Current Law Students / Summer Jobs

How is everyone's summer internship experience going? Anything interesting so far?

Current Law Students / Finals
« on: April 05, 2006, 06:50:13 PM »
With finals just around the corner, is anyone else finding that they were nowhere near where they were last semester, in terms of outlining, studying, hypos etc? Or is it just me slacking off?

Does anyone have any opinions about how useful the Chemerinsky hornbook on Con Law is?

Current Law Students / Obnoxious Classmates?
« on: February 04, 2006, 10:33:57 AM »
Do any of you find that some classmates are more obnoxious than usual this semester? I'm not sure if it has to do with grades and class rankings boosting their confidence or whatever but I'm starting to think that it's no wonder people think lawyers are rude and arrogant!

Current Law Students / 2nd Semester - Still Lost?
« on: January 21, 2006, 02:57:07 PM »
Anyone feel this way: It's the second semester, we should have some idea of what we're doing by now right? Well, I'm just as lost in terms of what I should be doing this semester as I was last semester. Sure now we sort of know what to expect in terms of using supplements, taking law school finals and writing memos for our lwr classes but half the time I still don't know what the heck I'm doing and if I'm doing things right.

Current Law Students / DOJ Honors Program
« on: January 14, 2006, 07:53:12 AM »
I know that the DOJ has an honors program where they hire recent grads as entry level attorneys but they say it's highly competitive. What does that mean? Only Yale, Harvard, etc? Is the govt just as much about school prestige as the big firms? If you do well at a tier two school, do you have a decent shot at the fed gov honors programs? I just want to have an idea of what I'm up against. At least with the big firms, some of them will recruit at lower tier schools but only students at the top of the class. Is it the same situation here? Does anyone have an idea? The career services office people aren't very helpful and everyone I know isn't interested in govt work. Thanks!

Current Law Students / Criminal Law Supplements?

Has anyone used the Delaney book on Crim Law? Any opinions on the book? Was it helpful? Thanks!

Choosing the Right Law School / tell me good things about boalt
« on: February 08, 2005, 08:33:24 PM »
boalt seems to be getting a bad rap....can anyone tell me why they LIKE boalt?

i'm thinking of going for the good IP program and the relaxed grading system (which i think i will learn better under...minus all the stress of letter grades).

will it be tough for me to get a job in nyc after attending boalt? has anyone taken the bar in both california and new york and care to comment about it?

what do people think about passing up a scholarship to fordham to go to boalt, which will be expensive for me?

Choosing the Right Law School / CA Residency
« on: February 08, 2005, 08:26:35 PM »
a quick question about establishing residency in CA...if  i continue to pay real-estate taxes on my apartment in nyc, will that bar me from qualifying for california residency? or are people allowed to own property elsewhere? are people allowed to have two residences - if i change my voting and mail to california, but still have an apartment in nyc, and treat my apt. as either my vacation home or rent it out, will the UC system give me residency after one year?
