General Board / Re: Is a secondary law journal worth the trouble?

i tend to think that it is. i think that maybe the whole "you shouldn't do it if you're not interested in the SM" thing is a lil overblown. log onto any firm website and start scrolling through the bios of partners. there is really only one thing from law school that seems to endure through the years: journal membership, whether law review or secondary. yeah, it may not pay dividends now, but there must be a reason as to why it follows attnys for the rest of their careers...

Really? I thought the only people who cared about law review were lawyers. I've had to explain to my parents the meaning of law review, and they still don't understand all the fuss.

I'm kind of into this one: http://www.brenthaven.com/catalog-expandable-trek-titanium.html

It's expandable, so big enough for everything when needed, but not permanently ginormous to make you look like an ant carrying a nibble of sandwich back to the queen. I'd get the orange, of course.

This is the bag I have. It holds a lot (yet I still always have to carry at least one casebook). People are always like "why are you carrying around so much poo?"

The worst one are the people at my school who carry BOTH a backpack and a laptop bag. Christ get a bigger bag or don't carry so much *&^%. Your cars have trunks. That's my "locker".

A lot of girls at my school have a back pack, and a laptop bag, and a huge purse. It takes up so much room in class.

I'm so unmotivtaed to work on my final project. That and I am really tempted to just get some plyers and pull my tooth out myself.

At least you don't have a biostats midterm tomorrow.


Yes, actually a do

I don't even know what biostats are but they don't sound fun

Biostats = Biostatistics = Introductory statistics class where all the examples have to do with public health issues. It's making me appreciate law school.

I would have droped the first day

It's not that hard, it's just that it's a 15-day intensive course. It's Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to Noon for three weeks. Every single day is like a week's worth of class. I'm doing this so that I don't have to take 18 credits in the fall.

If it the choice was to either work part time at a law firm or join secondary journal in a subject you're not interested in, the firm work would probably be the better.

Law Review isn't the only thing out there that can enhance the resume.

I was going to say yes, unless you have zero interest in the subject matter, because interviewers will always ask you about it and assume you have an interest in the area, and you'll take the spot of someone who actually IS interested in the field.

But some journal experience is better than no journal experience, and *looks good on the resume* trumps everything else in law school, so go for it.

One girl in my section actually carried her stuff around in a rolling suitcase.

My Brenthaven bag was the only one I saw that had a big enough laptop compartment AND plenty of room for casebooks. It's not the prettiest bag, but it's been great for me.

I'm certain that we concluded a long time ago that seersucker suits (for men & women) were the only acceptable interview attire...

One of the interns at the clinic I work at showed up in one of these. And he met with a client.
