Transcript *sigh* Here I go again. Masters of law student John Wray makes his way to the library for a full night of studying. Aspects of law were so intense and information-packed that many students would stay up well into the night to assure better grades on their tests, -photo by Kena Alvarado Li A y ...definitely outdated by today's standards. First year law student Patrick Traister looks up an amendment for a paper he has to write for one of his law interpretation classes. Much of the time law students spent on campus was in the library, -photo by Kena Alvarado ■i^^H^H We shall sleep soon... Law students occupy the desks at the O'Quinn Law Library to write papers and study for upcoming tests. The library was filled with books and other information that helped students research in-depth on whatever law subject they liked, -photo by Kena Alvarado Studying Law Students at the School of Law study to obtain their degrees in a top-notch academic setting I was up all night studying for that test... Students discuss grades they obtained on their last tests. It was important for law students to retain the information that they learned in their classes, -photo by Kena Alvarado Studying and being up all night was not new to law students at the University of Houston. The library always had a sea of students coming in and out, trying to keep up with their classes. Most of the work that the students had was geared toward finals and term papers for their chosen courses. Most of what they had to do before finals included going to class and studying while out of class to review what they learned during their lectures. Students found that cramming only helped them hold the information they needed to last them a few short hours, instead of a lifetime. If they wanted to retain the information, they had to expose themselves to the information constantly. Professors taught the classes with a more direct competitive edge than many colleges on campus. Instead of just lecturing, the instructor tried to involve students in the lecture by asking opinions and questions on what they learned or what they thought. Answering the questions intuitively and intellectually was essential to keeping up with the competition between students in the school. "A lot of professors will make you jump through hoops in class and you don't want to look like a fool in front of the next guy since it's very competitive. You have to be good at what you do and stay on top of the materials that you are given so that you can answer the tough questions," said masters of law student John Wray. One more interesting aspect of law was that every major on campus touched on the many facets of how the law affects their majors. Businesses always needed law interpretation to make sure they didn't break laws. Psychology proved to be a good undergraduate degree so that lawyers could understand people. "Everything in life encompass law. It plays a major role in everybody's life," said second year law student Claudia Henry. -Michelle Lehmann keadennics College of La <(97>
