In this issue, the Stetson Law Review revisits a 1983 publica-
tion titled Maximizing the Law School Experience, 12 STETSON L.
REV. 551, which was edited by Professors Michael I. Swygert and
Robert Batey. The original issue contained essays intended to pro-
vide entering law students with the knowledge and confidence to
grasp the many opportunities that a legal education yields. Essays
included How Not to Write Answers to Law Examinations, An Ex-
planation of Clinical Education, and Life After Law School: The
Placement Search. With the passage of time, however, the law
school experience and the practice of law have changed. Thus, this
publication is an update to the 1983 issue and addresses some con-
temporary topics.
To effectuate this symposium, the Stetson Law Review updated
some of the original essays and solicited new works. Some of the
essays not updated, including Putting Law School Grades in Per-
spective, by Professor Michael I. Swygert; Seminars and Indepen-
dent Research: In-Depth Learning, by Professor Robert Dale Bickel;
A Critique of the Litigation Emphasis of Legal Education, by
Professor Jon W. Bruce; and The Role of Social Sciences in the
Study of Law, by Professor Michael Finch, have withstood the test
of time, and we encourage you to review them. New topics in this
issue include young lawyers' involvement in the legal profession, a
global perspective of the law school experience, and the importance
of ethics and morality in today's legal world. We also included
essays by current and former law students who provide advice and
share their experiences.
