Current Law Students / Looking for a Good Supplement
« on: January 28, 2007, 03:53:02 PM »
I'm in an (awful) class that uses Corporations and Other Business Enterprises, by Hazen and Markham.  The class is a year-long course, and I did OK first semester (B+), but essentially you teach yourself in this class, and I absolutely hate business law.  Does anyone know of a good supplement for this book?

Current Law Students / Public Defender Work
« on: June 28, 2006, 04:45:00 PM »
 I was hoping someone had some insight into how difficult it is to hire into a public defenders office [state or fed, although obviously the latter is more difficult]. I am leaning towards working in this area and I think I will be fairly competitive during OCI  (around top 10%, good grade in Crim, taking Crim Pro and Evidence next year, and maybe advanced crim pro in the Spring). I know that the DA hires a lot of students and grooms them for positions during law school, but I have no real interest in working as a prosecutor. I would really like to get a position at a PD office next summer and hopefully hire in somewhere when I finish with school in '08.

 I would appreciate any insight.

 Anyone else plan on attending this event? I will be there, bugging them about what it takes to remain in the top third of the class.
