Current Law Students / Re: Does Socratic Method prepare for court?

As professors like to note in defense of the socratic method: "Even if you don't become a trial lawyer, people are going to ask to think on your feet throughout your career.  Teaching this way helps you to practice that skill."

I think it certainly helps in that regard.

In Civ Pro, our professor brought in a tape of Posner and Easterbrook grilling a young attorney.  It did sounds a lot like class.

I thought the test was rather difficult, but I guess I wasn't the only one who was unsure about a lot of the answers.

I guess only the local bar associations list the official passing scores, but there are a lot of sites that have tried to compile a list of all jurisdications.  Here is one of those in case you're trying to figure out where you passed:

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?

In case you haven't found it, there is a category devoted to high school / law bound students.  It's on the pre-law discussion board here:
