Every professor at my school that I spoke with admits LS doesn't really prepare you for the bar.  You almost always have to take a bar review course to make sure you'll pass.  Even a genius like Eugene Volokh took a bar prep course just to be safe (yes, he told me himself).

Yeah, this is so true, especially if you'll be taking the bar in a different state. Most schools will probably focus on their own state's bar.

Thanks for your quick response.
I'm actually tired of all the politics and hierarchy of law firms, so yes, I do plan to go solo upon getting my JD.

My main focus is to get a JD degree so that I can practice law in NY.

I am a resident of NY state and I intend to practice in NY after getting my JD.
If I attend law school (any aba-approved), say, in Florida, can I still take the NY bar exam?

Test 39 Session 1, Q6-11

Exactly three employees of Capital Enterprises—Maria, Suki, and Tate—attend a three-day conference together.  Each day, there are exactly three sessions on the three topics of the conference—one on hiring, one on investing, and one on regulations.  The following rules govern the conference:

   Each conference participant attends exactly two sessions,
    which are on different topics and on different days.
   Neither Maria nor Suki attends any session on investing.
   Tate does not attend any session on the third day
   At most two Capital employees attend any given session together.


Have problem how to set up this game, please show the set up by drawing out a diagram.  Thank you.

How do you symbolize and what is the contrapositive of the following symbols:
1. If the stand carries oranges, then it carries both pears and watermelons
       O -> P.W
   If the stand carries watermelons, then it carries figs or tangerines or both


2. If W is selected, neither H nor Z is selected
       W -> ~ H . ~ Z

What is the contrapositive of the above symbol?

Thanks!
