Current Law Students / whos still waiting for grades
« on: June 03, 2006, 11:26:11 AM »
I am.  And it pisses me off.  I can't seem to really enjoy my summer until I get them.  And when I get them, I'll still probaly wont be able to enjoy it, but theres at least a chance.  I mean its almost a month after finals ended.  If I was a law professor, I know I would spend the nice summer days inside reading finals til my head was spinning. 

Current Law Students / hour billing rate
« on: May 22, 2006, 07:57:28 PM »
i recently finished my 1L year and working at a small firm.  I was just wondering the difference in what lawyers charge per hour, average at least, well like a solo guy, small firm, med, and large.  Also I always hear that Patent atty can make bank, my question was then do they charge more per hour to compensate?  just curious,

Current Law Students / showers at firms
« on: April 25, 2006, 07:04:44 PM »
so i had a friend have an interview and he said that the guy from the firm said that the firm had nice showers in the office.  While this would be nice for those occasional long nights, but I would get the idea that they have those showers and they are used often.  Anyone else have an experience like this, or how many firms actually have showers?  Is it the norm at a large firm?

Current Law Students / lawyers and white shirts
« on: April 18, 2006, 01:46:57 PM »
ok so earlier this semester i noticed all the 2ls wearing white shirts for their interviews, some exceptions, but the vast majority were white, is their some unspoken rule?  or is color looked down upon?  i realize that if i wore a bright yellow shirt or some bright obnoxious color, that could and should be looked down upon, but whats wrong with some color?

heres a list of the "best" 50 jobs,
interesting to say the least, and a college professor is number 2, maybe i'll move to rural america and work at a juco, that would be the life, except for living in rural america

Current Law Students / Patent Law Interview Program
« on: April 12, 2006, 10:10:09 PM »
ok, so i am prefing firms for this interview program which has students from any law school who wants to attend, and firms have requirements like top 10%, 25%, and so on.  Im at a 2 tier school, and I'm curious how a student at a top tier who is say 40%, and someone at a t3 or t4 who is top 10, one is qualified for the interview, that doesn't hardly seem fair?  or anyone think that a top of the class at a t3 could compete at a t1?  just things im thinking about.

Current Law Students / law journal
« on: April 06, 2006, 04:32:39 PM »
i was just wondering what other people experienced in the past.  I'm not sure every school is like this, but to get on, we have to write a 15 page paper the week after finals.  I can imagine that a number of people don't try because they are burned out from finals.  Any guesses on numbers, or is there a better way of doing this?

Current Law Students / the most annoying people
« on: February 22, 2006, 09:58:07 PM »
more than anything in law school, I can't stand the people that when the prof lobs this easy question, that 90% of the class knows, and no one volunteers, and the same people answer the question, i know some that do it just to move on and thats fine, its the people that answer it and then feel smart about it, arg, i would love to yell something and make them feel dumb, but im too nice i suppose,

Current Law Students / not going to class
« on: February 19, 2006, 07:49:14 PM »
so theres a class i have this semester and all of the older students say to not go.  Just read a certain commerical outline and do the old tests and you'll be fine.  I have heard like 8 students say this and none that suggest going to class.  So far in class, you learn stuff that might help you for Jeopardy, and thats about it.  I am thinking about starting to go only once a week and see what happens.  Any comments?
