    I am a second year law student at

    Panthéon-Assas in Paris. Law is the one quintessential human pursuit where reason is designed to prevail. Law is a universal pursuit. The universe was designed by laws and established by words.

    Just started second year

    and I am so stressed. They seem to have put all of my deadlines in November too, plus we have a huge group task that's about to begin. I don't mind group tasks, but my class are extremely lazy. It's difficult to pick people who have a small amount of motivation.
