If half the class BS'ed all day I wouldn't learn anything and would easily get confused and distracted.

Welcome to law school.

Wouldn't it make more sense to actually call up some random REAL lawyers rather than ask some RANDOM posters on LSD these questions? I think that LSD is just a chatroom for people to blow their days at work or where ever...while most people are blasting vercing...whatever his name is, and while his statement was quite the best flame I have ever witnessed, there is a method to his madness. People rely way too much upon this board for factual information when the best confirmation of whether you want to enter law is possibly an internship or LAW SCHOOL itself. No information that other people give you will suffice when it comes to law school because it is different for all persons, and while some may tell you it is a cake they may attend a T1 school where grades aren't that important to land a decent job or they are really lucky or really smart or a combo of any aforementioned versus someone attending a TTT and barely keeping a GPA above the required level due to outrageous attrition rates and such yadda yadda. Therefore, the OP should contact students at the prospective schools and lawyers who you may have come into contact with because that is where you will get the best advice. But vercing...whatever was is just school...dont have a cow...either you are in it to win or not.

Job Search / How do you find alumni from law schools out of state?

I am interested in locating any lawyers from WVU who practice in MD, DC, VA or NC. How do I find them?

SEC...I am interested in attending that program next summer, so let me know how it goes.

Actually I plan on doing one summer in big law simply because the pay is outstanding at a firm like Steptoe and Johnson. If it interests me enough I may, but I believe it would be better to work for the gov.t for a couple of years and then possibly do private practice. I would rather not go into too much detail about my law school plans because it just increases the amount of people trying to copy you.

I still think I would rather practice law in the government. The lifestyle seems more relaxed, and I want to spend time with my kids while they are young. Compared to how most people live in this country I have no problem making 60,000 and sticking in their for a couple of years to top 100,000. The stability of the job to me outweighs private practice, and whats the use of making all that money if you never get to really enjoy it?

I find it ridiculous for people to even ponder these type of questions.

I sat in on one of my friends classes at a regionally esteemed school one day. The prof. was teaching civil procedure and was discussing some case when they got off subject and started talking about money. The professor who was a Catholic Priest says everyone who graduates in this class will go on to make 100,000 dollars a year...some will make it as soon as they get out, others it may take years, and some may only make it for one year before they die...but if you stay in this profession long enough, you will make money, bottomline. So please quit, the corporate hellholes of America are calling you.

Doesn't the pay scale ramp up pretty quickly in 0-4 years time or at least have the potential too? I am looking to go into the Civil Division, Civil Rights, or Environmental Section of USDOJ.
