About studying at low school

After a three-month blank after retiring from my previous job, I returned to my life as a full-time student for the first time in a long time. I was surprised at the gap in my new life, but anyway, I started a new life.

I entered the course for students who did not study law in their undergraduate, but it seems that most of the students are from the Faculty of Law. It seems that there have been a number of changes in the system revisions in the 20 years since the law school system started in Japan, and the current trend is probably that students are trying to become lawyers in the shortest possible time. While studying for the so-called preliminary exam from the Faculty of Law, it seems that they are aiming for the course for students who studied law in their undergraduate.

I have quite a different background and I switched to the goal of aiming for promotion first, and I’m already full of preparations and reviews for each subject. Although I may not be in a position to say the following thing, the law school seems to try to make their students pass the bar exam within two or three years.

First of all, it is said that preparation and review should be done firmly, and then “self-study” is a major premise. I would like to study subjects which are new for me as soon as possible.

I am not from a faculty of law and do not have any knowledge about the basic books of each subject, so it was one of the good things that made me happy to be in law school to be able to teach me such things properly.

In addition, the so-called preliminary exam seems to be a fairly difficult exam (I get the illusion that it is not so if I just listen to the story of the prep school, but in reality, I got the impression that it is a narrow gate).

In my case, on the other hand, I continue to work as a patent attorney and it makes my choice tough, but for many years I wanted to study general law exactly, so I am very happy to be entered in a law school.
