Yeah, I guess 4 just seems like a lot to me because I don't plan on having any.

Well if you don't plan on having any, what doesn't seem like a lot?

Tonigh has been rough. My best friend is contemplating breaking up with her bf and hanging out with a complete a-hole that has treated her like crap. So I am trying to be the good friend but really hope she stays away from the a-hole.

That's lousy.  :(

Most of those nice $150,000+ starting salaries would vanish, simply because of the laws of supply and demand.

This is simply not true.  There's a huge supply of new lawyers each year, but they haven't done anything to drive down the starting salary at the big firms.  Lawyers are simply not fungible in all instances.

And I bet there are tons of partners at big firms who would love to replace some of their associates with outsourced labor from India.  More profit for them.

1L job search / Re: Judicial Internship at District Court or RA?

I was initially going to work both as a part-time, but the judge is requiring me to work at least 4 days a week.  So, it seems like I would need to choose between the two.

I have a judicial internship lined up at District Court of N.J., and also a research assistant position with a professor who is going to do research on corporate/employment law.  Corporate law is where I want to go into eventually.

Do I take the judicial internship or RA? Would it make such a big difference when I try to interview for a 2L summer job?

I think the conventional wisdom is that 1L jobs don't make a big difference in terms of how you do in finding a 2L job.  I think the important thing is that you're able to speak intelligently about your 1L summer experience during interviews.

Personally, I think the internship sounds more interesting, but that's just my opinion.

Good luck!  :)

All lawyers (or, more precisely, the firms they work for) have a vested interest in making sure as few new competitors come into the market as possible.

I disagree, because new lawyers entering with a market will only compete with some existing lawyers but not others.  New law school graduates, for example, will be competing with associates, but not necessarily with partners.

It's true.  I'm far too busy being irresponsible.

So I guess we can't tease bl about what CTl looks like now that he's rocking the self 'tar.

That said, she probably didn't assume that was really him.  I mean, even for a man that's romantically linked to Amp, that 'tar still seems a little too gay.

I was never interested anyway.  :P

I hope so too.  Good luck!  :)

Legislatures are full of lawyers, and they'll never let the legal profession to open up to a real level of competition, especially from people overseas. 

Problem with this: you assume that the interests of all domestic lawyers are aligned.

My practice tests were within a 2 point band for the month or so before the test.  My actual score was one point below that band.

Worst-case, about $100k. I'm crossing my fingers that the market will be kind to me and give me juicy 2L SA position (we can all dream, right?), though, which would lower my debt slightly.

$500K (worst case)  8)
Ask me why I don't care...

OK, I'll bite. Why?

Oh, it won't be a problem just as soon as a couple of aged family members kick the bucket  8)

LOL.  You're terrible.  :D
