Current Law Students / Re: Legal Writing...

Sorry, I'm at the office right now, entering my 13th hour at work on a motion for summary judgement due Monday.  Forgive me.  ;D

Last night, I was entering my 14th hour of non-stop work, thinking . . . dang it, this is why I want to go to law school . . . I'm stuck here anyway! Might as well make 100K a year instead of 30K!  Anyway, just a revelation, totaly off topic!

Exactly!  This is a federal case, so I'm so sick of PDFing and scanning to get ready for the CMA or whatever the heck system that is that allows us to electronically file!

Please do not hate me for saying this . . . but i had to take legal writing for my paralegal certificate, which was taught my a Notre Dame legal writting prof.  The reason they have it taught by a law school prof is b/c it is to be just as the law school legal writing class is taught . . . anyway, I struggled and in one weekend read "plain english for lawyers" then went back to my studies, and it clarified alot and things started to make a little more sense.

It would be called [XXX County] District Attorney's Office.

Our Local office in Indiana is called the XXXX County Prosecutors Office.

I have also heard of Prosecuting Attorney's Office.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Friendly competition wanted

I think this is a very cool idea.  I am just starting to study in prep of taking the LSAT next year.  I will surely be in the running for the most improved since I haven't even taken my first test yet.  Are there requirements on the test?  Can it be from a powerscore or kaplan book or does it need to be past official tests?

Law School Admissions / Re: Movie Reference in PS?

glad so see someone watched that movie.

I hereby nominate Dwight Schrute for the Make Entirely Useless Posts in Every Single Thread, Yet Never Really Contribute Anything Valuable Award.  Seriously, if you are not an alt someone made as a joke, you are really sort of pitiful.

Wow that was pretty cut-throat.

So long as you do not include a reference to how the movie Legally Blond inspired you to become an attorney. 

When Reese Witherspoon rescued that dog from that mean old trailer man, well I just felt something in the pit of my stomach saying this is what you were meant to do.   :D

That would be a disaster.

That's hilarious!  Although to be honest, considering my first "career" was as a hairstylist (I do not intend to include this in my app) and I am known to act like a "valley girl" its pretty inspiring that even I, as ditzy as I may be, can go to law school.
