Litigation because I want to do something new on every case and I like confrontation.

or

Construction law because I have a civil engineering background.

or

Health law because it is a growth industry.

or

Government because I like the 8-5.

In that order of preference?

F*ck you,
and what part of STAY AWAY FROM ME YOU CREEPY INTERNET GUY do you not understand? ?
I AM NOT JOKING.


I think you are pathetic.  You try too hard. You strut for strangers and are REEEEAALLLY into porn.  You are creepy.  I don't care if you disagree and I don't care who you have read.  I am not interested.  In case you haven't noticed NO ONE IS.  Now go away.

Lot of anger there.  You really need to calm down and take yourself less seriously.  So far, most people have laughed at or enjoyed the pictures.  Most of the conversations here have been enjoyable, sometimes contentious, but for the most part, civil.  Some complain, sure, but everyone's entitled to an opinion.  I think you're the only poster on this site who has developed a pathological hatred for me.  It reflects much more on you than me, despite all the obvious, earnest projection in this post.

And STOP trying to personally IM me.

And now we have a persecution complex.  I'm not IMing you; I really don't care that much about you.

Could you possibly try any harder?

I just saw you criticize someone on another thread as unintelligent because of their writing "skills"... On a message board?? 

Most people are not concerned about this.

Wonderfully out of context.  The person in question called someone else a retard and implied claims to superior intelligence.  I merely noted that their facility with the language didn't reflect that at all, a perfectly valid criticism.

However this only reinforces my opinion that YOU are trying to impress people on here by spouting off about what you think qualifies as intellectualism. 

You have attempted to:
 correct spelling mistakes, make strained literary references, criticize "writing skills", give vocabulary lessons, literally claim to "educate" on multiple occasions, proclaimed yourself a connoisseur, directly quoted Oscar Wilde, and even suggested readings! .... ALL IN THE LAST 24 HOURS!!

I haven't attempted any of those.  I've actually done them, although I think "strained" is a tad silly; most people familiar with aestheticism would recognize Pater's quote.

The fact that any of this gives you a conniption fit is pitiful and yet also amusing at the same time.  You need a thicker skin.

YOU HAVE A SERIOUS PROBLEM. 
YOU LONG FOR INTELLECTUAL VALIDATION.

You are very creepy. 
Do not tell me how to love my woman.
She is not on a magazine page.
You wouldn't know the first thing about something like that.
Go love your porn collection you are so proud of.

I certainly wouldn't seek validation of any sort (let alone intellectual) from you.

Ah, possessiveness rears its pretty little head.  I find it ridiculous when men talk about "my woman" as if they had any hand in the creation of women.  This, of course, from the great opponent of objectification. ::)

Anyway, stay the f*ck away from me, you give me the creeps.
Shouldn't you be studying or "hooking up with an insatiable sexpot" right now?

Ah, finally a topical point.  I'm having a hand at cards with some friends, wasting time on LSD, listening to symphony by Rachmaninov, and taping outlines to the ceiling.  Oh, and since you asked:

Nice picture but time to be serious again lol. Take a look at Martindale.com. NYLS grads seem to be well represented.

Yes, back to serious. ;)

Sure you can find NYLS grads on Martindale, but take a look at their bar passage numbers--64.3%, which is below the average for New York.  That means you have a good third of the class that's not even eligible to practice law (at least not in New York).  Then consider that average salary is mostly self-reported.  With these two factors in mind, you get a much less rosy picture.  Of course, like any third tier student, if you claw your way into the top 10% of the class, you definitely will have prospects.  But that's a big if.

the value comes in that to site a case that has been overturned is suicide, it will lose you the case at best and land you in jail at worst.  If you look in law library books you will see in the back they have updates.  The online services keep the cases up to date and give quick signals to people if the case is up to date.  They also point out the most relevant lines of text, which you can not site those (you will learn they are summarys), they still lead you to the relevent text, which saves me hours every day.

Land you in jail?  That seems like an exaggeration.  The only way I could see something like that happening is contempt of court, but it seems like no judge would have an attorney jailed for that kind of error; monetary sanctions as a threat are more than a sufficient deterrent, it seems.

If intentional, I think it would amount to contempt.

Yeah, but my point is that usually contempt gets you a fine, not jail time.  Being jailed for contempt often requires really egregious and inappropriate conduct; screwing up and forgetting to Shepardize a case doesn't pass the threshold, although it is probably sanctionable under Rule 11 or equivalent state rules. 

Oh no, I agree with you that in most cases, the punishment would probably amount to a fine.  However, I think sdlaw was allow for conceivable instances where the conduct would be egregious.  For example, someone could cite the numerous body of statutes that regulated slavery or even the Alabama state constitution which technically still requires segregation (of course, the provision is unenforceable).  In any case, a judge could correctly surmise in such an instance that no reasonable attorney could have made the error unintentionally; a fine could be imposed, but I'm sure many judges would also jail the attorney for contempt.

Quote
I would describe the life philosophy as hedonistic, but it might give the wrong impression to those who don't know Greek.

This is not an allusion to anything.  It is an ordinary usage of an English word, in plain context.

Quote
I didn't care to educate you about Greece; you completely missed the allusion to Walter Pater--strikes me as frustration more than anything else.

You didn't care to educate me, you sh*thead?  You didn't MAKE an allusion.  You are trying so hard-- again, transparently.   Look everyone, he made an allusion to a Victorian English dead guy!   Oooooohhhh AAAhhhhhh!!!! (applause) --Only problem is, you didn't.  You only wish you did because you think it would have made you look pretty intelligent.  You didn't allude to Pater any more than you alluded to Plato  You simply used a common English word correctly (Yes, most people here are aware of its Greek origin, dumbass),  Congratulations.

You are surprisingly dense.  Pater's quote was: "I wish they would not call me a hedonist.  It gives such a wrong impression to those who do not know Greek."  If you look at my quote, you'll see that it's a rough paraphrase of his own statement.  I chose this particular "Victorian English dead guy" (a choice redundancy, I might add; very few Victorians are anything other than English or dead) because he was the primary spokesperson of the aesthetic movement, the period that I think best reflects my own views on art.  Perhaps you studied the pre-Raphaelites in undergraduate and only forgot.  Or perhaps while you were yawning and jabbering about fakery--if you've read anything by Wilde, another favorite of mine, you would probably understand why I find that particular accusation so deliciously funny--you missed out the study of the important cultural movements of the past.

Yawn.

Fake.

Transparent.

I can definitely see why you are a LoverOfWomen instead of a LoverOfAWoman.  You are a child.  Go back to your porn sites and don't ever try to "educate" anyone again.  People whose favorite thing in life is admittedly girls with fake titties don't get to "educate" other adults.

Oh, the "transparent" charge stings.

I'm not a LoverOfAWoman because I find such declarations obscene.  "It is most dangerous nowadays for a husband to pay any attention to his wife in public.  It always makes people think that the beats her when they're alone."  (I'll save you the trouble; the quote is from Oscar Wilde). 

Again, it's amusing to find someone so disconcerted by fakery, as if the natural was ever desirable.  Do read "The Decay of Lying" sometime when you have the chance.  I could explain it to you, but then again, I wouldn't presume to educate you.  I've never had it in me to take up hopeless chores.

Current Law Students / Re: Lexis or WestLaw?
« on: March 30, 2006, 03:00:14 PM »
In school I used westlaw, but my firm almost exclusively uses lexis, it is important to know both because at many firms they only pay for one service. Bigger firms like mine have contracts with both so I could use either but smaller firms dont have the capital to contract with both companies so the managing partner will choose their favorite and you are stuck with their decision.

Ah, I hadn't thought of that.  The firm I clerked for my 1L summer used both and I hadn't realized that some firms might use only one.

The solution is for the ABA to stop approving so many schools.  Seriously, T3 and T4 schools are essentially worthless to the profession.  I would say even most schools outside of the T6 probably are. 

In the meantime, depressed law students will just have to get by on this:



what school do you go to loverofwomen?  honestly i am tired of your idiotic spam posts on this website and i wish you would be removed for advertising porn on a discussion board.  how in the hell do you expect a legal system to survive with 6 law schools providing lawyers?

I'm not "advertising" porn; the link just failed.  There was a picture of a beautiful woman earlier.  I apologize that there is no longer.  Besides, it was topical--I pointed a means depressed law students could use to get by.

I said most schools outside of the T6 are worthless.  The leaders in the profession are effectively these six schools.  The other eight of the T14 are OK, but could use a boost in their standards.

Many graduates of T3/4 and even some T1/2 schools are unable to find work without graduating above a certain decile level.  A lot aren't able to even pass the bar.  This is in contrast to medicine, where even an average student at an unknown (but accredited) school can find good work.

The ABA should stop approving so many schools, as I said earlier, but it should also crack down on those which refuse to raise their standards.  Honestly, if your school's bar passage rate is below, say, 90%, the school isn't doing it's job (recruiting and training effective lawyers) and should be denied ABA accreditation.

Exuse me jerk off?  Actually I work for one of the three largest agencies in terms of assets.  No need to get nasty as#hole.

Also, if your DOJ position requires a top secret clearance you will have people getting interviewed that you lived by.  Any top secret clearance goes through a single scope background investigation.  However, you are correct, without SCI there will be no poly.

Quit acting like you know what you are talking about.  I have actually been through a clearance process, hold clearance, and know what I am talking about jerk off.

Oh, and top tier and Yale are two totally different categories.  For not being literal, you sure said it like it was gospel. 

This is some funny pwnage.  I especially liked the last two lines.

silvercannonca, for someone so obsessed with intelligence (almost every sentence contains some snide comment about stupidity), your writing skills are amazingly crappy.
