A Day in the Life of a 1L

On a Wednesday in April 2008, during the second semester of his first year of law school, Jesse Nix decided to capture “a normal” day of his life as a student at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law.  “I set my computer to take a picture every 30 seconds . . . .”

Nix chose Wednesday because it was his busiest day of the week.  He began filming on his car ride to campus at 7:45 a.m. and stopped filming at 3:00 p.m.  “I didn’t want to film me studying for hours and hours, so I decided to stop it on my way back home.”

Nix’s resulting “video representation” is now the popular YouTube video “A Day in the Life of a Law Student.
