General Board / Re: How Realistic is the book One L?

my experience was vary dissimilar to 1-L.

cultures vary from school to school, but i doubt any law school today is like the book.

this is not to say that individual students do not make law school very stressful for themselves. some do. most don't.

National Lawyers Guild or American Constitution Society...which has more street cred?

NLG, but possibly because it has much older pedigree. the NLG is 70 years old. it helped integrate the legal profession while the ABA was segregated, flipped off mccarthy, and litigated historic cases like goldberg v. kelly. the ACS has only been around about 5 years.

also, the NLG is more militant, therefore more credible.

yeah, she has lots of recommendations for doing things other than improving your grades. it looks to me like it's a good book for someone who isn't near the top of the class and doesn't have good prospects of graduating near the top. at that point, it becomes useful, i suppose, to distinguish yourself from the other people not near the top, and that's where all the recommended activities come in handy.

i like it because it described a lot of the job search process.

2L job search / law job guides

can anyone recommend a guide to legal employment that has good discussion of 2L summers? discussion of public interest work would be a plus. for my 1L summer i just went with the flow, but i feel like i need to be more strategic about my 2L summer job search. thanks.

If he'd answered in any way affirmative, he'd have been force to get married to someone of the same sex prior to being sworn in, I'm sure.

By the same reasoning, if you get an essay question about being a defense attorney in a murder trial, I'm sure you have to be in favor of murder to get that one right.

wouldn't he have to gay-marry anyway, being as he lives in massachusetts?
