The Bloggers' Guide to Law School

The blogosphere never suffers for a shortage of advice. Depending on the source, it may or may not be worth what we pay for it. But when a law professor offers advice to incoming first-year law students, said students would be well advised to pay heed.

So the law school class of 2009 owes a debt of gratitude to Paul L. Caron of TaxProf Blog, who has scoured the blogosphere for the sage counsel of law professors and assembled the links in his post, Advice for the Incoming Law School Class of 2009. He has uncovered, for example, UC Hastings professor Vikram David Amar's Ten Key Principles that Will Help You Succeed and George Washington professor Orin Kerr's Advice for Entering Law Students.

As if that were not enough, Caron has gone a step further towards orienting these lawyer hopefuls, also collecting the advice of actual 1L survivors. There is Heidi Bond's Advice to law-students-to-be about stuff and famous former law student Jeremy Blachman's A Big Law School Advice Post.

With the service Caron has provided law students through this post, they might just overlook what most any law-school survivor will tell you: Taking tax is no fun at all!
