Job Search / Where can I find information on firms?
« on: September 21, 2001, 06:35:41 AM »
I know is a good resource for getting information on law firms (salaries, hours, etc).  

See Vault: Law Firm Rankings:

Does anyone know of any similar resources?  Is there something similar that has info on medium and small firms?

Job Search / What are our options?
« on: September 20, 2001, 01:15:48 PM »
It's unlikely that we'll be working at law firms this summer.  So what are our options?  Does anyone know what a typical 1L summer is like?  What I mean to ask is... What do most 1Ls do over the summer?

Transferring / introduction to the topic

By request, here is a transferring student's board.  This is in the students section of the website because you have to be a law student before you can transfer.

This fact shouldn't limit the discussion to current law students.  Understandably, a lot of pre-law applicants are interested in transferring even before starting school.  Feel free to discuss that interest here.

Pursuing an LLM / About this board
« on: April 12, 2003, 09:22:49 AM »
I've noticed LLM students and applicants popping up in various places around the site.  While you should feel free to post anywhere, I'm creating this category to provide a specific place for LLM related discussion.

Right not we'll keep it broad.  In the future there may be boards for specific types of LLMs.

If you don't already have a law degree and you're interested in discussins admissions to JD programs, you should not post here.  Instead, visit the Pre-Law board:

Current Law Students / 1L second semester sucks!
« on: January 12, 2002, 03:02:39 PM »
I have to say - so far the second semester sucks.  Partly this is because I am out of practice (two weeks - no law) but also because the cases seem to be more confusing and the assigments more intense.  After talking to some 2Ls at my school, it sounds like 1L second semester is going to suck.  Is this the general consensus?  Are there any law schools that use the quarter system (also called tri-mester)?

I've just discoverd the "Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction" and I think it's worth a mention.  There are little quizes you can take to review, and the explanations are pretty good.  It's a good way to get some structured studying done, and I'd imagine it would be usefull in preparing for class too because it cuts through all the case confusion.

You have to get a password from your school to use it, but it is free.

Current Law Students / Prof. Resp. Exam - can you pass with no class?
« on: October 24, 2003, 03:12:22 AM »
Does anyone have any thoughts on taking the professional responsibility exam without a prep class?  If people have done this, how did you study?

Current Law Students / Law School Musicals
« on: February 21, 2003, 03:46:35 AM »
Tonight is the second night of BU's "Legal Follies" show.  It's a performance (consisting of songs and skits) about BU, law school, and the legal profession.  I've heard that Harvard and BC have similar events and I was just wondering if this is a Boston thing or a national thing.  Does your law school have a musical?

Current Law Students / law school worst case scenario
« on: March 06, 2003, 04:33:57 AM »
I think I have encountered the law student’s second worst nightmare (second only to sleeping though an exam).

One of my classmates yesterday asked me how my paper was going… what paper?

It turns out that there is a draft of a final paper due tomorrow.  The professor of the class has never issued a syllabus and, apparently, has only once announced the draft due date of the paper (or - for that matter - that a draft was going to be required).  A few weeks ago I missed the class for a job interview.  This happened to coincide with the draft due date announcement.

Before leaving for my interview I emailed to the professor to ask about, of all things, my paper topic, and to report that I would be missing class for a job interview.  When I got back the next week, I emailed the professor to ask what was assigned.  The professor replied with the next week’s reading assignment, but never mentioned the paper draft.  The due date was never mentioned again.

I wrote to the professor and explained my predicament.  My deadline has been extended one week to the Friday of spring break.  Modifying spring break plans to write my paper is certainly inconvenient, but I’m much more bothered by the fact that I had to ask for an extension on the deadline.  Perhaps this will affect my grade, perhaps not.

At the request of the Law School Admissions Council, I have removed the thread entitled "JUNE 2007 LSAT test takers first impressions THREAD".  The LSAC also asked me to remind you that "posting questions is potentially a copyright infringement."
