Current Law Students / New Public Interest Lawyer Taking Questions
« on: April 02, 2008, 06:30:48 PM »
There is a lot of info on this board about law firms, clerking, and other traditional types of legal careers.  I don't see a lot of info about public interest and nonprofit work.  I recently started a job in this position, that I REALLY like a lot.  If anyone has any constructive, RESPECTFUL questions about nonprofit/public interest work, I'd be willing to answer them (to the best of my knowledge.).

Current Law Students / Why are people so concerned about what they wear?
« on: August 13, 2004, 09:11:51 AM »
I don't understand why people are so concerned about what they wear to law school.  Isn't the main focus supposed to be learning the law?  So learn the law in whatever makes you comfortable.  Are there law schools out there with mandatory dress codes that I don't know about?  Can someone, please enlighten me?

Current Law Students / First Day Assignments, Compare Notes
« on: July 29, 2004, 09:45:21 AM »
I thought it would be interesting to see the difference (and similarities) among assignments given during the first week/ days of 1L at different schools. Here's mine, so far:

1. Read the book A Civil Action for Civil Procedure

2. Write a report to a committee using materials given for Legal Research and Writing

3. Read Plain English for Lawyers for Legal Writing

4. Read and brief a case for contracts.

This is what I have so far.  Other professors haven't posted their assigments yet.  Anyone else have assigments yet?

Black Law Students / The Hair Thread
« on: July 13, 2005, 05:02:30 PM »
By popular request (lol), I am starting the hair thread. Please come here and talk about your hair.  ;D 

Right now, my hair is natural. But last week it was pressed.

Do guys prefer natural hair or straight hair?

Ladies, do you prefer to have natural hair or straight hair?

Lets get this thread rolling . . .

Black Law Students / The Country Music Thread
« on: June 15, 2005, 01:08:45 PM »
This is a thread where we can come and talk about country music. After the conversation on the main board, maybe this thread should exist . . .after all, there is a hip hop thread, HBCU, we should have a country music thread as well. . .  ;) :D


EDIT:  The song that was in my signature line that started it all . . .

Kenny Chesney - When The Sun Goes Down Lyrics
Sun tanned toes tickling the sand
Cold drink chillin in my right hand
Watching you sleep in the evening light
resting up for a long long night

Cuz when the sun goes down, We'll be groovin
When the sun goes down I'm feelin alright
When the sun sinks down, over the water
Everything gets hotter when the sun goes down

All day long just taking it easy
Laying in a hammok where it's nice and breezy
Sleepin off the night before
Cuz when the sun goes down we'll be back for more

When the sun goes down, we'll be groovin
When the sun goes down I'm feelin alright
When the sun sinks down, over the water
Everything gets hotter when the sun goes down

This old guitar and my dark sunglasses
This sweet concauction is smooth as molasses
Nothing to do but breathe all day
Until the big moon rises and it's time to play

When the sun goes down, we'll be groovin
When the sun goes down I'll be feelin alright
When the sun sinks down, over the water
Everything gets hotter when the sun goes down

Repeat chorus

Incoming 1Ls / Anyone here just counting down the days?
« on: July 20, 2004, 06:25:21 PM »
I am.  I'm set with my room, I've got my expenses figured out, and I'm just counting down the days and wasting time in the best possible way.  Not because I'm bored, but because I can!!! Anyone else with this feeling right now, or am I alone on this one?
