Current Law Students / Tax Study Guides?
« on: July 07, 2007, 06:45:37 PM »
My tax final is purely t/f or fill in the blank. Does anyone have any suggestions for study aids that are mainly short problems?

Current Law Students / Learning Assistant?
« on: May 09, 2007, 07:17:43 PM »
So, how important is it to be a TA? I was asked to be one for the fall, but I would have to change my schedule so that the classes dont conflict. (I am really happy with my current schedule too.) Im also worried that it might be a lot of work. So, how good does it look on a resume? Is it worth it?

Current Law Students / Ranking of Jobs?
« on: March 01, 2007, 05:47:19 PM »
Under the assumption that the knowledge of many is better than the knowledge of one, I come to you for help. Looking purely at prestige and 'wow' factor for future jobs, which are the 'best' jobs. Possible list? Clerkship at big law firm, clerkship in small law firm, in house law, non-profit place, research job for law professor, judge externship, and others? I feel like this might have been done before, but it would be helpful now that we are all trying to find summer jobs.

Current Law Students / Business Cards?
« on: February 13, 2007, 07:55:56 AM »
So, my career services advisor was shocked to find out that I didnt have business cards yet. How many of you have them? How often do you give them to someone? What do they say besides name, school, graduation year, and email? Thanks!

Job Search / Patent Law Interview Program - Any thoughts?
« on: February 07, 2007, 01:36:14 PM »
Did anyone go to this in Ohio last year? Is it worth it to fly there? And if you found a job, did you pass the patent bar?

Current Law Students / Updating Resume with Grades
« on: January 30, 2007, 07:54:56 AM »
So, this might be a stupid question, but what exactly do you put on your resume? Our school doesn't rank until after the first year, but all the sample resume's only have rank. Based on last year's class, I know I am in the X percentile - should I put X% based on last year's class? Thanks in advance!

Current Law Students / How many people still don't have their grades?
« on: January 26, 2007, 02:53:37 PM »
And how long until you get them? We are supposed to get ours within the next week, hopefully. Ive heard last year they got grades the second week of Feb.

Job Search / I need job advice
« on: January 10, 2007, 06:23:05 PM »
I was recently offered a job in another state. It is with a large company that has one in-house lawyer. I would be assisting that lawyer all summer and they would pay for housing and a small salary. I would like to stay in my home city for personal reasons, but in a job market with lots of law schools, I dont know the chances of getting another offer. The career services office says that it is probably, but I probably wouldnt get paid. What would you do? (I am a 1L.)

Current Law Students / Is buying the newest edition really necessary?
« on: August 17, 2006, 07:17:09 PM »
I have heard some people say that you can buy an older edition cheaper and then get the newest cases online. Does this actually work? Has anyone here tried it? Like everyone else, Iím just trying to save money on books!

Incoming 1Ls / Engineers and Law Schools
« on: April 19, 2006, 10:37:53 PM »
I am graduating with a computer science degree and have written more programs than papers in the last four years. Is anyone else worried about being behind in the "writing skills" department? If so, anyone have suggestions for how to work on this during the summer?
