Current Law Students / 2L activities
« on: April 02, 2008, 01:07:25 PM »
i'll be a 2L next year and our class is getting a flood of information about things we can do during the next school year. journal and moot court seem to be the obvious top choices. does anyone have thoughts about which other activities stand out among the others in terms of usefulness, relevance to real life, attractiveness to employers, etc? i'm curious to know what other people think.

Transferring / GW to california
« on: December 18, 2007, 08:12:35 AM »
i like my school but i want to get back to california. where would i probably need to place in my class to transfer from a school like GW (#20-25 ish) to Boalt, UCLA or USC?

if i'm near the top of my class, is it even practical for me to transfer to UCLA/USC (15-16)? the disparity isn't as huge as it would be to Boalt.

Job Search / judicial internship
« on: December 12, 2007, 09:38:02 PM »
hi all,

recently shot a few judicial internships apps to my home state and have one interview set up over winter break with a federal district judge. in terms of "ranking" 1L summer experiences, where does this stand? i've heard that getting a judicial internship with a judge at the (federal) court of appeals is comparable to working in biglaw. where would an internship with a district judge stand?
