No, I'm not one of those guys who goes on about his exams even if he did well.  I have never been so clueless, quite frankly.  Let's hope there are people in my class dumber than I am.

Feel free to console me.

I'm sure you're not the only one who feels that way.  :)

I am pretty determined to do international law. I am looking to do some kind of international private sector work, dealing with commercial disputes or corporate law (contracts, merger... that kind of stuff),between China and the States. So here are my choices, Pepperdine with a focus in dispute resolution, loyola with a focus in trial advocacy, or UNLV with a more general international law focus. Does anyone know how international commercial disputes are solved? where do they usually try a case if an american company dues a chinese firm for breach of contract? I am a newbie on this subject, so any input is greatly appreciated!

I think that complex transactions generally have clauses specifying where suits can be brought.  I think lots of them have arbitration clauses as well.

See the last sentence in my last post.

Works for me.  So you retract this previous statement: "I am of the opinion that you can't have too many law schools, or new lawyers"?  ;)

Nope, I don't retract it, I'm just informing your understanding of it in context.  You can never have to many lawyers.  But only lawyers who can pass the bar.  If you have 100% of the population able to pass a bar that is sufficiently difficult as to ensure competent legal services, then so be it!   ;D

So you're making assumptions that you know or have reason to know are untrue, is that right?

That man is balding and has no nose.  Poor guy.

Yes, I know I'm lame.  Whatever.  :P

Wobbles.

I'm not sure why I keep coming back to that.

Then raise the Bar so to speak.  J.D.s are worthless outside of their ability to help you land a job.  Bar admission should be the final arbiter, and if too many people are passing the bar and harming consumers, then raise the bar requirements.

What exactly would be a "failed lawyer?"

In my mind, one who cannot make a living practicing law.

To restate some things that nealric has already broached, the lawyer who fails ends up hurting a lot of people on his or her road to realizing that he or she cannot make a living practicing law.  I've heard too many stories about people whose lawyers screwed up their cases to believe that we should just let everybody take a shot and see how they do.  :(

Please note: this post does not express a position in terms of how we should restrict access to the profession.
