I don't know how computer savvy you are so, go to the top tool bar and click insert, then go to symbols, scroll down for the section symbol and highlight, then select shortcut, and create a short cut so you won't have to keep doing that.  My short cut is Alt + s, so when I hold down the Alt key and type s, the section symbol is automatically inserted.

Hey everyone,
Well I just finished my first week. Not so bad, actualy it was not bad. But in my first class, torts, the professor says " lets see, who will be the first in the class of 2008 to be subjected to the socratic method". Im sure you know where this is going. Yes it was me. What I have found so far, is as long as you are prepared, you will not get hammered even if you are way off base, as long as you make an effort my profs have been reasonable. I am most worried about research and writing, I think that is going to be the most difficult for me, and it's only worth 2 credits.

Anyway, I hope everyone is doing well...

Yanky...Keep the retreat no surrender

no retreat no surrender... lol, how did you know?

Congratulations!  We made it!

Actually, I really like my Civ. Pro. class, the professor is very animated and it makes for a great class.  Torts is my next fave... so far.  I don't really mind property, and instructor is great, but there's just something about the class...  Legal Methods class is ok, but again the instructor is great.  They gave me the info for my closed memo... as soon as I read it, I'll let everyone know what it's about as soon as I read it.

What is everyone else's impression of their first week?

Have a good weekend everyone!

We don't start that for a few weeks... today was a bad day, I should know better than to try to help people.  I'll learn one of these days. >:(

Yes, I have a few that tell me, "I'm not really finding this difficult at all."  Oh... did I ask?  ???  I have also heard, "the readings only take me about an hour"... really, I don't see you raising your hand to brief a case.

As for the girl who recieved an Audi... you should ask her why doesn't she buy her own beamer?  I'd love to see the look on her face...

Yah, either Oct 1 or Oct 8th... :P

So are you all enjoying law school?

I am enjoying it so far....

Well, I'm glad I didn't respond yesterday when I wanted to tell you "I hate it, I don't know what I was thinking when I subjected my self to this horrid process."  Fortunately, today was much better and I am happy that this is my calling... who knows what tomorrow will bring.

There were other things happening to make things worse... I locked my keys in my car on Monday (yes, I am going to be a good lawyer  :P ) and the street lights weren't working on the way to school on Tueday.

I consider myself extremely lucky with the professers I have... which is a good thing.

You can copy and paste the briefs, but not the outline... I'm trying to figure out a way to circumvent that problem.

You pay for it and can only look at each thing 5 times?? That's crappy, and I definitely won't waste my money on it then.

Yeah, let's just say I'm a little pissed.  I don't remember reading that when I was making my decision or I would have bought the d@#n book.  As far as I can tell it isn't on the website.

I'm having a "problem" with the e-legalines... you can only access the cases a limited number of times.  Five to be exact.  Just thought I'd let you know, because I was surprised.  That goes for the outlines as well... only 5 times.

Edit:  Oh, I guess I should say the actual material is good.  ;D
