Are you referring to the "gourmet ghetto?"
Yes, my bad.  Two hours of sleep will do that to you.  Will edit original post. Thanks! ;D

Yeah, you're right, stuff is open etc at night, but I'm not a clubber. And at clubs everyone's drunk and eighteen, anyway. What I want are lae night cafes and bars. Not enough of those. I guesst he college system makes it hard to meet people, too. When were you here? What did you do?
You should be able to find that in SF.  Also, the gourmet ghetto in Berkeley, although somewhat expensive, caters to that interest.

Can't wait till you come! ;D

I will be working at a corporate law firm with about 30 lawyers. I am also happy about returning to and working in my home town.

Congrats!  I feel the same way.  When I first left for law school, I never thought I would want to return home for work, but now I couldn't be happier.  The only thing that sucks about my summer job is that I will be living at home and will have to commute about 40 minutes each way to work.

Hi.  I am new to this discussion board.  I am making a decision right now between a FT program and a PT program.  I am wondering what y'all think about the opportunites for work experience as a PT/Evening student.  I suppose I could ask the schools, but their answers will be such that they will put the best spin possible on it.  What really happens?  Please be honest, even if it is brutal!  Thanks for your input. 

Good question.  While I do not have anything but my gut instinct to back this up, I would guess that it shouldn't work to your detriment as long as you have good grades, your school is accredited and you interview well. 

It may be worthwhile to place a call to the recruitment offices of a couple of organizations that you may be interested in and ask them.  If anything, they ought to give you a more honest answer than your school's career services office.

1) Examples & Explanations for contracts
2) Farnsworth Contracts (hornbook)
3) Chirelstein
4) Emanuel's
5) Casenote legal briefs
6) Cases & materials on contracts by farnsworth, young & sanger
(Or is that the same as #2?)

If you are using the Eisenberg book, get Gilbert because Eisenberg wrote it.  Gilbert is always a good call, regardless of the casebook author, but it makes even more sense to use it when the casebook and the outline were written by the same professor.  You know I love Examples and Explanations, so I would also recommend that. 

Hey Ruskie,

Can you tell me what you think about these too?

1) Modern Property law by, Bruce & Ely
2) Emanuel's
3) Introduction to the law of real property by, Moynihan
4) E&E


Try Gilbert's and Seigel's.  Seigel's has a lot of practice questions.  You may also want to try Examples and Explanations. 

The only one on that list that I have experience using is the Examples and Explanations.  Personally, I love that series and have a book for every subject that I take.  It's really good exam practice because you get exam-style questions at the end of each topic or chapter. 

Of the Examples and Explanations series, the most famed one is Civ Pro and I must agree that it is probably the best-written, most complete E & E.  The Property one is good, for the reasons mentioned above, but it does not cover all the little nuances of doctrine that you will find in a commercial outline like Gilbert.  I suggest using the E & E with Gilbert for a complete coverage of Property.

Good luck!

There are lawyers who are regular people...

Of course there are, Noelle!  Personally, I resent the stigma associated with our profession.  The reason I said I would rather date a school teacher than a lawyer (or a doctor for that matter) is that I would like to be with someone who's schedule isn't as full as mine.  I think it would be very difficult to find time to spend together if you both have very demanding jobs.

Awww, thanks, Kelly.

Sands - there's too much bull and drama there for me.  Please tell your boy HBCU to keep me out of y'all's *&^% over there.
