"THE "LAW" IS JUST SOME bull INVENTED BY PEOPLE. IT'S NOT A LEGITIMATE ACADEMIC FIELD OF STUDY, LIKE SOCIOLOGY OR PHILOSOPHY. THERE ARE NO "RIGHT ANSWERS." YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO JUSTIFY ANY POSITION, NO MATTER HOW OUTRAGEOUS. YOU WILL HEAR THESE TERMS, AMONG OTHERS, UNTIL YOU WANT TO @ # ! * I N G PUKE: "PUBLIC POLICY CONSIDERATIONS," "REASONABLENESS" AND "BALANCING." YOU WILL SERIOUSLY CONSIDER QUESTIONS SUCK AS WHETHER OR NOT A 4-YEAR-OLD CAN BATTER AN ADULT WOMAN, WITHOUT PAUSING TO THINK ABOUT HOW ABSURD THE QUESTION IS IN THE FIRST PLACE. YOU WILL JETTISON ANY COMMON SENSE, DECENCY AND FAIR-MINDEDNESS YOU ONCE HAD AND REPLACE IT WITH MECHANICAL, PSEUDO-INTELLECTUAL THOUGHT PROCESSES THAT DO NOTHING TO ADVANCE THE QUALITY OF LIFE IN OUR SOCIETY. LAWS ARE WRITTEN AND APPLIED ARBITRARILY. IF NOT, THEY ARE APPLIED DEPENDING ON POLITICAL CONSIDERATIONS. LIBERALS AND CONSERVATIVES ARE EQUALLY GUILTY OF THIS. THE "LAW" IS NOTHING MORE THAN A SET OF FICTIONS AGREED TO BY ELITES -- IT IS A GIANT LIE."

Wow. You just made me want to go protest the law.... ::)
Dude, everyone knows this... if you do not you are either a retard or a really naive chud. I wouldnt even begin calling sociology or philosophy a legitimate field of study though... If you are going to do that, name something useful like chemistry or biology. Biologists do something that effectuates change, whereas philosophers and sociologists tend to be ivory tower prick professors that dodge the draft and usurp tax money through their booster or state funded (state school) salaries. Right answers suck... if you want a "right" answer, go to f-ing Med School. Last I recall, philosophy class is a whole lot of assholes sitting in a room having a verbal circle jerk about a 2000 year old town idiot. Philosophy and Sociology can also be found in a value pack on some college campuses.. its called RELIGION CLASS. We know exactly how useful religion is in providing right answers and effectuating world understanding.

Lastly, "Elites" as you put it so poignantly, are the people that care enough to vote on things... Legislation is made by representatives that we elect, and interpreted by judges that are either elected, or appointed by those we elect. If an individual is crass enough not to vote, and effectively disenfranchises himself each election through apathy, then thank the Catholic Gods that the "nonelites" dont make law.  I dont feel the least bit sorry for people that are apathetic enough to cry and female dog at a "world cant wait" event but wont go vote for a penny tax provision in their town, know who their state senator is, or petition at a city counsel meeting against proposed code, legislation, law, etc. that they find objectionable. You have all the opportunity in the world (barring felony convicts in some states) to vote, be active in political process, and effectuate change, creation, or repeal of laws, codes, statutes, etc.

expire in a Conflagration

Im a 2L. I think that in a way, the classes become more socratic than less. Teachers expect more from you because you know enough to have made it past 1L... which if you are at a lower ranked school, is particularly a novel feat (higher attrition). As for elective courses, I find the ability to take courses I am interested in to be enjoyable, but this comes with the caveat that you must remember that the BAR will test on whatever the BAR will test on for your state and it would behoove you to take courses that deal with whatever material may show up on that exam. I think that writing class is a little bit easier because you know how to creac, crpac, etc. and have a few papers, and hopefully a summer of work under your belt. Is 2L easier though? Not particularly, from my point of view; but with 1L behind you, you are more accustomed to the pace and work. 3L, I hear, is cake.

I havent dropped a take on this yet. Dude, if you are at a T1, good for you... now work hard and network.. if you are at a T4, work hard and network... while the t4 guy may have to take a different trip around the mountain than the T1, he can still get to some great places with his/her education. I think its the person that makes the degree work for you... not the other way around.

i go to howard. I ust finished 1L year. It is a great school, great student body, and awesome teachers. It is a school where you will work your ass off for every grade you get though. You will come out a good attorney but you will work your butt off for it. I hope I see you here next year. Feel free to message any Q's to me and Ill do my best to answer or refer you to someone that could answer.

Hell, I hope I made it through that first year gambit!

Current Law Students / Re: How long to repay student loans
« on: April 29, 2006, 06:27:39 PM »
chart is crap. I know only 2 persons of all the attorney's i know that paid off their loans within 3 years.

One of them was a child of a very wealthy family, whose father conditioned the paying of his loans based on his ability to graduate magna cum laude (he did, and got 115K paid off, AND a car)

The other is a hard boiled personal injury attorney who somehow got lucky as hell on a medical malpractice case in FL where the doctor was intoxicated, and punitive damages in the sum of 1.1 million were awarded on top of the 3.9 of the rest of the damages that were awarded for P & S, future loss of income and other things... (person was left completely disabled. he did this his 3rd year in. He paid off his loans, invested into south fla realestate, and pretty much practices because he wants to and not bc he has to
