I think online networking is important. I got my 1L summer job (and a lot of other opportunities) through Twitter, my blog, and other networking sites.

Just be sure to manage your online identity appropriately.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Accepting 2 seats

I know this will give me bad karma in the long run, but is it okay to accept a seat to 2 schools, if you haven't made up your mind yet? (especially if only one of them requires a $ deposit right now)... is any of it binding?

Bad karma. Check the deposit form to see if it's "binding" (aka Tuition Bill.) But really, don't do it.

Based on contract law and professional liability, under what circumstances is it advisable for a client to retain legal advice when contracting with another party?

When in doubt, tell them to ask a lawyer.

Ooo congrats on Cornell! I think quality of life is definitely better in the Twin Cities (and employment opportunities as well) but a Cornell degree does carry!

Oh, and as far as career services... I thought they were useful for resume related things, but I didn't expect them to find a job for me. I think their purpose is to give students the tools so that THE STUDENTS can find jobs.

hey guys,
Thanks for the leads.  I found a place in my hometown that drafts wills pro-bono and I just sent me resume/coverletter/references to them.  I am really open to ANYTHING, because really I find almost every aspect of the law interesting save for patents.  I will check those out and see what's goin on!  Thanks again!

Have you looked into summer classes (externships) or law-related volunteering? What about the public defender's office?

Ah, so the reasonable person hates Crim, too?  :P


At least for me, it's way too theoretical.

I think it depends on the quality of law school that you attend, but the main thing that makes law school different is the grading curve.
