Both sides bring up almost equally compelling points. WAR= destruction of human life. And the method of torture is an inhumane act absent of ethics.

You wanna know what you 0Ls really need to learn how to do?  You all need to learn how to dress.  I swear to god that most of you kids are clueless about how to wear a suit, or even a blazer or sports coat.

So, yeah, learn how to dress ya freakin' hippies.
Also take up tobacco pipe smoking.  That will set you apart in a good way.


Lol I will definetly keep this in mind! I hope San Diego has a Mens Warehouse.....

I always heard to not study up before school, and so I didn't, but I wish I had. Familiarizing yourself with some basic terms and over-arching concepts in all of your subjects for your first semester will come in handy.



NINJA1, any particular methods/tools/resources you would care to elaborate on that may help to initaite us 0L's into the basic terms and over-arching concepts?! gracias!

I'd say just read up on them a bit. The Wikipedia articles on each subject would probably be a pretty good primer. It's not necessary that you have a total mastery of things, just have a general idea of how they flow and what some important terms and concepts are. That was probably one of the hardest parts of first semester, trying to understand the basic concepts and building out from there. If you come armed with the basic concepts, I'd bet you'd be in pretty good shape. That would explain why ex-paralegals and such usually have a pretty decent handle on things.






Thanks for the advice! so wikipedia torts, contracts, civ pro, crim pro......anything else above and beyond this you would recommend brushing up on, as far as terms go?

Yeah.  Chapman has been the only legit game in the OC for a while.  No more.  Our friend Erwin will see to that.

Outside of the OC you've got San Diego to the south, with three schools, and then to the north is Los Angeles with schools like USC, UCLA, Pepperdine, Loyola etc etc etc.

Is it a bad school?  No, of course not.  Would I personally go there?  No, I don't see a strong niche for it anymore.  I could be wrong in my assessment, but yeah, I wouldn't go to Chapman.




thats interesting. OC seems like a desirable place to live , so I can see how graduates from NorCal and SoCal could want to practice in OC. But why, in your opinion, is this trend occuring now?

In this market, any money is better than none.
USF would be my call.
Southerwestern second.

I don't think there's anything that would make me choose Chapman for law school anymore (Not that it's a bad school, I just wouldn't go there).




care to explain why you woudlnt attend Chapman?!
