Title: The Students' Board
Post by: Andrew on August 24, 2004, 08:47:36 AM
Many Law School Discussion users are becoming actual law students this week.  It's time to buy books, learn about hairy hands, and get called on .  When I set this site up a few years ago, I envisioned a totally separate area for discussing these things, as well as other law student issues such as searching for jobs, comparing firms, exchanging outlines, etc.

While traffic to the pre-law board has exploded, the Students' & Graduates' board remains rather quiet.  I want to encourage everyone starting law school to move on over to the students board.  Over the next couple months, I'll be working to promote that section and improve it (so please send me suggestions).

Everyone is welcome to be members of both boards, but lets keep the topics separate to keep things organized and easy to find.

The Students & Graduates Board (http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/students/)

UPDATE: Despite anything to the contrary you may read, I eventually merged accounts between the two boards, so you now need just one account for both boards - no need to make a separate account.

SNUGGLE has worked hard for his 100+ posts and some have worked even harder for their 5,000+ posts.  Some of us may be hesitant to move for fear of starting over at the bottom.  Is there anyway for us to maintain our status when we make the big switch?  SNUGGLE wants to know.

Sorry to break it to you, but it looks like you already made the big switch.

SNUGGLE isn't sure who or what you are yet, but he'll be looking for a white mouse smoking a bong.  Shouldn't be too many of those around the room.

There's no way to keep your status, but I suppose I could go in by hand and credit your new account with a bunch of posts so that people will see that you are an active poster.  You'll end up with an account for each board.  There's just no other way to do it.

This goes for anyone by the way - set up an account on the Students board and send me a note from your Pre-Law account.  I'll credit your Students account with posts.

And please stop impersonating each other.  I may have to delete accounts if you steal someone's username.  (ie SNUGGLE has a right to the SNUGGLE name on the Students board.)

Post by: Andrew on October 04, 2004, 10:28:58 AM
You probably have to actually be in law school to know about the hairy hand.  And even then, it will depend on your contracts professor.

And that's all the information you need to find out exactly what I'm talking about.

Ruskie had a 4.0 in Harvard's most difficult programs. She doesn't need to spell "break" correctly. Clearly someone who graduated from Harvard with a 4.0 would not deign to our level by using correct spelling.

Andrew,  I think a lot more people would use the student board if you merged it with the pre-law board.  What's the reason for requiring two separate accounts?

Great site, by the way!

Seriously, I don't have a problem with there being two separate accounts.  Actually, I think it helps organize the site better.

Hawkins doesn't even mention hair on the hands. It comes from McGee vs. US Fidelity Guarantee, which was McGee's appeal to his lawsuit against his insurance company, to reimburse him for settling Hawkins.

hey all, just wanted to share this awesome site I found that has a ton of courtroom footage:

www.thetrialprofessor.com

I needed to study some cross examination for a mock trial and looked everywhere. YouTube had a few vids, but they were pretty crappy and I had to sift through a lot of junk...this site is categorized and easy to navigate through. Didn't know where else to post, "The Student's Board" seemed like the most logical place.

Hope it helps you as much as it's helped me!
