The goal of orientation is to give you an opportunity to get to know your fellow students and to get you ready for the start of law school classes. With that latter goal in mind, we are planning a class simulation that will require you to do some preparatory reading. Many first-year law students have had no experience in reading cases. Even those of you who have read a few cases for undergraduate courses are likely unprepared for the volume of cases you will be expected to read.
Please read these articles before tackling the case:
You will participate in a class simulation with the goal of giving you a sense of what a law school class feels like. The professors leading these sessions have prepared the cases below for you to read that will serve as the focus of discussion. Please note, while you will participate in the simulation with your small section, the class simulation will not be taught by your small section professor. Again, you MUST read the case below prior to the class simulation.
