Now that many students have taken mid-term exams and have begun to receive grades on legal writing assignments, their stress levels are beginning to rise dramatically as they come to the realization that they may not perform as they hoped in law school. Undoubtedly, some are worried at this point whether they will fail completely.
For many, this sort of stress in something new, especially in an academic environment; and they may not handle it in healthy ways. Larry Krieger has created a couple of booklets you may find helpful as you begin to work with students who are having a tough time learning to function in the face of law school's pressure and disappointments.
The booklets are described at http://www.law.fsu.edu/academic_programs/humanizing_lawschool/booklet.html.
