General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / T Minus 4 Weeks
« on: July 17, 2012, 01:52:27 AM »
I've completed a substantial load of 0L prep - read all the E and E's for my 1st semester courses, the Acing Series, Flash Cards, Practice Exam Hypos LEEWS, Law Preview, Delaney, etc. Most would say doing this is a bad idea, others will say it'll be helpful.  Either way, doing this before law school even starts has helped me to learn more about myself.
Anyone else doing 0L before law school starts in August?

General Board / 1L Legal Writing Prep
« on: May 09, 2012, 06:45:48 PM »
There are some great posts in this forum about how to prepare for law school during 0L, but it seems they mostly discuss prep for the substantive courses.

Any advice on how to prepare for Legal Writing class during 0L?

Thank you!  :) :)

Trying to decide between Fordham Law Part Time, and Cardozo Full time. The determining factor for me is whether one school will lead to more opportunities at government agencies upon graduation. e.g. state department, state treasurer's office, FCC, etc. 

Please share your knowledgable input on the subject!   :) :)


Thanks!

Are students in the part time graded against full time students? I'm specifically curious if Fordham practices such a grading system. Thanks for the help!!

Personal Statement / Personal Statement Draft. Please read/critique!

Any critique would be much appreciated! Thank you for reading!

       My freelance career as a designer started with a successful contract negotiation during recess in the second grade. My client would receive a high quality copy of a colored pencil drawing while I would retain full copyright ownership of the original sketch and two dollars compensation. Since then I have broadened my client base and have worked as a designer on some of the most anticipated projects in the entertainment industry. Having reached a level of professional success that surpassed what I imagined for myself so early into my career, I now feel compelled to set new, far reaching goals for myself within this industry.
       There is a sense of reluctant acceptance among designers working in entertainment that plagiarism and intellectual property theft simply comes with the territory of being a digital artist in a global market.  Indeed, intellectual property theft is so common that one can easily become desensitized to its prevalence. Often I have found other designers and start up developers display work from my blog on their own professional websites. I was even deceived into developing an intellectual property that was initially stolen from independent developers. That I played a role, albeit unwittingly, in this kind of practice fueled my desire to acquire an arsenal of legal knowledge so that I may protect myself and others from this kind of exploitation.
       That people conduct such immoral business practice without consequence is not entirely surprising, given the legal systemís difficult task of keeping pace with the changes that continually transform the design field. Designers formulate ideas with software that is constantly evolving, and for this reason it is challenging to trace the origins and therefore ownership of a creative idea.  However, as someone who works at the forefront of development in this field, I believe that with an outstanding legal education I can help fill the gap between justice and creative ownership in the field of commercial design and intellectual property development. Combined with my ability to work from home as a designer, [XYZ University Law Schoolís reputation for offering one of the strongest part-time legal programs in the country has compelled me to seek admission to your school. 
       My experience working in immigration law has taught me that successful lawyering involves designing as well. A lawyer is presented with unique problems to solve and he must devise creative solutions while also conforming to a complex set of rules.  To extend my design skills into the legal field would enable me to affect the entertainment industry in ways that I believe will be truly far reaching and influential.

Are questions from an experimental section ever used in the scored sections of tests administered on the same day?

Thanks!
