Boston U / Law Review = Job?

Rumor has it that some LR members haven't secured jobs for the summer or after graduation.  True or false?

You can list Moot Court under activities as

Moot Court (Anticipated Fall 2003)

If you are concerned about showcasing anticipated activities the CDO has been really helpful with advice about how to include clinics, moot court, etc. on your resume.

I know that every journal has contacted people.  I am not sure what the protocol is for people transferring, etc.  If you are concerned that maybe you missed a phone call, or your entry got lost or something, it's probably worth emailing law review just to double check.

Boston U / Moot Court for 2&3L's

What is the deal with moot court after the first year?  When in the fall (roughly) do people sign up?  Can you be assigned a partner?

And looking at numbers I am going to hypothesize that AT LEAST 80% of that 50% were not in the top 10%.

If you really want to be a lawyer go to law school.  It helps if you know where you want to work.   For instance, Boston is a market that likes Boston students.  A student at ANY Boston school has a shot.  It is true that the "worse" the school the higher you need to be in the class.  Also, think about what you want to do.  Some of the lower ranked schools are very good places for people who want to go into government or politics.  Suffolk in Boston is a good example of this.  

There are a lot of factors.  The most important thing is to go to law school because you want to be a lawyer.  It's not really something to do for shits and giggles or even because some lawyers make a lot of money.  If you aren't sure, take some time and work.

Do what is comfortable for you.  There are plenty of people use pen and paper and do fine- well better then fine even.  

Hope that helps!

There are.  Most BU students do not even use this board.  It isn't representative.  Any law school will have Type A, anal people.  I really think BU has less then some.  Just beware that they are out there, and avoid.

I am a 2L.  Guess that would mean I don't have a section.

My bet is TheyCallMeTopTenPercentum and Ryckman Boy are one and the same, or at least studied together.

Before ordering LEEW's take a look at the book that Farnsworth put on reserve in the library.  You may find that you can save the money and get the method from the book.

Also, the professors at BU are very approachable and LOVE to talk.  Swing by the first week to chat, swing by any time to ask questions.  All included in the price of tuition!
