General Board / What do most students wear in Law school?

Someone posted a similar question on the pre-law board, but I thought it could best be answered here. So, how do most law students dress?

U of Nevada - Las Vegas / Anyone else going here in 2006?
« on: March 08, 2006, 08:26:53 AM »
I was just accepted at UNLV for 2006 PT. I am older, married w/children, and have worked full-time for most of my life. I plan (hope) to transfer my employment to NV (from Cal operations). Law school has always been a dream, but life had other plans for me. But now I am going and I am probably the happiest guy on earth. Anyone else planning on PT 2006? Anyone already attending?

So, I will be attending the Boyd School of Law at UNLV begining in August 2006 (evening). Yesterday, I received my course schedule via U.S. Mail. Actually, the school has provided a tentative schedule for all 4 years. Here is what I will face during 1L:

FALL 2006
Mon/Wed 6:15pm to 7:40pm - Contracts I
Tues/Thurs 6:15pm to 7:40pm - Civ Pro/ADR I
Tues/Thurs 7:50pm to 9:15pm Lawyering Process I

Civ Pro/ADR II
Lawyering Process II

Summer 2007
Lawyering Process III

My Contracts class will be taught by Hon. Bruce Markell, a U.S Bankruptcy Judge who clerked for Justice Kennedy  (while he was on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals). Judge Markell was also a Bruce W. Nichols Visiting Professor of Law at Harvard Law School and practiced law in Los Angeles for 10 years before leaving a partnership with Sidley & Austin.

My Civ Pro/ADR professor will be Ms. Jean Sternlight, who graduated from Harvard law school (cum laude)in 1983. At Harvard, she was Editor in Chief of the Harvard Civil Rights - Civil Liberties Law Review. Prof. Sternlight is She is co-author of a casebook on mediation and co-author of a forthcoming casebook on alternative dispute resolution and also a forthcoming book on arbitration. She is also the Director of Boyd's Saltman Center for Conflict Resolution.

I'll tell you, getting this info yesterday really got me pumped for LS. I can't wait to start!
