Current Law Students / Will a Civil Law Curriculum screw me?
« on: July 28, 2005, 02:52:32 PM »
I am planning to attend Loyola New Orleans Part-time (only civil law curriculum), BUT I DO NOT PLAN TO PRACTICE IN LOUISIANA.  I am only going b/c i currently work here and want to start my legal education. 

1)  Has anyone transferred from Louisiana to a different state school?

2)  Will most of my credits transfer? 

3)  Will learning about civil law help me at all?

4)  Will it be tough to pass the bar in other states if by chance i stay at Loyola NO for all 4 years?

Thanks!

Current Law Students / PT Prgram Help...
« on: March 19, 2005, 01:11:28 PM »
I got into Nova SE in South FL and may have a good job opportunity down there as well.  Is it possible to work a full-time job and be a 1L in a part-time program?  Is that the reason why they have the PT program so you can work a full-time job as well?  I mean if the work is at all comparable to FT program then there's just no way.  Just curious if anyone has any input...

Current Law Students / Sports Law
« on: January 11, 2005, 11:22:59 AM »
Any good sports law programs from schools not named Tulane or Marquette?  That is all I've heard about and I'm looking to apply to a few more schools.  Please let me know if you've met a good sports law professor or taken a good sports law class. 

Even if you do go to one of the previously mentioned schools, let me know what kind of job opps you are looking at. 

J-E-T-S...Jets! Jets! Jets! this weekend baby.

Choosing the Right Law School / FIU
« on: January 26, 2006, 11:07:32 PM »
any opinions?

from what i hear:  up and coming school; provisionally ABA accredited due to the newness of the school; great professors; in-state tuition; only south florida public law school;  3 years of FIU equal 1 year of nova SE moneywise

3.43 and 155 won't get me too far, and i want to live in south florida.  got waitlisted then denied from miami with those numbers.

my numbers (3.43 and 155) are pretty middle of the road and south florida is where i'd like to live.  so my options are seemingly limited.  didn't get into miami last year.

Incoming 1Ls / Light reading before 1L?
« on: August 02, 2005, 04:20:29 PM »
are there any books out there that i should read to get some background on 1L courses before the first day of class?  i have some spare time and would like to do some light reading to get a grasp of some of the topics that will be covered.  if anyone has any suggestions, i'd appreciate it.

Incoming 1Ls / Loyola New Orleans Part-Time. Anyone?
« on: July 28, 2005, 02:40:16 PM »
so I've got a question...

loyola NO only has a civil law curriculum for part-time evening students.  has anyone ever (or know anyone that) transferred from a civil law program to a common law program out of Louisiana?  if so, how difficult was it to get the credits at the new school.  i've been told that most credits will transfer, i just want to see if anyone else has had to deal with this. 

also, if i do get the civil law degree from loyola...will i be able to practice law elsewhere and how hard will the bar be?  i plan on practicing in Florida, i am just working in NO and wanted to start my law education.

Incoming 1Ls / part-time program question
« on: July 27, 2005, 05:27:56 PM »
i just got into loyola new orleans part-time.  i applied late figuring i'd rather start law school while working (i've been working here 2 years) than going to a full time program that i wasn't thrilled about.

does anyone have any experience of doing a PT program while working a full time job???  how hard will that be and is it manageable?  any advice will help.
