Job Search / Re: Do's and Don't's for Judges

I was talking to a judge who is an alum of my school and he said that didnt like it when people called him Mr. So-and-so. He said it was more appropriate to always refer to them as judge so-and-so.

Job Search / I need job advice
« on: January 10, 2007, 07:23:05 PM »
I was recently offered a job in another state. It is with a large company that has one in-house lawyer. I would be assisting that lawyer all summer and they would pay for housing and a small salary. I would like to stay in my home city for personal reasons, but in a job market with lots of law schools, I dont know the chances of getting another offer. The career services office says that it is probably, but I probably wouldnt get paid. What would you do? (I am a 1L.)

Current Law Students / Is buying the newest edition really necessary?

I have heard some people say that you can buy an older edition cheaper and then get the newest cases online. Does this actually work? Has anyone here tried it? Like everyone else, Iím just trying to save money on books!

I meant the beta version for 2007, and its already out. I dont really know what they changes are with the beta version (mainly because I dont have the 2003 version.)

I dont know if you can still do it, but a few weeks ago you could download the 2007 beta version for free. Maybe that might be worth checking out before you buy it?

Hey everyone! Congrats on your acceptance! I am USD 1L would be happy to answer any questions. I live off campus, but I know a couple people that live on campus, so I could give you more information if you want. The best way for me to answer questions is through PM, but feel free to post questions here. PS - I moved all the way across the country and it is definitely worth it!

Incoming 1Ls / Re: E & E before school starts?

I would highly suggest not doing anything. I took a summer class which studied many major cases in multiple different areas and I think in some ways it hurt me. Don't get me wrong, it was great to learn how to take a test, but learning the material early was hard. As soon as one of professor's during the school year said something that I learned in my summer class I would weight it more because I thought it was more important and I would fill in gaps with, not wrong information, but different than what my professor wanted. You will be shocked at how much each professor will take a different spin on the material, and you don't want to hear the book in the back of your head during the exam. Just a suggestion.

Congrats to you all! I am USD 1L and love it. Let me know if you have any questions!

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: 2.8/163 - any hope?

I got into FSU with lower numbers then you. If thats any hope. I dont know if you consider these schools worthy, but USD and Miami and schools in that area would probably be good fits.
