Current Law Students / Re: lawyers and white shirts
« on: May 06, 2007, 10:00:43 PM »
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.

What does this mean exactly?
<<<As stated in the Faculty Policy Manual, the same standard grading curve that applies to upperlevel
courses also applies to RWA:30% A; 40% B; 30% C; 0% D & F,with an allowable
variation of 10%. Your grade for RWA II will be based on the total number of points that you
have earned. As noted in the RWA Program Student Policies handout, points are assigned for
the Spring Semester on the following basis:>>>

Job Search / Re: most coveted 1L summer jobs?

The lawyers I know say govt. jobs are the best. Biglaw/Midlaw and stuff like that doesn't get your hands dirty. If you work for the DA you'll be shoveling *&^% with your barehands. They like to see a prospect with some govt. experience, it indicates they've actually done some hands on stuff.
