General Board / Re: How do I type the article symbol?
« on: September 23, 2007, 07:42:06 PM »
if you replace SS with the symbol- whenever you type words that end in ss, you'll get the symbol instead.


This is not true.  I've been using this method for over 2 years.  The only time SS is replaced by a section symbol is when i type 2 capital S on their own (space_SS_space).  This works even if you were to type a word in all capital letters, or all small letters w/ capital SS in it. 

Before you say something doesn't work in a factual way, you should try it first...

Before you say something works in a factual way, you should inquire as to which word processor is being used. I've had the problem with using that method and, quite frankly, it's just easier to type ALT 21 then having to create the little macro in the first place.

Just do ALT 21 and you'll have it- don't have to touch your mouse and it's part of your typing!!

THE EASIEST WAY TO GET THE SYMBOL ON WINDOWS IS TO HOLD DOWN THE ALT KEY AND TYPE THE NUMBERS 2 1

WALLAH- YOU HAVE TEH

IF YOU ARE USING A LAPTOP, AND DO NOT HAVE A NUMBER KEYPAD- YOU'LL HAVE TO USE THE FUNCTION KEY (IF YOU HAVE NUMBER KEYPAD ON THE LETTERS)
THE NUMBERS ON THE TOP OF THE KEYPAD DO NOT WORK FOR THIS.  YOU HAVE TO USE THE NUMBER KEYPAD OR ON A LAPTOP THE FUNCTION KEY TO GET YOUR KEYPAD ON YOUR LETTERS.

My grades went up in the Spring. But, I suppose that's because I was working full-time in the Fall  :D

-What was the hardest part of 1L (that maybe you didn't think was going to be hard, but was?) The time it takes away from your life

-What was the easiest (or least hard)? Sitting in class during lectures-really wasn't bad at

TRUST IN THE CURVE- TRUST IN THE CURVE!!!!

Sometimes it helps- sometimes it hurts- but for the most part, if you're an average student- it can help you!

THREAD HIJACKERS SUCK!! ;)

Anyway- first year will be done tomorrow- am I glad I went? What a loaded question!

First, as of right now- no, I'm not glad I went- I feel like my brain is in a mixing bowl being whisked in two directions and there's no relief in sight!  When mixed with impleader, supplemental jurisdiction, res judicata issues, JOINDER SUCKS!!
As does calculating damages under the Restatement 2d!!

Ask me this question about a month AFTER I get my grades and I'll be able to give you a valid response...

By the way, I live in New York.  ;)

Take what you can get to get the experience that will be REQUIRED when you're job hunting.  Good luck.

I'm an older student who goes part-time, has a child, house, husband, 2 dogs, bills, etc., so I think I meet your pre-requisites to answer your question.  I was a bit floored with the $10/hr issue as well.  However, when it comes down to it, you're still a law student, so there is not any more value to you then to the 21 year old kid who's in law school with you.  I've been in the legal field for 15+ years and left my full-time legal job to focus solely on law school (aside from my family and personal life).  I was very well respected in my area of law and am known around my area.  I'm taking a NON PAYING position 15 hours per week with a judge to have that on my resume- even though I could work at my old job for $30.00 an hour.  I want to get exposure to things I haven't seen- which is what EVERY law student should want to do.  I don't need to network because I've been in the field for so long; however, the experience you gain, whether you're making $0.00 per hour or $10.00 per hour will be well worth it.  If you cannot leave your job because you cannot live on $10.00 an hour- then find something you can do to volunteer 10 or so hours per week.  It's not about them needing you- it's about you needing them!
good luck
