Greetings! And welcome to the Open Book Blog.
As you know by now, we are trying to do something a little different here. We are trying to demystify the law school exam process . . . and law school too.
We want this blog to be a forum for discussion about legal education and law school exams. We won’t be posting daily. We have day jobs, just like you. But we hope to be here a couple of times a week with something informative, or provocative, or fun. We also hope to have some guest bloggers from time to time – professors, lawyers and students alike.
You can help! There’s a contact page on this website that will allow you to get in touch with us. We are hoping you do. Send us questions, offer observations, direct us to good sources. Or simply pass on what is amusing. We will look through what you send, and post some of it for general edification. (We plan to identify you, unless you say otherwise, by your first name, last initial, and school.)
Finally, two or three times a semester we are going to go live with webcasts, for which you can call in or write in to have us discuss what is on your mind. And then we’ll post them here in case you couldn’t participate live.
So, welcome. We are happy to be here, and happy to have you with us.
P.S. If you haven’t already, you might want to follow the schedule outlined in the “How to Use this Book” section of the book by taking a pass at Chapters 1 and 13, as well as the Afterword. If it makes you feel any better (?), this is probably going to be the lightest reading ‘assignment’ you will face in the coming weeks.
