In the following two posts you will hear from two different first semester law students about their experience in law school. Both are unique perspectives due to their differing backgrounds. The first article will be from Arie, a 1L who came to Alexander Blewett III School of Law at the University Of Montana, two years after graduating from her undergraduate school. The following week you will hear from Jennifer, a 1L whose path to law school has meandered a little more.
Our goal in presenting these articles back to back is to highlight the shared experience of a first semester law students. We hope that you also notice the different struggles both students encountered, and how they are framed by the writer.
