This enrages me that I can't print them out and look over them before I pay for it and actually submit in on LSAC. Is there any other way to be able to print out an app for a school with out paying anything yet?

Where should I go next fall? / Good school for Oil & Gas law
« on: September 21, 2010, 12:27:30 AM »
I am currently a runner for an oil and gas law firm and I am interested in maybe going into that field based on what little I am exposed to of it by the attorneys as well as my listening to some continuing education in the field. I know that UT Law in Austin has several class offerings in oil and gas law and I believe that UH does as well. Does anyone else know of any programs that are strong in oil and gas law or have good placement into firms that specialize in that area? Also for wind energy law? class offerings for wind?

LSAC and LSDAS / What would happen if you did this?
« on: August 17, 2010, 10:16:47 PM »
I read somewhere about a guy who did not select an ethnicity on his LSAC profile. He also listed his participation in several University groups and clubs that were typically predominantly african-american, some with "black" and "african-american" in the title, that he did legitimately join and participate in at least somewhat. The guy was caucasian, and I reckon that his intent was to dupe law school admissions committees into thinking that he was black. Would that increase your chances of admittance at many law schools, and would it be considered unethical to do if your not black or african-american. He did not technically do anything dishonest by joining extracurricular groups and not selecting an ethnicity on LSAC alone.

Specifically in regard to energy law, which i hear is very popular lately, are there certain things that employers like to see in the realm of past experience? I know that IP practice often requires, or at least is preferred, to have had engineering or science. makes me think that energy law practice might be best sought with an environmental studies degree or something, healthcare law; same vein, perhaps biology or chemistry. i guess what i want to know is how much does all of that matter, do some firms only hire new JD grads with certain undergraduate degrees, or does i.e. taking a lot of energy law classes, maybe oil and gas related, in law school suffice for experiences. maybe also what are some fields of law that are less reliant on undergraduate studies; maybe something that you can begin to look at in law school for the first time, become interested, and also have a chance and landing a great job, assuming you make good grades and participate in relevant clinics....

General Board / Art Law in big firms

Is anyone or does anyone know an art lawyer in a very large firm. does this job even exist at that scale. if it does, is it a very competitive position like some are in corporate law in large firms.
