A quick definition of Plain-language law:

Plain-language law: This is a type of law that says companies have to write their contracts in a way that regular people can understand. Contracts are things like rental agreements, loans, and insurance policies. This law helps people know what they're agreeing to when they sign a contract.

A more thorough explanation:

Plain-language law is a type of law that requires companies to write their contracts in simple and easy-to-understand language. This means that contracts like residential leases, loan agreements, software licenses, and insurance contracts should be written in a way that regular people can understand.

  • A residential lease is an example of a contract that should be written in plain language. This is because people who rent apartments or houses need to understand the terms of their lease so they know what they are agreeing to.
  • A loan agreement is another example of a contract that should be written in plain language. People who borrow money need to understand the terms of their loan so they know how much they will have to pay back and when.
  • Software licenses are also contracts that should be written in plain language. People who use software need to understand the terms of the license so they know what they can and cannot do with the software.
  • Insurance contracts are another example of contracts that should be written in plain language. People who buy insurance need to understand what is covered and what is not covered so they can make informed decisions about their coverage.

These examples illustrate the importance of plain-language law. By requiring companies to write their contracts in simple and easy-to-understand language, people can make informed decisions about the products and services they are buying.

@GreenJumbledScorpion: If that's right, if one can RA remotely, then that makes more sense. But I have another question about this. For many students, I think, their summer employment in 1L is supposed to help them pay for rent over the summer for wherever they have happened to live for the nine months of the academic year. If one has to move halfway across the country for a judicial internship (or other summer employment opportunity), one would presumably need a place to live there. I'm not sure how the summer employment would be able to cover both an apartment or whatever for three-ish months halfway across the country as well as the one you've signed a lease on and have lived in for the entire academic year.
But is that what people do. They just save as much as possible and use whatever they make over the summer to help cover a place wherever they're working as well as their original place?
I suppose they could sublease their original place. That might actually be a good idea.

best site/program to use?
i mostly used khan academy and lawhub. i also did hire a tutor once i started scoring in the 170s because i thought it would be helpful for learning more test-taking techniques but it actually wasn't super helpful for me aside from having someone in my corner who could cheer me on and root for me and stuff
my general advice for those looking for a site/program is to try to get a good understanding of your strong/weak points before signing onto a program, and that a good way to do that is to blind review any practice/diagnostic test you've taken/plan on taking
