  1. hey man . I really like watching your videos they are very informative. I am in yr12 and currently studying to set my AS level exams. I honestly cant tell whether you are American or not. So AS level is like SAT'S but for the British Curriculum. So I'm taking History , Economics , Sociology and Math. Do you believe these subjects would help me or benefit me in order to do become a law student. In two years I will be finished with 'high school' and applying to good law universities in the UK. I'm freaking the hell out man. oh and by the way I am assuming you are a lawyer if so what kind ?
    P.s I want to become a solicitor because that's where the big bucks come in haha
    thanks for the videos 🙂

  2. Could you do a video exploring the value of extracurricular activities while in law school? I’m thinking that I’d like to be involved with the school’s Student Bar Association as an officer, but a more popular opinion seems to be that law review is the only valuable extracurricular activity for law students.

  3. Honestly, I've been looking how law school will be. I'm so new to it all… It's very daunting to know where to start. You have helped immensely in the way you explain the process. Thank you <3

  4. I understanding that you're talking from experience, and thus mainly referencing the American system, but I want to say that this is really helping me with my English Law Conversion.

    The GDL (English conversion course), is done post-grad, like American law school, but is only 1 year. Its the 9 mandatory modules done in a regular English law degree which are typically spread across 2 years, condensed into one.

    As such, its going to be intense but very interesting.

  5. "Most of your grades will come from issue spotting exams"
    "Issue spotting exams are completely useless for your finals and you should'nt invest time into them."

    Contradicting isn't it?

  6. Thank you for your Channel and videos. My fiancé is in law school and this helps me understand his frustration and where he’s coming from.

  7. Historian here; in graduate history classes you have to learn things like the research methods and historiography. Why they teach this, I don't know. The only thing good to come from that was a practice thesis proposal.

  8. My current Roman history professor is a stickler for relying on the Socratic method and analysis of primary sources. He also doesn't know the definition of tertiary source, so it gets weird and time consuming.
