Current Law Students / Re: Unpaid 1L summer internship at corporate firm?

Employers generally pay you.  Depending on the definition of employer, you could make the argument that anybody you're talking to about an unpaid position isn't an employer at all and therefore fair game.

Conversion just means, hey, you've got my stuff, give it back.

15 cases per class would be ~3-4 minutes on each case, which is patently ridiculous.  If you go through that many cases to learn the black letter law and expose the policy issues, your prof has no clue how to pick cases and probably shouldn't be teaching.

All of my classes we do 2 or 3 cases per class period max, and sometimes 1.  Sometimes more than one class period dealing with the issues presented by a single case.  10-20 per class is off the charts stupid.

From past years it looks like we'll get it with the section assignments around the beginning of August - I thought it was a writing assignment though? I didn't realize there was an entire book involved...

Yea I dunno I just had dinner with my Aunt and she had a friend who started at SMU Law in '02 and they had her read a book, according to my Aunt.  Who knows.. thats why I asked :)

When does this come out?  I've heard they have people starting 1L read a book over the summer, but I haven't heard anything yet.  When do they give out this assignment/tell us what book to read?  And what is the book?

After reading this thread, I think it's safe to say the answer is yes, and that you people are no better than those you're ridiculing.

I'll definitely be there..I'm excited! And good luck Ansel! I've heard a lot of people haven't gotten their decisions from them yet - I'm sure you'll hear good news soon.

Does anyone know if they have any more admitted student days, or if it's just the orientation in August? I know they had some stuff earlier on, but I didn't get a chance to go.

According to the calendar at there's an admitted students day on the 20th of April.  There's nothing on the calendar past May though, so there's probably some more that just haven't been added.

I've decided, they just haven't quite decided on me!  Hopefully I get a decision soon.
