Law School Applications / Re: Harvard 1Ls Taking Questions
« on: December 01, 2006, 07:50:30 PM »
I was recently accepted at Harvard and I was wondering if it is fairly easy to get a 1L summer gig at a Boston firm.  I won't have as much mobility in the summers since I have a family.

Also, what's in the binder that they're sending out to newly accepted students?

And, do you know of many/any non-trad female students with families? 

there aren't too many married women with children that i know of but they do exist.  you should contact the harvard law couple's association to get in touch with people and hear what their take on it is:
they were pretty helpful when my husband and i were getting adjusted here and it seems like they provide a pretty good community for families, if they want it.  lots of get-togethers and shared knowledge, etc.. 
also, i live in the affiliated housing for couples/families and the families with children seem to really help each other out.  there's a community to be had here as well, and i can see how it might be refreshing to have some kind of network OUTSIDE of the law school.

good luck with your decision!

i'm in section 4, too.  i agree that it's the most awkward topic: "hey, are you on that website? oh, never mind."
panda, would it be possible for you to put those cleveland and mann exams up again?  of course i didn't get them the first time around.  it would be very lovely of you.

shoot.  i just found it:

Property/Section 4 & Section 6 (Mann)

The casebook for the course is Dukeminier, Krier, Alexander & Schill, Property (6th ed., Aspen, 2006).  For the first class on Tuesday, September 5, please read Pierson v. Post, pp. 17-21.

You may not use laptop computers in class.

yep, they're from the casebook, just in case any other section 4ers were wondering besides me... thanks, guys.   

well, good for you (she said bitterly). see you next week!

really? did you do it all online?  i went through the coop and spent 400+, half-used and half-new.  how'd you manage that?

So, all my mail for the last month or so is lost somewhere in the postal system, so I never received my section letter.  Could someone in section 4 tell me anything useful that was in the letter (specifically the reading assignment)?  Thanks!

The assignment is pages 1-15 & 25-40 for the first class (Thurs.) and pages 40-59 for Fri.  Thanks for digging up those old exams! 

dw, which book is that assignment for? "Problems in Contracts Law?" i'm in the same boat. thanks!
