Law Firms / Re: Bald Hair
« on: July 04, 2007, 04:30:35 AM »
Even though a bald head is currently the rage because many men with receding hair lines have resorted to this style to appear cool, the bottom line is that a full head of hair, properly groomed, is still the epitome of class and style.  A bald head is a severe distraction despite its trendiness, except for a very small number of men whose head shapes, facial styles, and body types make being bald an option that is flattering.

A goatee on the other hand is always an obvious statement of lack of style, class, and sense.  Appearing like a "billy goat" is never cool and clashes greatly with every sense of decency and civilization.  Goatees are better left for people who want to strum banjos in the back woods, while they shoot road signs and shop at Wal-Mart.  A truly tacky look that places one closer to a trailer park than a law firm culture, likening one to a hillbilly rather than a highly developed professional.

That's one way to look at it.  I almost get the feeling you are trying too hard to be better than the next guy.  Anyhow, you may not be alone in your interesting and colorful viewpoint, but I've been hearing from a lawyer that the bald fad has infiltrated even the legal profession.  Good thing?  Sounds like it all depends on the hiring manager.

Law Firms / Bald Hair

Are there any law firms that consider a bald head and a goatee to not be conservative enough?  How about just the bald head and a clean shaven face?

What are some of the easiest fields to get into?  For somebody who doesn't care to make lots of money but to just have a fulfilling legal career?

General Board / To "pass upon?"
« on: January 06, 2007, 01:56:04 AM »
I've seen this phrase used often, and it seems like they're used in slightly different contexts.  Anybody want to shed some light here?

1. To judge
2. To encounter (as in something being brought to a court's attention)
3. To pass up (as in choosing to not encounter it)

Try "High Court Case Summaries."

Interesting.  I have both the legalines and the high court case summaries for farnsworth.  The actual outlines seem rather short compared to Emanuel.  Do you think they cover enough?

They're perfect for my needs. I don't use them as a substitute for any class reading - just to clarify the material and focus my case reading. They serve the same purpose for me as the BarBri 1L outlines do relative to Gilbert's - the same fellows write both outlines but the BarBri material is distilled and serves my purpose best.

For what it's worth...

Thanks for that info.

I also bought the Hillman hornbook.  For those who find the Farnsworth hornbook to be too comprehensive, anybody have an opinion on the Hillman hornbook?  Additionally, I wonder how Hillman compares to Chirelstein.

General Board / Best outline or supplements for Farnsworth 6th Edition?

For those who use the Farnsworth 6th Edition for K, what commercial outlines have you used?  I'm looking at the Emanuel, but it doesn't seem that good for my casebook.

I do like the hornbook by Farnsworth, but would still like a good outline.
