General Board / Re: Sleeping in the Car Drunk
« on: September 03, 2008, 09:15:24 PM »
Did you read the case in Crim where the guy fell asleep in his truck in his own driveway, with a bunch of empty beer cans on the passenger side?

Claimed he was mad at his wife or something and went out there to drink, then passed out.

He got off because they couldn't prove whether he was coming or going.  No way to infer the driveway was the end of his trip rather than the beginning.

People get off all the time.  What's the citation for that case?  Whether the drunk was at the end or the beginning of his "trip," it would seem that the drunk still made or was about to make a "trip."

Zagat might also not be telling the whole story.  Hopefully, Zagat learned a lesson about "drinking and driving."

You were simply SLEEPING in the CAR.

We all know it's not a crime to sleep.

The fact that you were sleeping in a CAR does not make you a criminal.

It's that simple.

"It's that simple"?  What are you, a pre-law student?  LOL!

Remember that police officers make DUI arrests for a living.  As the officer said, you were intoxicated, and the keys were in the car.  Thus, from a legal standpoint, the car was within your immediate control.  You can check the applicable statute and perhaps some case law for your state, but do you really think this was the first time the officer encountered such a situation?

2L job search / Re: What to do if no-offered 1L year?

How does one handle call back interviews and questions if they were no offered by a firm during their 1L summer?  The firm no offered over a 1/3 of the class, but it still is a pain in the ass to deal with during interviews if and when it comes up.

Any advice?

Gooble, check your private messages.

I know this topic is over a year old, but I just want to add that I had a similar experience not just with large law firms, but also with my pre-law school jobs.

What do you all think about not taking Evidence in law school?  I will not be practicing in a litigation field, and while evidence is part of the bar exam, I've always been a self-learner.

YOU NEED IT!

Can you elaborate on your answer, please?   :)

2L job search / Re: Cocktail reception attire?

What about for females? I was told business attire but there is a whisper in the back of my mind of 'cocktail dress'...

No.

LOL.

Plenty of firms that have an active insurance defense practice have summer clerks that pull between $1100-1600/wk...

A couple of biglaw firms that come to mind are Cozen O'Connor and Dickstein Shapiro.  They both have active insurance litigation practices.
