Check the NBA directory and see how many attorneys and judges are NSL/YMCA law school graduates.

Where is Professor Hogan?  Well, she is in a position (with JD behind her name) to practice law and/or teach at a law school.  Come to think of it, there are a lot of things she can do with a law degree. :P  If you didn't want to be in her position (meaning = professional mobility), you wouldn't be attending law school. :o

Yeah, you wish you could be "where" she is.  Attending law school and graduating from law school are TWO SEPARATE EVENTS!  Like it or not,  Professor Hogan has "made the cut", she has a law degree. ;D

I am sure that the upper level professors are quietly "making notes" about the posts on this board.  Wonder what their attitudes about this year's first-year class will be next year?  Wonder what they think about the ability of these students to become attorneys. :-\

One more thing, having a discussion thread for NSL students was (and still is) a good idea.  However, this is a public discussion board and is not the personal domain of anyone.  It is not a blog for students to register every little "whine" they have about a "difficult" professor.  Nor is it a place for students to post every insignificant "thought" that passes through their "thin brains". :-* 

The "word on the street" is that a lot of NSL students are scared to post on this board for fear they will be "connected" to the whiners.  Those of you who "think" you are not being taught in Professor Hogan's class, think about this -- if you took some of the time you spend "blogging" on this board and applied it to your studies, you might feel differently about her class.  Oh, that's right . . . some of you "whine" on this board while you are at work.  People make a "big deal" about copies of these posts circulating among the NSL professors.  Maybe a copy of these posts (and the times they are made) should be sent to the Tennessee congressional delegation so they can see what the taxpayers are getting for their money. >:(

At least n2dlaw understands.  The others are too busy whining to "get it".  Hmm . . . I have a sudden craving for a slice of gouda.

Oh, the flames! ;D


I hope JJ will continue to post here.  If he doesn't, I won't know every move he makes during the day. :D  I want a job like his, where you can post to discussion boards all day while on company time.  No wonder my taxes are so high! >:(  He "works" for the government. ::)

Oh, to have a class without the forced jokes and comments by JJ.  One comment might be funny, but do you have to comment on every little thing in class? ???  Law school is not the time to be the class clown.  We know you are there.  Every now and then, you make a really good point, but it gets overshadowed by all of the "wanna-be cute" comments.  Do you think a judge would put up with them?  Real Law is not like the court TV shows.

Regardless of what anyone thinks about Professor Hogan, she is the one with JD behind her name.  She is where YOU want to be.

Oh horror!  The flames that will follow this post.

Here's a story from the Tennessean which contains a lesson for us. Would you like to guess where David Gold went to law school?

Lawyer going to jail for telling witness to lie

Staff Writer

He apologizes for plot to help client accused in robbery

It was a lie that was used to try to help his client avoid a robbery conviction, but it's going to cost Nashville attorney David Gold 90 days in jail and possibly his law license.

Yesterday Gold pleaded guilty before Davidson County Criminal Court Judge Seth Norman to a felony charge of accessory after the fact of especially aggravated robbery.

Gold, 35, broke down yesterday in court when he apologized to the court and to the bar for his behavior.

The lawyer was caught coaching a woman to lie to authorities to protect a client of his accused in a robbery that involved a vicious dog attack. The lie was meant to cover the tracks of his client, Jeffrey Hammons.
Well, if you write about one NSL graduate, why not write about the other one?
