New Documentary About 1L Life
The Trials of Law School is a new documentary film about 1L life and times. From the synopsis:
[T]he film captures both the stress and emotion, both inside the classroom and out, as [eight students] try to juggle family and relationships with school commitments. These students, including a single mother looking for a fresh start, a husband and father of four, and a military wife trying to raise six children, compete with competitive and highly successful peers for grades and jobs that will determine their future.
Their journey is contrasted with insights from over 25 acclaimed law professors and legal scholars from around the country.
The DVD costs $24.95 and is available from the film's website. Two trailers, including one featuring law profs who participated in the documentary, are provided below, and check out Mitchell Rubinstein's review on Adjunct Law Prof Blog. [JH]

The most inspirational person in my law school class was the mother of three wee ones who lived an hour away and NEVER missed a class.
