According to the Law School Survey of Student Engagement 2005 Annual Survey Results conducted by the Indiana University Center for Postsecondary Research, the first two years of law school are more demanding compared with the final year. Third-year students neither work as hard as their counterparts nor do they discuss legal issues and ideas outside of class as often as other law students. As many as one quarter of third-year students frequently come to class unprepared. The study surveyed 28,000 JD students at 73 law schools.
Sounds like senioritis to me.
