    • DO THE RESEARCH OR YOU AINT PREPARED – Research terms and cases you are not familiar with which have appeared on your textbook assignment – if you have not, you are not prepared
    • PROFESSOR IS NOT INTERESTED IN YOUR OPINION – When answering a question, do not provide a calculated guess or merely your opinion on the issue, but be prepared to relay example cases and opinions of scholars which are authoritative sources. Without the latter, the former is worthless.
    • ATTEND GUEST LECTURES AND SEMINARS YOU HAVE BEEN INVITED TO – be prepared with questions and witty comments + dress smart
