General Board / Where to have dinner
« on: March 13, 2008, 02:25:43 PM »
I have been offered dinner at the following locations: pizza at a friend's house or hambergers at another's. I haven't had pizza in about 3 weeks, and they are ordering from my favorite place, but I do love a good burger too and my in-laws offer a full ride there. I want to work in BigLaw. My stats:

Height: 6'1"
Weight 228 lbs.
Dietary restrictions: None

General Board / Required and Elective Classess
« on: May 03, 2006, 05:56:17 PM »
I am wondering what classes everyone thinks should or should not be required. I have a generic list of required classes; tell you what think:

Civ Pro
Crim Pro
Crim Law
Con Law
Professional Responsibility
Legal Writing

I left out and legal methods type classes like Trial Advocacy or Mediation.

I think Crim law should be an elective. I have no desire to practice in crim law so I found it substantively pointless. The "critical theoretical thinking" from that class was no different than any other law class, and pretty much exactly like torts.

On the other hand, I think that Administrative Law should be required. It is probably the broadest category of law in the country and its substantive and procedural due process issues apply to most legal disciplines.

Also, I think a business organizations/associations type class should be required, but I couldn’t tell you why. I just think it.

Though I have no authority to do so, I would ask that no law school names be used to avoid the typical “my school has better biglaw job prospects than yours” argument that just about every thread deteriorates into.
