exactly the piece of paper is just a piece of paper. The states alone vary a lot in legal differences.
In my opinion it shouldn't matter if you have only a GED and a certificate of completion at AA, if you can pass the MPRE and the Bar, then you should be allowed to practice.

That makes sense. I've always wondered how, even with an LLM, a foreign-educated attorney could pass the bar considering the difference in legal systems and laws, while actually knowing enough to practice law.

They probably take BarBri/Kaplan classes just like all Americans do to pass the bar

Pre-Law in high school / Re: Doing some law-related work??

Lots of the free clinics bring in undergrad students to helpout. Don't expect to do too much paralegal work(they normally reserve that for JD students) but you can still do the secretary and legwork for them. It might not matter on your lawschool resume very much but it will look good when you apply for a legal intership in your 2L(especially if its at the same place and they know and like you already)

Yes, you are FAR too clever for all us to see through the veil that you actually want us to see though....... :P

Placing "your card" on the side and then only posting in areas that you think will have people the most interested in it.......yeah most of us took marketing in undergrad too there guy, it might not be enough to get you disbarred but its still sad. :'(

The post actually offered her general advice that will hopefully help her make a good decision (as we have in other posts).  Sorry if that offends you.

Law School Applications / Re: 2.7 undergrad GPA 3.4 MS and 3.7 PhD LSAT 142

Did you check out the link I posted? It is just of yahoo searching "Patent bar prep" but there are a ton including Kaplan and Barbri which is the same company that most lawstudents use to prep for the regular bar and lsat.

Good point in that reference. Thats why it confuses me how (as far as I know all) states now no longer let someone who took the California online JD take the bar in their state if they take an ABA approved LLM after it. They california online schools are better than many foreign countries in person ones, plus I think it pretty stupid how a bunch of people with peeon JD's (people who would flunk out day one of an LLM) sit in a little group in an office and go "No, that guy who has proven he is smarter than me knows less than me....." :P

Dang, you really are trying to advertise your sales all over this board aren't you? Is it really that hard out there that even the "elite" Harvard grads can't find any real clients and have to resort to trying to sell lsat prep over the internet in a (very poorly) attempted disguise?

Nerderic might want to take note of that to answer a little debate he and I have been having as of late....... ::)

It really comes down to the instructor.  His/her knowledge and experience is key.  Unless you're very effective at teaching yourself information, a quality instructor is critical.  In addition, another consideration is cost.  Traditional courses cost $1200.  There are other options out there for less and that are just as, if not more, effective.  I recommend doing some research before defaulting to a traditional course.  A traditional course is great for some people, but not great for others.  It really depends on what you need and what a specific course offers. 

Hope that helps!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: The "most effective" logic game strategies?
« on: December 21, 2010, 12:17:12 PM »
You sure are trying to push your salesitem all over this board aren't you?

There really aren't any "tricks" to Logic Games (nor are there tricks to any LSAT questions).  The Logic Games, and the LSAT as a whole, tests logical principles.  The more you know and understand those principles, the more likely you will do well on the exam. 

As for Logic Games, specifically, here are two tips that should help you:

1) The most critical thing you need to do is diagram the rules provided and then use those diagrams to map out the different scenarios in the questions and answers.  Proceeding through these games visually is the best and most effective way to do well on this section.

2) It's not what you know (or what's provided), but WHAT YOU CAN FIND OUT.  By this, I mean that you can often take some of the rules provided (S comes before N) (N comes before G) and combine them (i.e., S comes before G) to reach new rules.  The more effectively you can do that when you initially diagram the game, the quicker you'll be able to answer the questions.  If that's a "trick," then so be it.  But it's really contingent on your ability to use deductive reasoning. 



Hope that helps.

Isn't it against the rules of Professional Procedure to advertise on here for your lawfirm anyways? Don't people get disbarred for that type of stuff?

How does his lsat/gpa impact if he thinks a religion is an occult?

You are probally one of those idiots who thinks that if a GED dropout came up to you and said "dude your wife is a whore, she just sucked my male private part for a bump of crack" You'd say "shutup, you don't know anything about anything, now please roll out of my bed so I can lay next to my wife and wipe the powdered donut off her nose and maple syrup off her mouth....."

Law School Applications / Re: LAW SCHOOL RESUME'
« on: December 21, 2010, 11:21:33 AM »
Honestly, just don't overthink it. They mostly just care about your GPA and LSAT score. Have you ever heard a Prof tell you "You already have an A dont talk yourself down to a B?" Well, its like that. If you have the GPA and LSAT that they want, the resume is just to confirm you are not a serial killer in training. Now, if you actually do have badstuff you have to explain(academic probation, previous job as formentioned serial killer,etc) then yeah you will need to sugar coat it, but even then they can smell BS from a mile away so just be honest and don't lie.

You should be ok.
