General Board / Re: Bar Exam Structure.....

Well, this explains it all, I guess





Not really! Read a little bit closer,

Quote
One reason for California's high failure rate, Ms. Murphy says, is that graduates of unaccredited and correspondence law schools are allowed in California to take the test. California's pass rate for ABA-approved schools is in line with those of other states, Ms. Murphy says.
 


The reason why Ms. Sullivan failed is actually very simple: she is stupid.


Yet far more prestigious than you!  Ding!

Ah, the wonderful misogynists hate alluring pictures of women, but it's OK to post ads for male escort agencies.  Yes, that makes sense.

Crim law E&E is a piece of *&^%. I follow the PLS approach and still think that... avoid the book at all costs

Are you kidding me? I guess it just goes to show how everyone is different. The Crim Law E&E is my bible for the way my crim law class is taught. I barely read my casebook because its a bunch of crap  but I read the E&E and I am golden.

I agree. The Crim Law E&E is very good.

Why?

Oh comeone, follow the argument please. You are claiming that tier 3 students are failures and those who do not shoot for big law are unambitious losers. I say this is false and have hard evidence to back it up. You just seem to run your mouth without anything to back it up. I never said that tier 3 schools are producing inferior students. I simply stated it is a slightly easier road for tier 1 students due to reputation of the institution. Perhaps your reading comprehension schools aren't up to par. Might want to work on that.   

WHAT HARD EVIDENCE?

They are "employed" months after graduation?  So what?  Most people with a bachelor's degree can get a job shoveling fries at Mickey D's. 

A friend of yours has a really successful law firm where the only bad litigator is some UPenn nerd?  Big deal.  Anecdotes aren't evidence, and besides, I already conceded that there are exceptional[/b] cases.  I'm sure if you dropped Clarence Darrow in a T3 school, he'd still be successful.  But face it--T3/4 students are those who have basically flunked all metrics and can't get into a better school OR inexplicably avoid the challenge (don't even give me "but they got a full ride" because anyone in their right mind would count the other opportunity costs as well). 

A good portion of the graduating class of a T3 school can't even pass the bar.  That means they can't even earn the minimum qualification to practice law in that state.  Show me how many successful lawyers don't pass their bar after dumping money into a law school degree.  This doesn't even count the significant drop-out rate at toilets like Cooley.

Beyond this, you and I have a very simple disagreeement over what constitutes "success" in a field.  You seem to think that continued mediocre performance should be commended.  I don't.  Law is not like medicine--it is a hierarchical profession where there are clear leaders (t6, maybe t14) and clear losers (most T3/4 grads).

The prestige of lawyers has been declining for decades, as measured by the Harris Poll.  That isn't because of top-flight lawyers like John Roberts or Sam Alito.  It's because most lawyers people meet are TTT ambulance chasers who presume to think they are in the same class as Roberts/Alito thanks to some TTT J.D. degree.

General Board / Re: Ruling and sentence...
« on: April 02, 2006, 12:22:17 AM »
Sentencing quite obviosly involves phrasing the judicial opinions in well constructed sentences and paragraphs.  The Supreme Court House has traditionally looked down upon Justices that do not engage in proper "sentencing" as used above.  A "Ruling" however, indicates that the distance between various "Sentencings" within the judicial opinion are spaced correctly; which necessarily involves the use of a "ruler." The Justice that demonstrates superior sentencing and ruling at the end of the season advances to the next round.

I laughed.

HAHA. Not good enough to defend your statements obviously. As a result, you were forced to change the subject by bringing up your own financial situation. Not a sign of a good lawyer at all. Where did you go to law school, Concord School of Law?

Don't be bitter because some tier 3 or tier 4 graduate who is more likeable, has a better personality and better networking skills, is going to make just as much or even more money then you.  

What was there to defend?  All you did was ad hom me by calling me an a-hole.  You didn't make an argument; you gave up the argument and just went for a personal attack.  You changed the subject, moron.  Furthermore, you run a pretty little performative contradiction by immediately trying to associate my supposed argumentative deficiency with a TTT law school.  By your own admission, TTTs are inherently inferior and produce inferior students.  Thanks for playing.

I'm not at all threatened by T3/4 grads who are charismatic and host great cocktail parties.  Odds are this person won't even pass the bar.  Again, thanks for playing.

would anyone help me here?
whats the difference between 'ruling' and 'sentence'?

Rulings are made by Supreme Court House judges?!

[]s


First of all, there is no such thing as "Supreme Court House judges."  Hope that helps.

A ruling is the court's finding either on a point of law or the case as a whole.  Sentencing applies to criminal cases once a defendant is found guilty.  Informally, the sentence is the punishment the court hands down for criminals.

If you can see Chuck Norris, he can see you. If you can't see Chuck Norris you may be only seconds away from death.

MAY?  MAY?
