Make friends with a lawyer or someone who worked as a paralegal before law school and have them teach you how to Bluebook. At my school we learned enough about the Bluebook to cite cases and statutes for memos/briefs, but not enough for cite checking.

If you wait until the exercise is out to get help it'll be an honor code violation (or it should be).

Am I the only one offended that they're already making an issue out of the fact that SP didn't have an abortion when she found out that her kid would probably have Down's Syndrome?

I doubt Monday morning would be a problem.  Let's be realistic here.  If these are BIGLAW firms, odds are, many of the people you're meeting with spent a chunk of their weekend working anyway.  Mondays sort of loose their dreadfulness when you no longer get to play and screw around for a full 48 hours on the weekend.

This makes me sad...


When are we gonna get a VEEP announcement? The NYT and MSNBC had me all excited thinking we were gonna get one today...

How old is too old to be on Facebook? I just got a friend request from an uncle. Not really even an uncle, just a guy that used to be married to my aunt. Kinda weird.  ???

I buy all mine through the bookstore b/c they usually have the best price and I know I'm getting the right edition. I prefer new books, and there isn't usually a big variance in the price of new casebooks. The B&N 20% off deal could be pretty good, but  a lot times they didn't have the most recent edition.

I was afraid of ordering used books online b/c I didn't know if they'd ship in times for classes. Profs at my school tend not to tell you what books to order until a week and half before classes start.

Just got back from my birthday party, and it's dawned on me that I'm getting to be the age where I'd rather spend my birthday eating a lot than drinking a lot.

Buy a cheapo paperback edition. The Westlaw version is a pain in the ASS to use. The profs appreciate it when you look things up in the cases that you don't understand, so you don't look like a lazy person when they ask about it.

What school supplies do you guys use during law school. Anything special? Giant three ring binders etc? I also have a class where laptops are not allowed. Sucks.

Highlighters highlighters highlighters! And sticky flag thingies. And folders for all the worthless LRW handouts.
