Current Law Students / Sitting in the law library today...
« on: August 31, 2008, 07:11:46 PM »
and some random guy walks up to me and starts asking me about divorce law and multi-state judgments and so on while I was in the middle of reading.  Wouldn't let me get a word in edge wise, finally I told the dude I am not an attorney and cannot give legal advice.  He wouldn't give up though.  Finally I told the guy to consult an attorney because he wouldn't shut up and was wasting my time.  He got the hint when I finally picked my book up and pretended to start reading again.   Damn public university library rules about "citizen" access...

Choosing the Right Law School / Have to decide...
« on: July 20, 2008, 08:56:40 PM »
Oklahoma City U or Arkansas?   Go to the best school I got in at Arkansas(100) or OCU (190ish)?   OU is not making waitlist decisions anytime soon, I called last week, and so I need to move or stay.  I would like to return to OKC/Norman area after graduation and I feel that Arkansas will give me more leverage/prestige in the OKC market.   THIS SUCKS... 

Current Law Students / # of OCI interviews and employers
« on: March 12, 2008, 02:32:14 PM »
How important is the number of OCI interviews and employers that a school reports in getting a job?  One school I am interested in has lists just 5 OCI, and another lists 35.  Essentially the same rank of school, but I would have to move for the school with 35 OCI.  I would assume that the school that has 35 OCI would hire deeper into the class? right?

Job Search / Over 30 yrs old recent grads question
« on: January 18, 2008, 03:51:23 PM »
I've got a couple of questions for the over 30 3L's and grads.

How receptive were firms/clerkships about your age during your job search?
Did you sense any hesitation or feel that you got less interviews because of your age?
Do you feel your younger classmates had a better chance of getting a job?

I ask because I am 33 yo entering LS this coming fall and was curious.

thanks in advance.

Choosing the Right Law School / Missouri--Kansas City quandary
« on: April 13, 2008, 08:03:02 PM »
According to this study:   The statistical difference between Missouri-Columbia, U of Kansas, and UMKC is negligible.   What gives?  I thought that U of Kansas and Mo-Columbia had the pick of the best jobs in Kansas City.  I have also heard lots of bad things about UMKC, anyone have any solid info?

Incoming 1Ls / Which order to read these books?

For those that have read them or some, in which order would you proceed?

I will be reading Turrow's 1L first and then LS Confidential by Miller before I read any of the below books.

Planet Law School 2-- Falcon
Law 101--Feinman
Insiders guide to your first year of LS--Spizman
Acing your first year of LS--Noyes & Noyes
The complete LS companion--Deaver
Introduction to The Study and Practice of Law-- Hegland
An Introduction to Legal Reasoning-- Levi
Starting of Right in LS-- Nygren

and after I get done with these I am gonna browse through these:
Legal Writing in Plain English: A Text With Exercises - Bryan A. Garner
Plain English for Lawyers (5th Edition) - Richard C. Wydick

I like to read. ;D

I am going to bed but will forward it when I get up at 4am CST to anyone that wants it.
