Orientation, classes, and free law firm paraphernalia
First day was quite overwhelming, both in the sheer amount of information poured on us and in the mound of physical objects we're supposed to take home. Information came in the form of speeches, mini-lectures, and advice from upper-year students, and of course, the 20 lb. box of case papers for our courses. The physical objects I mentioned were useful and thoughtful gifts from various law firms - though somewhat redundant (we got about four water bottles or mugs) - but I guess they couldn't really coordinate their donations.
