Many people wonder, “Is it worth studying law?” The answer depends entirely on the student’s goals and interests. Some students spend their whole lives buried in a law book, others find an aspect that has some human interest or political angle. But, regardless of whether one is interested in a legal career or not, it is important to keep in mind that the university experience is a personal one. As a student, it is important to make the most of the time you spend there by getting involved in society and making friends, or simply avoiding quiet nights at home.
One way to get inspired is to surround yourself with talented legal experts. Many Yale law professors are close friends and close acquaintances, and the presence of those people can help students become better lawyers. While access to lecture slides can be useful, they cannot influence a person’s attitude. Seeing someone who is already successful and surrounded by other people who have succeeded can make the difference between success and failure. Even if they have not been successful, the opportunity to learn from their experiences will be invaluable to their future success.
