Those are good suggestions for anyone, lawprof or otherwise. I'd add two more:

- Get to know the teaching assistant (TA) for the course(s) you're taking, and "use" them. Most ICPSR TAs are advanced Ph.D. students; all are "experts" in the field(s) covered by the course. Most important, their primary job is to be there for the students in the course. They are a fantastic resource.

- Take advantage of the availability of the instructor(s) as well. Meet with them outside of class, and feel free (in fact, encouraged) to talk about your own research with them. As someone who's taught there for a half-dozen years or so, I can attest that my interaction with the students in my course is one of the most rewarding things about the Program.
