kill. Adam recommends Goliath. Not sure why but then Richard then jumps on the bandwagon and recommends All Rise, which is not well-received.
 
Jeremy describes how his law school experience was impossible to prepare for as nothing he read or heard was accurate: law school forums lie. The ways of learning before law school, and the way you think before law school were different; classmates were different but they all have the same goal. His highlight, unexpectedly, was the support systems that law schools have. He had no idea that everyone would care! Richard wonders whether he should read the law school forums. Adam thinks that this podcast takes the place of any forum.
 
Asked to find some problem with law school, Jeremy critiques the false importance of some aspects. Richard thinks that’s a teaching technique. Adam felt same way, as law school was initially a life or death struggle, but then realized that one thing you have to learn is to get comfortable with those he calls catastrophizers (Richard should have commented that there's no such word). Adam, upon further reflection, thinks students need to go through the catastrophe thinking, but develop an immunity to it eventually.
 
Jeremy wonders if COVID was divine intervention as it definitely helped put things in perspective. In terms of the coming year, Jeremy feels remote learning may not be ideal, but there are ways to make it work. In answer to Adam's last question as to what unorthodox study habits he has, Jeremy discusses how he would quiz himself or talk to concepts through while walking around as it helped focus his mind.  A treadmill in every library would allow for more of this.
