Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Unless you plan on becoming a law professor, half of the classes you take in law school are a complete waste of time. This is especially true with the law school electives that you take to fill out your 3L schedule with the goal of boosting your GPA.
Still, every law school is different. Classes that may be a complete waste of time at one school, like those mentioned in a recent Wall Street Journal piece and discussed on the TaxProf Blog, may be beneficial at another school. And while one course may go over the head of one student, another student may totally get.
So here is this blogger's personal list of five law school classes that, in hindsight, proved to be an utter waste of time:
As a believer in education for its own sake, almost all law school classes do provide some benefit. However, after you graduate, you'll soon realize that law school should have been more like vocational school as you may have little to no idea on how to draft a pleading, how to do statutory research, or how to deal with clients.
Remember, you're paying for every credit you take in law school, and time really is money. It's better to choose classes you'll actually benefit from, instead of those that may sound fun but ultimately end up wasting your time.
