Current Law Students / Re: laptop docking stations
« on: June 26, 2006, 02:16:34 PM »
Delta is right, it doesn't affect the performance of your laptop at all.

However, there is another option where you wouldn't need to buy another monitor. I use a Kensington docking station and I love it. Makes packing up and leaving simple and yet gives me the desktop feel when I'm at home. K33239 is the model number.

i saw one like this at circuit city and the guy told me that using it would definately affect the performance of my laptop.

when you use yours do you have a monitor/printer/speakers/etc. plugged in through your docking station?  im not like a big gamer or anything so pretty much my usage of the computer will be Word, Internet surfing and research.  i just dont want to spend the money and have it be so slow that the picture on the monitor moves in like slow motion but i would prefer to use my larger monitor and full size mouse and keyboard while im at my place.

does anyone use a docking station? 

how does it effect the performance of you notebook? 

i have a hp notebook and would probably have to get the generic hp docking station, and didnt know how that would negatively effect the performance of my notebook. 

everyone has been talking about how unhappy lawyers are, so i thought i'd throw this in.  i was talking to a lady at a party today who was a lawyer and said she LOVED being a lawyer.  she said she didnt like law school, but loves being a lawyer.  in fact she said she felt incredibly blessed to have a legal education.  she also said she loved the fact that with a jd she could do almost anything and she also loved that. 

just thought i'd throw that in on everyones 'lawyers are miserable' pity party

smokers suck.  i have no pity for them.  smoking in general should be banned and it certainly shouldnt be allowed in any public places.

Current Law Students / what exactly is public interest law?
« on: June 23, 2006, 08:12:52 AM »
i know there are lots of things that a lawyer can do to help serve the public, but what are they?  representing charity organizations or something? but what exactly are you doing when your working in public interest? 

is your job essentially the same as a lawyer working for a firm but u support those with less money (and you make less money)? or is there a significant difference between what a lawyer at a firm does and what a public interest lawyer does. 

Current Law Students / Re: how much drinking?
« on: June 20, 2006, 06:37:21 AM »
everyone seems to want to know what the O.P. meant with this question, so i'll tell you.

i wanted to know how much i had to drink in order to fit in with everyone and how to be cool.  i'm very concerned with how everyone percieves me and i will drink as much as necessary in order to be considered one of the cool kids. 

actually it was probably more a question of free time and social events than trying to figure out how i could fit in and be cool.  i just know there seem to be a lot of social events with law schools at bars, etc.  i didnt know if these are like semi formal get togethers or if people kind of let loose at these events.  the etiquette might be different at every school, i dont know.  either way, some of the posts here, about getting loaded to be cool and fit in are just absurd.  some peoples mindsets make me laugh though.

so i hear that alot of law schools have thursday night happy hour events or some type of activity to release some of the stress of law school.  but how often do you guys drink?  do most law students take a day a week to get loaded and party?  or is it just every once in a while.

Current Law Students / first day of class
« on: June 19, 2006, 11:38:28 AM »
so for alot of people the first day is getting close, 2 months or so away! 

anyway, what are peoples experience with the first day of classes.  how did your schools orientation program run and what should people be expected for day 1 of law school.  should i bring my helmet and camoflauge to prepare for the battlefield of law school, or should i wear my flip flops and waltz in with a drink with an umbrella in it?  how nervous was everyone and was anyone out there the first one to be called on?


Current Law Students / accreditation process?
« on: June 19, 2006, 11:15:38 AM »
so what is the deal with the aba accreditation process?  anyone ever been to a school that has gone through it?  from what ive heard it is pretty straight forward, 'meet these criteria and your in' but then it makes me wonder why there are schools that arent accreditated.  i mean unless its for some type of financial reason, why couldnt a school follow a set of instructions on how to build a law school?
