I started reading Scott Turow's "One L", finally! First thought: nothing ever, ever changes in law school. Second thought: Harvard Law School has 15 buildings. 15! Or at least they did in nineteen seventy whatever. We only got one! Third thought: I never thought of non-competitiveness as some kind of egalitarian conceit that everybody would start out with before discarding the facade and ripping each other to shreds. I never realized that people would think that the sin of the gunner is to be overtly competitive when other people are hiding it. Fourth thought: I'm really glad that I wasn't in a study group. I think what law students need more than anything is party groups, not study groups! Actually, I don't really know if people were in study groups. I'm not really aware of any that were stable throughout the year. I don't know how I would know if there were, but there you go. Fifth thought: If I ever get to be a law professor, I promise that I will do at least some things different from tradition. Different, but good.
