Job Search / Re: Insurance Defense Work

Run awaaaaay!!

haha, no, not really ... but I've clerked at an insurance defense firm for a year and a half (I'm in my last semester of law school) and I would NOT want to work here as an attorney - insurance defense seems like a billable hour nightmare.  At least at this firm - it's 2000 hr requirement for the firm, and hours get kicked back ALL the time!  It seems really stressful since the clients are pretty sophisticated.

Let's bring this thread back to life!  I've been obsessively reading the Warriors series - I know ... it's a series for 8-14 year olds, but it's really entertaining :D  I love animal fantasy/fiction, so yay!  If you like Watership Down, Redwall, or Tailchaser's Song ... then I highly recommend Erin Hunter's Warriors and Seekers series.  READ THEM!  Also, light, young adult fiction is perfect for the harried law student  :D

You want your books - sometimes when profs call on you they want you to read from the text or look up something on a specific page - they refer to things you may not have read, etc.

Briefing alone is not sufficient ... besides - you'll suck at briefing and write down the wrong things at first.

Current Law Students / Studying for the bar?

How does this actually work?  I just finished my first year of LS, and I'm curious for scheduling of life purposes!

It seems that most people don't study until about a week after spring exams of their 3rd year - they graduate, and then start barbri and study until the bar (which is mid-july, yes?)  So mid may - mid july is bar time?  It's stressful and hard, but it's short and then over, right?

I've also heard of ppl taking it more than once - do they have to wait a year to take it again each time?

I'm talking Ohio here, if that helps!

Doesn't your school offer health insurance?

Take all of those "guides to law school" books w/ a grain of salt - they were definitely all written by gunners who didn't have lives (ever - but especially in law school).  Those books will just scare you into thinking you need to study 8 hours a day.  You can read them, and some of the tips/etc are helpful, but don't get overwhelmed.

I mean ... I probably was in the bottom 20% as far as "time spent studying" goes ... but grade-wise I'm in the top 30% ... go figure.

Get the crunchtime for property - I should have gotten it and used it all semester instead of just the couple weeks before the exam - it lays everything out SO simply.
