I too am a LS drop out. I come here every once in awhile to remind myself what an insane time LS was for me. I mean seriously, everyone on this board is f-king nuts. I get it. I was there too, but now, just a few months after I dropped out, it seems like years have gone by and I can't relate anymore. Anyway, you know if you should drop out. If every day is torture, leave and don't look back. If you get some amount of joy out of it, stay.

I dropped out about a month into my first semester. Yes, it sucked. I went through some serious feelings of inadequacy, depression, blah, blah, blah. It was no fun having to tell everyone in my life that I had made a mistake. Nevertheless, it’s been a few weeks and I am certain that I made the right decision. I’m sure that it’s not like the work is over your head or you’re stupid or anything; you did get in to law school right? Law school is not for everyone; be happy that you figured it out now. Don’t be one of those people who continues just to prove how hard you are. It’s way too expensive/time-consuming if you don’t have the passion. Leave and don’t look back.

ok, obviously this thread has not provided any useful information to me or anyone else interested in the original question. Im only responding at this point because i am procrastinating.
jwelbomb: you didnt understand the question, which is fine. I resorted to being "condescending" because you called me a "loser" and a "fvckhead", with the only provocation being that I asked "is this really that confusing." My question was not confusing, but it confused you because you didnt read it very closely, or you didnt understand it because you didnt know what the words I used meant. Then you got pissed when I pointed that out. Sorry.
AJ: Google didnt find one for me. That's why I asked this board. I was hoping that someone here was in the same situation as me and had discovered a free, downloadable online dictionary. I appreciate your initial westlaw idea, and thanked you for your imput, even though it wasnt going to work. Give it a rest, you werent the target of my "condescending" post. The third world country i live in decided last year that its students shouldnt be playing partypoker during class, so blocked internet while classes are in session, even though they had ports installed at every desk a few years ago. Which is retarded.
Jewelbomb: Assuming that only a girl whould think that jewel is "bomb", have you ever made 30+ threatening phone calls in one day to your ex-boyfriend because you saw him talking to another female in the cafeteria lunch line? I have a feeling you would do this. Get back to me about this. I am having fun trying to picture you in real life.
Ok, so I got a little defensive. Like I said, I was trying to be helpful and thought it was kinda bad to get all “is it really that complicated” on my ass.
As far as not reading your op very closely…guilty as charged. Still, you could have ignored the advice if it wasn’t what you were looking for.
I certainly do not think Jewel (I think that you are referring to the recording artist) is bomb. I can’t even remember what stupid song she sang. I would also never use “bomb” in its adjectival sense.
Also, no I have never made 30+ threatening phone calls to my ex-boyfriend because I’ve never had an ex-boyfriend or any boyfriend for that matter.
I’m a (straight) dude.

You know what, nevermind. Is that really that confusing?
It obviously is, fvuckhead. You didn’t say that you didn’t have the internet in your classrooms, only that you had no wireless.
Next time ask the right questions and you might get the right answers.
1. see where I say my school seems to block internet? Anyway, that doesnt matter. The title of my post says it all: "Is there a free downloadable law dictionary?"
now, I assume you are in law school. So lets break down the elements of my question.
1. free: this means no charge.
2. downloadable: this is important. different from "searchable."
3. law dictionary: blacks would be preferable.
so I'm assuming that you dont understand what the word "downloadable" means, which concerns me because this is 2005. Maybe you should look up the term, in, say, an online dictionary.
I know what “downloadable” means. Because I am unaware of any downloadable law dictionaries, I and several other posters tried to be helpful and suggest something else that might work instead. Sorry. You are completely right to dis people who take the time to try to answer your stupid questions. Suggestion: if you don’t like the advice given IGNORE IT rather than being a complete condescending fvck about it.

By the way, I've been in a study vacuume all weekend. I had no idea of Rehnquist's passing. It's crazy that I'm getting my news from L.S.D.

I see Scalia or Thomas as C.J., more likely Scalia. The way I see it, it doesn't really matter. Bush will appoint a conservative ideologue. I’m not tryin’ to get all political on ya, but realistically it’s what Bush must do to appease his base. The Democrats will mount a typically lame-ass fight during the confirmation process, wasting everyone’s time. Bush will get what he wants in the end.
Even though he’d old as hell, I think Stevens would be a great C.J. (fat fvcking chance)

OK, So I find myself spending a great deal of time reading all this stuff in my casebooks other than the actual cases. I can see how reading cases is very important, but how much time does everyone else put into reading all the other stuff? Is it that important that I work through all the hypos, questions, notes and junk? If so, what level of scrutiny do y’all give this stuff? Do you ignore it, give it a cursory glance, or spend a great deal of time trying to absorb everything and working all the hypos in your head? I guess the reason that I ask is because I feel like I may be spending WAY too much time on this stuff, and studying in slow motion. My goal here isn’t to lean all this legal minutia, I want to do what will get me grades dammit.
I’ve toyed with the idea of just reading the cases in my casebook with a great deal of care and using Legalines for the bll and supplementary sh*t. Has this worked for anyone?

and, no that is not my picture, so don't even start that sh-t about that being a potential source of my problem.
LOL. Dude, I totally thought that was a picture of you. My whole conception of “the Kentucky Hammer” has now been shattered. If you don’t mind, I’m gonna continue to pretend that you look like that because the picture gives me a great deal of joy.

Yesterday on the “Democracy Now!” podcast they interviewed Bill Quigley, a Loyola Law Prof who was volunteering at a hospital in New Orleans where his wife worked. It was a pretty moving interview. He talked about the terrible situation that was going down at the hospital due to lack of potable H2O and electricity.
Anyway, he was supposed to be interviewed today, but they couldn’t reach him. On today’s podcast they said that the last known contact from Prof Quigley was a text message sent to a colleague. “No Water, Sick, Call somebody for Help.”
Fvucking horrifying. I’ve heard several interviews regarding international law with him. He seemed like a super good/smart guy. Let’s hope he’s OK.
So…has anyone else heard anything about this? I can’t really find anything on the web.
