Do you use ProQuest or JSTOR or anything like that?

JSTOR is the shiznat! w00t!

Nope

Not much research beyond the FASB, SAS, SFAS, and interpretations of those standards in accounting.

:( Business Majors....

So the question should be, should you be going to law school if you don't find reading them interesting and entertaining?

You are a SICK SICK man.

You will learn to hate Lexis and Westlaw in a matter of time...

especially when you work at a firm and realize they are charging astronomical fees...so when you mistype a search and you go back and do it again, the client's not going to be too thrilled when they get the bill.

I am actually going to work for a year or so before law school. I am not reading them to get ahead, just find them interesting to read.

So the question should be, should you be going to law school if you don't find reading them interesting and entertaining?

Hopefully these are law review articles on things like conlaw, crim law, IP, or some other interesting field and not admiralty, tax law, et cetera.  I sometimes find law review articles interesting, but most are boring, its finding an area you are interested in, if you are enjoying random law review articles you are a lot more intellectual inclined than me.

He was referring to me.

No need to take offense, he's just a troll.

Oh, don't get pissy. You attempted to insult me, not the other way around. Besides, do you really want to compare productivity?

No need for a pissing contest. We are all here for the same reason.
