Could someone tell me what schools are the best for an election law specialization? Considering clinics, professors, programs, etc? Thanks.
My civ pro and evidence professor specializes in Election law.. he teaches it at my school. He went to Georgetown law... I mean election law i would figure takes place most within the government and government law schools are best in D.C. so Georgetown would be first in my opinion.. Followed by George Washington and American...
PM me if you are interested in contacting my professor and asking him... I would give you his contact info, so you could ask him personally.
definitely property... our professor made us read soo much..way too much..
It is tough b/t civ pro and property.. but i kinda liked civ pro... I didn't think it was that hard. Property had the lost aspect of it.. i hated covenants and easement and future interests... Future interests alone i spent 3 days on!

Are you more excited about spending the rest of your life in Cleveland or Philadelphia? I'd choose Cleveland, personally. But if you prefer Philly, go 'Nova.
After about 5 years working in one market, a lot of states offer the person reciprocity, where they do NOT have to even take the other states bars. http://www.pabarexam.org/Bar_Examination/Reciprocity_Information.htm
plus after about 3 to 5 years of practicing you will have enough experience to give you and edge... I'd say if you want to take antoher states bar.. then you should at least have 2 years, but the best way to go is through reciprocity, but you will have to wait longer.... This is a chart is a little more detailed... http://www.crossingthebar.com/content/Reciprocity-Chart.htm

Without having read this thread:
Are you serious?!! Cleveland THE SHITHOLE!! There is no good places to go, the downtown is almost inexistent with a bunch of abandoned buildings AND the BROWNS SUCK!! And i'v spend the past two years in the midwest... nothing to it... Chicago is the only placed i'd permanently stay... INDY even out does ratlands of cleveland...
In the end....9 out of 10 people would rather live in Philly...Especially when it is compared to Cleveland.....

ewwwww why would you want to live in Cleveland Over Philly??!! Explain yourself!! haha
In undergrad, I took notes in paper notebooks (as most other undergrads), but I know most law students take notes on their laptops. Since I'm not used to taking notes on my laptop I want to know... which program(s) are best for note-taking or recording in class? Any other note-taking advice you could give me is appreciated!!
AGREED!! DID YOU SEE MY ADVICE?? HAHA I made sure I joined the best groups.... you know the ones with the best outline bank... Very important....

Honestly I do not think I need to say the argument. I am giving an inference of what the argument is... That this article's conclusion is crap... that it proposes that people should give up on THEIR dreams of being a lawyer, just b/c they didn't get into an ivy league school or get a full scholarhsip!
I'm sorry, i know way too many lawyers that are doing fine, came out of a 4th tier school and didn't get a full scholarship... You know why, b/c they enjoy their jobs, and yes they are paying off their debt, but remmeber it doens't have to be paid off right away.. The payments are monthly and are not bankrupting... I plan to pay off my loans, but i'm not in a rush too. The school will get its money when it gets it money...
In the mean time I will enjoy my life.
I have only 1 more year left then the bar... I love law school and i'm sure you will too. I hope that you are not one of the elitests that are out there who believes in the all or nothing mentality, if so.. .than most likey you will not be happy... Sometiems you have to do your best and do what you want b/c you enjoy it, and sometimes you can't get the best of the best of the best.... B/c even the elitest aren't happy all the time!! Just do your best and enjoy life... Advice for any and all.
The declarant who asked the questions can take this advice any which way they want... It is my hearsay, offered for the proof of the matter asserted....jaja sorry i had my evidence exam today.... - ciao

So according to the article, u should just forget about law school unless you go to a top school and/or get a scholarship.... no not buying it... never will. The article makes things worse than it is.
Although, i would agree, saving money should be a prime reason for picking a law school.
By the way... this is comming from someone who just finished his last final of the year and is living in high hopes of being a 3L finally!!!
