General Board / Re: lawyers and white shirts
« on: May 07, 2007, 01:00:43 AM »
I wear blue shirts all the time. I've even worn a lavender with a gray suit before. looked awesome. In my opinion, if you know how to do colors well, then do it. You will stand out a bit and look more confident than the standard white shirt and red tie crowd. I have gotten SEVERAL compliments about my dress and comments such as the one I just said. My fav. interview suit is a dark charcoal gray with thin alternating pinstripes of cream and a burnt orange/copper color. I wear it with a medium blue shirt and a tie that has some a little bit of blue, little bit of cream, and that same burnt orange/copper color.

Congrats! I don't go there. I go to Michigan State, so I'm your neighbor. Couldn't tell you much about the school....but the building and library sure seem very nice. Good luck.

I don't know what school you'd like to go to, but if you want to do litigation, check out Michigan State. They have a trial practice program. It is taught by practicing lawyers. You learn ho to interview clients, take depositions, and all the other real-world stuff you do when you have a job. You also spend 2 semesters actually at trial. You are the lead attorney. Real judges sit in and there is a real jury and witnesses, and all that jive.
Also, it isn't hard to get a public defender externship. Not sure about prosecutor, but I wouldn't imagine it is that much harder.

I don't see any negligence here. He intended to shoot the balloon. All the affected people would have battery claims against him. Transfered intent.......

I hafta be honest, I'm scared for classes haha. After reading some of this stuff I'm a bit nervous that I will work super hard for naught. Oh well, we will see I guess.

Awesome. That was from Michigan State's Research and Writing class. Hopefully all of the classes are like that.
