General Board / Re: the blue book
« on: November 22, 2006, 12:58:19 PM »
and to think of the nonsense if you are a Social Security disability lawyer drafting court documents required to be in proper bluebook form.

Oh, the insanity!

General Board / Re: Fourth Year in Law School??
« on: November 22, 2006, 01:25:23 AM »
most, if not all schools require you graduate in 3 years. Although, if you do a joint-degree program, where u get a JD and an MSW/MPA/etc. then, you can stay for 4.

General Board / Re: Discount for BarBri if ABA member?
« on: November 01, 2006, 07:05:22 PM »
I never heard anything about BarBri. I do know that if you are an ABA student member you get $100 off PMBR bar review. Barbri is for your specific state. PMBR is for the multistate portion.

i've researched the JAG (Air Force) pretty thoroughly and I have found that it pretty much depends on your experience in the JAG, as well as what you want to do after. For instance, if you want to do criminal law and did mostly military justice while in the JAG, then it wouldn't be too hard to transition over. Same goes with contracts.  Infact, with respect to contract law, you might even be in a better position to transition over due to the fact that contract law is pretty much the same whether it is in the military or civilian. However, and this is what a lot of JAG's get pigeon-holed(sp?) into, is during your tour in the JAG you do primarily military justice. But the problem is, when u get out, u want to practice civil law. This creates problems.

As far as choosing what area you want to practice, while you do fill out a "preference sheet" indicating your preferred area of law, I am told that the military's needs go first.

perhaps coming up with an original response, rather than cutting and pasting an article.

It's a stupid question that no one wants to take the time to answer.

T1: 1-50
T2: 50-100
T3: 101-150
T4: 151 and beyond.

General Board / Re: What can I do with a finance degree and JD?
« on: June 07, 2006, 05:29:03 PM »
you could also think about going the financial planner route (although, if u went to law school, i doubt this). doing wealth management, setting up trusts, etc. and if ur really ambitious, you could do the financial planner/CPA thing. Like becoming a CPA, becoming a financial planner also requires an exam, so if ur lazy, like me, you might want to forget about your undergrad, and just be a regular ol' lawyer.

1L job search / Re: What are you doing this summer!!!
« on: May 15, 2006, 08:38:02 PM »
Clerking at a 2 person firm and am really nervous. I hope LRW prepared me for this but I doubt it!

Agreed.  I think that is what is freaking me out the most.  The writing.

I wouldn't sweat it. the lawyers know u have no idea what ur doing.

All this bashing is just getting ridiculous. Sure, Erapitt may have strong opinions. Agree with him or disagree with him. But the folks who are constantly personally attacking him just look weak and pathetic. He's obviously hitting a nerve, or you wouldn't take so much time compiling complaints against him. I've agreed and disagreed with him on issues, but I've always found him friendly and open to debate and discussion.

agreed.
