Current Law Students / Colorado market
« on: April 29, 2007, 04:38:25 PM »
I really enjoy Colorado, and am considering moving there after graduation. Does anyone have any idea as to the legal market for small, medium or large firms, or just overall?

Current Law Students / AF JAG summer advice
« on: November 13, 2006, 05:24:45 PM »
Well there seem to be a lot of people who seem to have very helpful information about the different JAG programs, how to get in, etc. But I have a little different question. I was fortunate enough to get selected for the AF JAG summer program this summer and am trying to pick between three bases. I am looking for any advice on either Davis AFB in Tucson, HQ in DC (didn’t say the name) or Schriever AFB. They did say that I would have more exposure to the MCJ at Davis (apparently they are more “exciting”). The benefits of HQ are obvious in that I would get to work with higher ups in DC, however I would also be in one section, and not really get a sense of what being a base legal officer would entail (where I assume I will spend my first years). THe benefit of Shriever is simply its location - love hiking, being outdoors . . . and there mission is really cool - although most of it is probably to classified for me.

Current Law Students / JAG career advice
« on: October 09, 2006, 06:31:47 PM »
I have a question for anyone who is in/ knows anyone in JAG. I am planning on joining the AF JAG next year when I graduate. Although I might stay in JAG, I am curious about my job opportunities if I decide to go civilian. Is it possible to get a decent midsize or large firm job after 4 or 8 years (I am still young at 23 so age shouldn't be that big a factor). I am at a mid-top 50 school and top 1/4 so my grades shouldn't hurt me, but they are not by themselves enough to get me a great job.

how important are law school rankings when dealing with schools such as Tulane? I just got in to Tulane, offered a nice scholorship but I am a bit apprehensive about attending the University despite their reputation because of the law school rankings? Just how much will rankings affect a relativly well known school?
