Third-Year Slide

The legalists who read this blog (the few, the proud, the law students) might enjoy this article.

At many top law schools, the third year is famously relaxed, a halcyon interlude between rigorous introductory courses and the long hours that await graduates at law firm jobs. There is research and volunteer work, but also a lot of bar-hopping and little studying: 15 hours per week, according to one survey at 11 law schools, compared to 33 hours for first-year students.

I'll have to pass this along to my brother (who will be starting at Virginia Law in the fall).
