Current Law Students / Re: Georgia State

Hey, I am at Georgia State. I dont personally know the transfer students. I would look on the LSAC site at the law school data to see how many transfer students they took last year. Also, join the yahoo transferapps group and look at the databases to see what people got into Georgia State with.

Transferring / Re: Georgia State v. Emory.... is the money worth it?

Hey, thanks for the advice. Did you get your big law job during fall OCI. Did you have a high rank from your previous school that employers liked. Or did you do well your first year to get that job. Im just wondering what your situation was and how you went about getting that job. Thanks

Yeah, its not fun.

So you have your grant. A to B, until some crazy thing happens, then to C.

Think of anyone who is alive at the time of the grant. It does not matter.

Kill them.

Then ask does that grant have to vest in 21 years.

Try to think of some situation where it will not vest. and that is your argument on the exam.

Like A to B then to C when Michael Vick wins the superbowl. Kill off someone and ask if the land will HAVE to vest to C within 21 years. since Vick will not necessarily win the super bowl the grant is invalid.

Job Search / Job choices

So I can either work with the mediation department of the EEOC or with a solo practitioner that does workers compensation defense work.

What do you all think would be the best experience or what would look the best on a resume for trying to get a job with a big firm.

What kind of law schools do you guys go to. I see no evidence of anyone being a heavy drinker here.

Look at it this way. Alot of law school is to prove that you are smarter than the other students in your class that an employer could potentially hire. Even if you dont learn what you need to know to practice while in law school, you prove that you are smart and are capable of learning what you need to know to practice. That is what firms are looking for.

I think eventually you get to a point of diminishing returns. Is reading the cited cases going to help you understand the law better than you could from just that one case. Maybe slightly, but I think you would be better off spending that extra time reading a hornbook, or an examples and explanation book.

At this poing im reading the hornbook and commercial outline before I read the case. I figure that way I already know the black letter law before I go into the case. I dont spend as much time reading the casebook and I feel like I pick up more information from the case since I already know how it will be decided.
