Job Search / Re: Finding jobs in smaller firms (1L, 2L, post grad)
« on: May 10, 2009, 08:15:44 PM »
As for having them hire you, I would search for some of Matthies' threads on the matter. It's mostly about networking.

see generally http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,4013253.msg5153383.html#msg5153383

This is a forum, not a journal article worthy of bluebooking... feminine hygiene product.

i hope this was a typo --> "heard some friends say they wish they would of attened business school instead"

Would HAVE

sorry but this is one of my pet peeves

Don't forget to mention the random capitalization, misspellings, and improper use of commas and semicolons.

Current Law Students / Re: summer offer

How do you get notified with an summer position offer?

With your grammar skills, I don't think you need to worry about a summer offer.

I did not use supplements. Everything you need to know for the exam will be covered in the casebook and class discussions. I finished 2nd in my class. The teacher wants you to recite the law and use analysis they way he/she taught you in class. Just my $0.02.

Enjoy the time for as long as you can - being a 1L, although interesting, is by no means enjoyable.

Transferring / Re: stay at T4 v. Transfer to T1
« on: July 03, 2007, 01:19:45 PM »
Thanks for the response. I did do well in LRW - in fact LRW had a moot court component where I won for best written trial brief.

I agree the decision is not easy. $$ does talk, however it's not the only factor to consider.

Thanks again.

Transferring / stay at T4 v. Transfer to T1
« on: July 03, 2007, 12:44:49 PM »
Here's my situation. I've done well at a T4 in MA. I'm 2nd in the class and have some academic awards. I anticipate getting a decent scholarship as a result. I will be on law review should I chose to stay.

I've been accepted at a T1 in CT, the state I currently reside in and plan to work in post graduation. I will obviously lose the chance at LR, lose my class standing, and it's unknown at the moment what the economic repercussions will be as I haven't received any scholarship info from the T4 as of yet, but pre-scholarship cost of attending the T1 would save me $10K a year as I'd be eligible for instate tuition.

The T4 is well respected in CT, however the T1 does have an advantage as its local. The larger firms in the area hire from both schools, however the T1 has a larger representation in these firms.

I plan to talk to some local attorneys about my situation, but what do you guys think? What would you do in my shoes? What do you see as the pro's and con's here?

Current Law Students / T4 to UCONN transfer
« on: June 28, 2007, 12:38:47 PM »
I realize that this post is under 'transfers' too, but this board gets more traffic.

I finished second in my T4 class and have applied to UCONN Law. Nothing special about me other than the fact that I won for best trial brief in our LRW moot court assignment.

Any stories or information from recent UCONN transfers?

What school you transferred from and class rank.
