Law School Discussion

MP's Thread, or how to get paid $75K to sit around: also known as UChicago 2010

(And oh man, E-Pos and Ben-Shahar for contracts?)

incoming 1L here - anyone want to elaborate on how bad this is?  survival tips?

They exaggerate. You might like it. Lots of people do.

It's more the ideological one-two punch that Hipcat was speaking of, I'm guessing. It's a heavily law&econ combo, and Ks is weird enough as is. I think it's great that that Omri is first quarter. It's better for the 1Ls to have a non-Socratic type early, before they all learn to shut up and speak only when spoken to. My only survival tip for Omri is to read and try to understand the Restatement and UCC provisions when they're assigned.


L&E - better to have two L&E heavy profs than one IMO. You've got to learn the stuff if you're going to do well at this school so you might as well get indoctrinated early on.

I suppose I agree, but it's easier to learn common law contracts doctrines when the professor isn't routinely disparaging them.

I think Omri and Posner are teaching separate sections. You'll have Omri or Posner, not both. Which means there's a decent chance that half the 1Ls are going to get an Omri/Bernstein combo.  :o

How's OCI going guys?

When the hell is our schedule coming out? Pontus said early to mid-August and I would say the 18th of August is decidedly nearing the END of August.

OCI is going good. I follow college football recruiting semi-closely, and it amuses me how similar the processes are.

At least the book list is out, so we have an idea, but I agree, the lack of schedule is kind of annoying this late in the summer.

Yeah, if the plan is to delay the course schedule until after OCI, that's misguided. Gives you something to talk about in interviews. OCI seems OK thus far. Reverse peepholes are funny.

Okay for me, too.  Not easy to sell yourself in a twenty-minute football conversation.

Oh man, that's the one I'm hoping for. I'd own that interview.

In fact, I'd love to sit down and have the first thing the recruiting partner say is, "so what's up with Texas A&M?"

Last year the schedule was released on August 18th.

The classes listed here are for the current year: http://www.law.uchicago.edu/courses/index.html

Are you guys talking about something else?
