As others have said , this is par for the course.
You've got a lot on your plate:
1. new school
2. new program
3. maybe learning in your second language ( which was the case for me)
4. not knowing that many people.
everyone compares , but as others have said, its all in your head. there are only a select few law students who hit the ground running and they're usually at the top of the class. the rest of need to evaluate our success incrementally against where we were yesterday so to speak.
A few tips that helped me in first year:
1. If your law school allows it , record all of your profs so you can return to lectures many times over. Also seek out past notes if possible.
2. Law school essentially wants you to be a researcher. you'll need to study the articles in the code on your own time and use online tools like Caij. Caij has database where you can access doctrine on just about any area of the law, as well as a legal dictionary. you can also check out west law and lexisadvance quicklaw.
3. teachers are often obscure which is why #2 is important. Dont wait for professors to clarify every little thing or else you'll fall behind and stress even worse.
4. study like the mid term is next week. by that i mean , be proactive , ask questions , be open to reworking concepts 100* over .
5. the code is a tool and many of the articles are connected. always try to make sense of it by thinking about how they'd apply in a given scenario. that'll give you a basis to know what you don't know so to speak.
6. when reading a case, remember that the facts aren't as important as the rule. You won't know what this means yet, but common law courses force you to understand the reasoning of the judge whereas civil law cases tend to illustrate a rule led to an article in the code. regardless, do not get bogged down reading the complex facts and past rulings etc, focus on reading the judges opinion and trying to relate it back to the article in the code. also , you can look up cases relating to an article your struggling with by going onto Canlii and looking up the article itself. lastly , you can even find case summaries on the websites i mentioned ( example , canlii connects).
7. for most questions , the collection de droit is your friend . check it out on caij.
