trial advocacy
crim pro
professional responsibility
intellectual property
evidence


so you are a 2L with a ridiculous course load? do you use the waltz evidence book?

hmmm I dont know who the author is to tell you the truth...I left it in my locker it school :D

Its not so bad...at least not yet though I think trial ad may just kill me...I didnt realize evidence was a prereq before I signed up and Im not one to shrink from a challenge and drop so we're gonna give it a go. 

good luck...hopefully you aren't on law review and trying to get a job at the same time...must be tough.

no law review but I am trying to write on to a journal that just moved its editorial board here...and I do intend to do the trial competitions so I may not actually do the journal thing so I dont know...I gotta do all I can do cuz my grades aren't super spectacular

have you considered taking a semester to focus on grades? ...i mean, do nothing but study? if you are within reach of a decent gpa / rank, then you might want to consider.

well I did that last semester and my GPA improved greatly...TBH I didnt study much more the second semester than I did the first, so I dunno.  Im choosing the consider the first semester a blip on the radar and emphasize my upward trend in grades.  As of now, I dont have anything but to concentrate on grades.  If I dont do the journal, I want to make board of advocates so I have to do all the trial comps and try and do pretty well I suppose.  I know I want to go into litigation so it would prolly be better to concentrate on that stuff rather than doing the journal anyway, I just havent made up my mind though

there are dumbasses at every age, dont forget that.  And you are only as old as you feel and act.  I tell you the good thing about being married and going to law school is that you have all the time that you would spend chasing tail to study :D

It's just about learing the material, not going through some technical hoops.  Whatever it takes for you to learn is what you should do

Current Law Students / Should I do this?
« on: August 22, 2006, 06:51:15 PM »
so I didnt grade on or write on to either of our two journals.  I just got an email that they are starting a third journal, the Journal of Islamic Law and Culture and they are having a write on competition beginning next week.  I was trying to figure out whether I should write on or not.  I am trying to make the board of advocates for next year so i dont know if I should try and do both or not, or if it is even worth doing this new journal...I really dont know why Im writing this, probably just as a way to organize my thoughts
