Canadian Law Students / Lap top computers?
« on: May 31, 2006, 10:11:44 AM »
This has the possibility of being a dumb question but I attended school when pens and paper were the only things used for notes and the such...Are lap top computers necessary for law school or are they just a nice to have?

If the answer is they are needed then what is the best type to get. 

Canadian Law Students / Getting Ready for 1st Year???
« on: May 30, 2006, 10:49:16 AM »
I don't know about the rest of you but I'm already getting anxious about 1st year.  The not knowing what to expect on top of returning to school after an extended break has got me a little nervous.  I'm starting this post to find out if anybody else has the same concerns as I do.  I also want to know what you're doing to prepare for school.  I realize it's only May but time will fly by and I don't want to show up the first day of classes and be overwhelmed.  I already know that the pressure to succeed is going to be high on top of the standards that we place upon ourselves.  What is everybody else feeling out there concerning pre-one L.

I'm attending Osgoode so if anybody has any information concerning classes, books, professors, etc..etc..  Any advice would be appreciated except the don't worry about it advice....It's not in my nature.  I don't want this to be a post just about Osgoode though.  Regardless of the school we will be attending it may give us a place to share our concerns and ideas for coping....that's the intent anyway.

Canadian Law Students / Extended Time Program VS Full Time Program
« on: May 13, 2006, 01:59:22 PM »
I am looking for some advice concerning the Extended Time Program versus the Full Time Program.  The reason I am inquiring is because I currently have a full time job but I have recently been accepted to a well respected Law School in Ontario.

My dilemna is this....I'm married, have kids, mortgage, car loans etc.etc.etc.  I want to get my law degree but I don't want to do it at the expense of my family.  Should I pull the band-aid off quick and get it over with or should I pull it off slow....

Any constructive advice would be helpful....
