Current Law Students / Starting a new law journal
« on: January 22, 2010, 08:54:44 AM »
Good morning,

I'm interested in starting a new law journal at my law school. My concept is to focus on issues of public policy, economics, and politics, which are not areas of focus for any of the journals currently published by my school. Also, I'm interested in exploring the possibility of a journal based on new media (i.e. digital editions). But I don't know where to start.

Have you been involved in starting a journal? If so, what should I do? What advice do you have?

Job Search / Federal Public Defender - worthwhile?
« on: September 23, 2009, 10:20:29 AM »
My career counselor is encouraging me to apply for an internship with the federal public defender's office. I'm interested because it's geographically convenient and I love litigation. But I'm a little concerned about what employers, particularly judges, district attorneys, and government agencies think of the defender's office.

Any thoughts?


Current Law Students / Practice exam questions
« on: March 08, 2009, 10:08:21 AM »
My Con Law professor allows students to take practice exams and review answers with him to prepare for the final. He has only one old exam available to students for practice. However, several other Con Law professors at my school have at least 3-4 exams available. In preparation for finals, I would like to practice taking my professor's old exam and, for experience and evaluation purposes, would like to take at least one exam.

Can I ask the professor to come up with an additional fact pattern? Should I use the other professors' exams?
