The word succeed has its roots in ancient words meaning “to go after” or “to go toward.” Yet too often success is thought of as something that happens to a person. In fact, it is a very active undertaking. Similarly, when law school is described to new students, it is often presented as something that will happen to them, and something that, at best, should be endured and survived.

Law students, however, should reject that very passive view. The best advice I can offer you is this: Be an active participant in your education.
