  1. Such a helpful video! I had my notepad out for notes, haha.

    I was wondering what supplements you would recommend for property law and torts law the first year? I know you recommended Barbri videos for constitutional law and civil pro, so I’ll definitely check those out!

  2. I’m starting law school in the fall and was honestly really doubting if it is the right choice and wondering what I got myself into. This made me feel so much better!

  3. Last question, for finals does your professor always expect you to argue both sides and then ultimately choose one that you believe is “best”? I’m curious how arguments are written for finals

  4. Side note, i know your first day of LS was different than the norm being it was remote but it would be interesting to see a vid on “what to do night before first day of LS/ first day of LS vlog as a 2L” ( i believe you mentioned you’re going to be in person ) 🙂

  5. I'm starting law school very soon! My school has already given out cases to read for orientation… not sure how normal that is but it's happening lol

  6. Great video as usual 😛
    I'm excited to discover what Civil Procedure looks like, I haven't had that class yet and I'm only going to get it in my Winter semester so in January 2022. I don't know if I'll like it though. I'm the kind of person who likes more theoretical classes and more philosophy-ish types of classes/cases where things aren't black and white and where people argue a lot haha I haven't had Contracts yet either but I'm dreading this class and I just know I won't like it… :-/ Con Law is definitely my favourite so far. I pretty much see it as a mix of History and Political Science which were what I was majoring in before majoring in Literature. Getting to know the history of the country, the different Acts that formed the different provinces and why and when and how… More political questions like linguistics rights, the right to vote, provinces wanting to quit the country and be independant, amendements, etc. Fun stuff 🙂 Even just the "boring" stuff about the government and legislative and executive powers, etc. is not that bad. But again, as someone who's into politics and used to study politics, it's just a good reminder. The Canadian Constitution is a bit hard to understand as it is all over the place, but I like a good challenge haha If anyone is curious and wants a good headache, here you can read about it :
    Here's the Canada Act of 1982 :
    Or for an online version :
    Here's the Constitutional Acts from 1867 to 1982 :

    Have some fun guys! xD
    I'm off to work on my Political Science paper now… (We have to argue which one, between Boris Johnson in the UK and Joe Biden in the USA, would be able to pass a bill more easily in their respective country by comparing both political systems and how the legislature works in the Congress and in the Parliament. Fun stuff.
