Starting legal studies is an exciting time. However, the student might also feel a bit apprehensive about commencing a new and challenging programme of study, joining a new institution, approaching new ways of working, facing new expectations, and meeting new people. Whether they are moving away from home for the first time, changing degree courses or changing their career, some nerves and concerns are completely natural. This chapter looks at both the transition to university and an introduction to the law school itself. It explores some of the different challenges that may be faced and provides strategies to meet those challenges. It also explains a bit more about the law school and the early days to help the student to settle in as quickly as possible.
