I currently go to a HBCU law school.

I think most on here will tell you to go the best school you can get into. And I agree.

Law school and everything in it is about trying to maximize your job opportunities.

So without sounding so cynical, gently take off your rose-colored glasses and see what the best school you can get into is.


Disagree. While the furor over getting a good job right out of law school is important, there are other considerations. The view you take is short-sighted and a bit overly simplistic.

I think Howard would be a great law school to choose over even some of the better law schools if you're from a heavy black area and want to go into politics.

I'd also say go to Howard if you're probably smarter than most of the people there. Look, Howard is going to give the top of the class the same or better opps as the kids at the most elite institutions. I turned down harvard (UG) to go to howard using the same rationale (plus I didn't wanna pay for school) and it worked out fine.

Here's a situation where going to the best school probably hurts the guy. Say he gets into BC and Howard. At Howard his LSAT GPA range suggests he'll be in the top 10% whereas he'll probably only be in the middle of the class at BC. BC is a "better" law school, but he'll probably have more opportunities at Howard.

I didn't realize HUSL meant Howard. That day I was probably skimming instead of reading.

I just thought the OP wanted to go to ANY HBCU Law school.

If the OP wants to go to Howard, then I concur with everything you just said above.

My bad OP.

To me Howard is the exception.

Black Law Student Discussion Board / Practicing in NYC…
« on: July 10, 2008, 04:20:13 PM »
Hey people…

I didn’t realize how many members here either practice or attend school in New York.

I need some help…

I already contacted Burning Sands and he has already given me help.  But I also wanted some other views.

I have some general questions and ANY response or comment would be appreciated.

What type of advice would you give someone that graduated from a school outside NY, who wants to practice in New York City?

Besides the New York City Law Department, what other government entity opportunities are available?

Anything else that you think I would find helpful…

Hey guys I need some help in this class.

I actually need some names of good supplements with great questions to get a handle on the subject.

General Board / Who should I choose the Easy/Hard Teacher?
« on: July 26, 2007, 10:53:54 PM »
I am about to be 2L at a Florida school.

I am in a dilemma in picking a teacher for my Business Organizations/Entities course (Agency, Partnership, LLC and Corporations).

Its a 4 Credit Hour Class along with Evidence, Pro. Responsibility, Con. Law II and Crim. Law. All together that is 16 credit.

I'm also on the Moot Court Board, I have to sign up for a class along with that and that is 1 credit.

I am COMPETING in the write competition for Law Review and hopefully I make it. But who knows.

I am also clerking during the year. 10 hours a week.

I am also apart of SBA.

So the question is should I take a Professor well in depth of Bus. Org. but her tests are more difficult or should I  take a Professor who is less demanding and I know I can get a BETTER grade in.

I am anxious to see the responses.
