Current Law Students / Slacker's Guide to Law School

I want to reccommend a new book. "The Slacker's Guide to Law School: Success Without Stress" by Juan Doria. It's pretty good.

Have you seen the Pepperdine campus?!?! It looks like a postcard. I would definitely go there. Even if you are studying law, life in Malibu can't be at all bad.

A lot of people end up at Southwestern because they want to move to LA and they can't get in to the other schools there (UCLA, USC, Loyola). I like LA, so I think it would be worth going to Southwestern just for the reason of its location. But I've talked to several students from Southwestern, and they all said they hated it.

I don't know if I'd get a book on just the admissions process. Might as well go with a more general guide, like "Law School Confidential", that touches on admissions as well as everything else. I just read "The Slacker's Guide to Law School: Success Without Stress" by a guy named Juan Doria, and I thought it was pretty good.

Santa Clara is very good for IP, and the location is probably the most exciting area of the country to practice IP law.

I suppose one could make a decent living at it. I don't think enough people have tried their hand at it as of yet, so it is still unchartered territory.

Spain is on a role: The Euro Cup, then a Spaniard wins Wimbledon, and now a Spaniard won the Tour de France. We'll see how they do in the Olympics

Current Law Students / Re: UNC-Chapel Hill versus UC-Hastings
« on: July 28, 2008, 02:09:58 PM »
I've had friends go to both. My friend who went to Hastings didn't like that it wasn't attached to a larger university. Whereas UNC has a beautiful campus and every amenity imaginable available to its students, Hastings is just a building in a gritty area of San Francisco, with as many bums hanging around outside as there are students inside. Then again, there's so much to do in the Bay Area that you don't really need a big campus.
