General Off-Topic Board / Re: District of Columbia Bar Admission

Had a friend who did this. Took her about s year from the submission of documents. I paid for the MBE score because I don't have enough time to waive in without, but didn't end up applying. No reason for me to pay more bar fees.

As far as textbooks, it's fairly common for professors to require you to buy their own book especially if it's an upper level class on some sort of specific topic like International Law or California Mediation and Arbitration, etc. I think it's less common for the first year classes, where pretty much everybody is just going to use Prosser on Torts for example.
I had Epstein, but I'd agree as far as the rest, if the professor actually wrote the book.

That sounds dissimilar to OP's situation, in which the school has basically contracted out a casebook and essay review service.

It makes no difference. Do whatever is best for you financially and GPA-wise.

Maybe because politics elects executive regulatory and legislative lawmakers, plus the ultimate lawmakers, SCOTUS.

I don't think they made the exam harder. The NCBE is right to point at significant declines in LSAT scores, which is one of the best predictors of bar success.

Maintain, I didn't say anything about notarios. Soy de Los Angeles, so I am certainly familiar with them. I was more shocked that the poster was alleging that attorneys were violating their professional responsibilities by advocating for immigrants.

Tbf, he isn't that fat anymore. He even looks svelte compared to an average 'murican.

So many things to respond to...

Never heard of these rules of professional procedure and I'm from a border state.

Not sure those lawyers are advocating anyone break the law either or what exactly this supposed epidemic of illegal legal advice is.
