Where should I go next fall? / Wisconsin-Madison...

From what I hear they have a rather good law school, especially in the area I'm interested in "American Indian law." Also, does anyone know that if it's true that if you attend law school in Wisconsin you do not have to take the bar in Wisconsin?

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - The American Bar Association on Monday narrowly passed a controversial proposal that will allow lawyers to pierce sacred attorney-client secrecy rules to help stop financial crimes.

 


In a 218 to 201 vote, the ABA's policy-making body amended its ethics code to allow, but not require, lawyers to breach attorney-client privilege if they believe doing so would stop a client from committing a financial crime or fraud.

$70,000 job. So he prepared a rather unique pitch for an interview and just

Law School Applications / JAG programs?
« on: July 04, 2003, 08:47:05 AM »
I was looking into, possibly, going into a JAG program after Law School.  I'm presently still in undergrad but the Marines have been pestering me about going to officer training before I enter Law School.  From what they tell me, there is no obligation for attending officer training school but you do receive a minimal amount of money for attending.  After LS, I belive you're required to sign-on for 3-years-1st year pay is around $35k but they do cover housing, food, healthcare and other benefits.

The air force has also contacted me regarding their JAG programs. From what I hear, the AF pays better than other branches.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

anyone have an opinion on any of the above listed schools?  I know Univ. of Colo. had some problems with the ABA awhile back but I believe that has since been cleared up.  Others have mentioned that Tulane teaches to the Louisiana state legal system which, obviously, has been built around the French system.  I haven't heard much about Florida State except that it's relatively easy to get accepted to - from what I hear, they have a fairly good (ranked 30th) International Law program.

Any suggestions?
