Current Law Students / Clinics
« on: October 20, 2005, 04:21:17 PM »
So I am still applying and have no idea where I'll be yet, but it's about time I start getting ahead of myself, so here goes nothin'.

What exactly do you do in a clinical program?
Are you mainly doing some kind of research for a professor at your school or do you work with lawyers from your schools surrounding area? Do you have contact with the clients?

I would appreciate stories and feedback from anyone that has experience in LS clinics, esp. with housing or juvenile issues. What exactly do you all do in there?


General Off-Topic Board / Cheap Shipping?

I need to ship a bunch of stuff, moslty books and clothes, across the country...cheapest way to do this?

Anybody catch it yet? The LA Times described it as 'The West Wing' meets 'The Office' - which is a pretty fair assessment...what is so hilarious and painful about the show is that a lot of that foolishness actually does happen behind the scenes...

I just stumbled upon this show this week...hilarious...It's like the old school 'In Living Color' with a spunky British twist to it...

I guess it's about time for it, so shoot...

Just got the DVD from Amazon, so that's what I'm doing tonight after the NCAAs...if you know what happens, don't spoilt it for me!

I love Seinfeld, but even they had some episodes that flopped on that series...Seriously, might The Office be the funniest sitcom ever, minute-per-minute?

Assistant to the Regional Manager (a.k.a. Assistant Regional Manager)

So I was all set on going back to law school at Berkeley (back in CA, where I'm from) but I just got the acceptance from Columbia (in NYC, where I've been working since graduating college)...

I know lots of people think it's insane to even think about going back to Boalt now, but I'm really considering it for the following reasons:

1) I miss my people. I'm really family oriented and all of my best friends are back in CA...even though I've made some great friends in nyc I think having all my peeps around me might help with the stresses of law school...

2) I eventually want to live in CA...even though I like the prospect of the CLS connections in nyc firms and clerkships, I know that I would eventually like to settle down in CA...

I wouldn't even trip about this but I feel like going to CLS isn't just a three year committment but more like a 7-to-10 year committment when you think about working after school and all...I love it here in nyc but that just seems like way long to be away from my loved ones back on the west coast...

Is this really a choice between family and career? What do you guys think?

Incoming 1Ls / Corporate Law News

Hey all,

Just a short one to see if you can point me towards a news source on what's going on lately in the Corporate Law field...any idea what a good industry sites, blogs, or magazines are for major deals, stories and such?

Hey y'all...just wondering if anyone has any tips on places to hang out or cool things to do in Montreal...I am going on my first roadtrip to Canada on Thursday and I would love to hear what you all know about the place...if you have any tips on history, art, sports, and of course, canuck nightlife, I would love to hear them...

Ok, the established rules are three lines, 5-7-5 for the syllable count. I'll go first:

Mailman did not come
With big envelopes for me;
Back to LSD...
