Current Law Students / We're almost done with 1L year!
« on: April 27, 2006, 05:54:34 PM »
Wow!  It went by so fast, I can't believe that the *hardest* year is almost over.  After all that hype, it's finally going to be behind us.  And we're all alive!!!  Hopefully...

Job Search / What should I expect from my 1L summer job?
« on: March 07, 2006, 08:49:36 PM »
I'm a little nervous.  I don't know what to expect at my summer job.  Some of my friends say that their summers were spent doing very little work (maybe 5 projects) and having lots of lunches and social events.  They all worked for the same firm, though.  I'm going to a different firm.  Does anyone have any experiences to share? 


Current Law Students / First homework assignment...hide the ball?!?!?
« on: August 18, 2005, 05:49:23 PM »
Today was the first official day of classes.  We only had legal writing.  The assignment given to us seemed simple enough: read a case, state the rule, where the rule comes from and what it means.  I get to the case and it is a MESS.  This is not my first time reading a case (I did a summer program at another school to prep), so it's not just reader incompetence.  It literally was a cut and paste mess.  I would be in the middle of one paragraph and it would abruptly stop and start with something else entirely.  I would continue reading and what do you know?  There's the rest of the paragraph that got cut off.  It didn't happen just once, but multiple times.  What the f***?  How am I supposed to complete an assignment when I can't even piece together the frickin case?
