ar·bi·trar·y (ahr-bi-trer-ee): subject to individual will or judgment without restriction; contingent solely upon one’s discretion
The most popular and important word to know for law school is “arbitrary.” If you are cold called by a professor and don’t know the answer, just say something is arbitrary and everyone will think you are a genius. The text of the law is arbitrary, the purpose of law is arbitrary, police enforcement of law is arbitrary. It doesn’t matter how you apply the word or even if you use it correctly. You merely have to include it somewhere in your answer.
Remember, law school isn’t about being different or bringing in new ideas. It is about following the pack and regurgitating the same old thing over and over.
