Theschool of law has taught me numerous things pertaining the law andalso life, in general. As a student the law school, there is avariety of skills that an individual ought to possess to be anexcellent lawyer. For instance, a lawyer interacts with people andthe society in general in establishing facts about different cases.As such, one should learn various skills that will enable them toface the world with confident. The essay aims at establishing some ofthe lessons learned during the first trimester of law school.
Oneof the most important lessons I learned is that people should be ableto control their stress and emotions when dealing with people. As alaw student, I believe that stress can have an adverse impact notonly on the profession but also social and health aspects. I managedto understand that stress management is an important aspect of oursocial and health well-being. It is, therefore, to find means throughwhich we can overcome stress to ensure we boost out moods, bolsterimmune functions, and maintain an overall body health. Psychologistsstipulate that stress can make people lose focus, cause frustrations,anger, and depression among other physical, emotional, andphysiological effects. I also learned that I could manage stressthrough meditation, which is the best practice and more efficient.Meditation helps to get rid of tension, distractions and creates aserene and more relaxed environment where innate healing can emanate.
Additionally,I managed to understand that it is better to start on things whenthere is adequate time, instead of waiting until the last minute. Inmy class, I made various observations of how people study andundertake their assignments. For instance, there are those who startoff their assignments immediately and others who wait until it’salmost due for them to start. There are always repercussions ofstarting assignments at the last minute. For instance, most studentsin my class who waited until the last minute to finish assignmentsended up copying from the rest of the student, who had alreadyfinished. I learned that doing assignments early and avoiding rushprovides students with ample time to concentrate on other studies andprevent anxiety.
Finally,I managed to learn that it is always important to seek for assistancewhen unsure about something. For instance, when a student fails toask questions on a particularly controversial issue, then they getstuck in a Pandora box. I have learned that asking questions helps astudent build more knowledge and get a deeper meaning and insightabout a particular topic. Therefore, students who ask questions inclass gain a better understanding and build their confidence level.On the other hand, failure to ask questions is deemed a cowardicebehavior that does not lead to anything good but failure.
Therefore,the law school had a lot to offer through which I will be a betterperson and avoid some of the vices mentioned. As a law student, Iought to have confidence, avoid stress and emotions, and always carryout my activities early to provide sufficient time to revise and makenecessary amends. As such, one should be able to management timeappropriately by prioritizing on the essential items. Therefore,seeking assistance, managing stress, and time management are the mostcrucial elements that ensure efficiency in learning, not only to alaw student but all students.
