as long as youd didnt say that you are looking for a career in pubic law

as i recall, attorneys used to apprentice to those already in practice, and then sit for the bar, without benefit of "formal" training at all.

the aba is now talking about requiring an apprenticeship, much like a medical internship, after graduation.

so would it be considered a compelling reason to state in my app to gulc that "professor steinbuch told me what a great piece of ass jessica cutler was and i wanted to hit it for myself"

i say fold it into an original origami shape, or something akin to one of the old "pop-up" books i used to have as a kid.

and remember, something pornographic is always a plus.

i always find ways to remind my professors that i spent 17 years in special forces, and that i have forgotten *none* of what they taught me.

such as "have you noticed what an excellent field of fire there is from the back of the room?"

then i twitch, just a little.

Transferring / Re: Will Law Review Boost My Transfer Options\Chances?

So you've already been offered admission to law review and you're a second-semester 1L?  I have never heard of that, but good for you.  You should definitely do it, especially since you want to transfer.  As far as time spent on law review, you're in a position to do just as much as is necessary to not get kicked off.

me neither.  i was 2/148 in legal writing first semester, and they didnt offer me anything more than the opportunity to write on in the spring like everybody else.

.... so im guessing a donkey punch is outta the question? ::)

Haha probably yes since I won't be sleeping with her again.  I was a little drunk, but I remember asking her if my penis was the proximate and but for cause of her orgasm (she's my Torts professor).  Looking back on it, that's pretty embarassing  :-\.

Nothing to be embarrassed about there either. That's a hilarious comment. You should have also asked her if she could give you a Learned Hand Job.
After you break it off, let us know how it went. You know, just in case this ever happens to me.

 :D :D :D

every last one of my female profs are fairly butt-ugly.

the dean of admissions is hot, but she quit to become a judge.

i would like to try her.

"...if i may please the court, your hotness...."

another option would be to write your own article for a journal or review and get it published.  many profs are willing to work with students on doing that

this same prof also said that she was considering making everyone write their exam rather than type.   :P

Job Search / Re: Weighing Summer Oportunities

I myself hate it when people post stuff like this but I want some honest assessments.

I have two interviews tomorrow with state judges. One is civil, and one has mixed jurisdiction.

I have about 20 cover letters I sent to firms that are still outstanding, I'm not expecting much because of my school and the fact that most of them are paid big bucks.

If I am offered internships for both halves of the summer should I take both?

I'm only concerned that it would make me look like I was set on a clerkship after graduating or lacking in diversity of experience.

Any thoughts?

you may have mentioned what year youre in but i cant remember -- if this is your 1L year i'd say take 'em both; then work for a firm next summer.  i think that would be a big plus.
