Hey Ryan,

I met with a Hofstra grad attorney today -- Elder Law (I'm taking care of some things for my parents).  Anyway, she was so much more on the ball than the NYU grad attorney my parents were using.  She found all kinds of mistakes in the documents he drew up that now have to be fixed.  So much for a Tier 1 education.

He was great - a true original.  There will never be another like him.

I would like to gain a year or two of experience at a small/medium firm, then go solo.  Ideally, I'd like to find a few lawyers who want to form an "of counsel" arrangement where I can maintain my own practice but share office space and staff.

Yipes!!  We're in BIG trouble.  Seriously, I don't think it's a good idea to look at these things at this point.

I see that the U.S. just bent to the wishes of the French and Germans on the U.N. Iraq Resolution. Gee, isn't that called "flip flop", that the Republicans always accuse Kerry of?
Just think, if Bush had been willing to compromise with the Allies before the start of the war, perhaps we wouldn't have lost so many American lives. It just shows you the folly of being stubborn and unyielding just to appear Texas macho tough. In the end, his lack of negotiating in a diplomatic way, which is what Kerry has been proposing all along, has caused him in the end to look foolish and might possibly cost him the election, not to mention the loss of lives.
But he can leave the White House carrying his Bible saying that, "God spoke to me and told me that I had chosen the right course". Right away. I'm sure that God also told him to cut taxes and I'm absolutely positive that God told him to do things that would hurt the environment, for which he was the Creator. Yeah sure.
Instead of talking to God George, why don't you start by using common sense and negotiate in the fine art of diplomacy. But if you are not intellectually suited for the job, and didn't really want the presidency and simply got pushed into the whole election thing and then when Gore got more votes then you, you had a silent sigh of relief. You thought "YES! I can finally go home to Texas and put on my jeans and go out with my old hunting dog cutting brush", you're stunned to learn that the Republican dominated Supreme Court has just annointed you with the crown and throne of Presidency. "Shucks, what do I do now!"
"I'm screwed! I better go out and surround myself with some bright people that can think for me. I don't think they'll try to brainwash me with their own agenda, do you?"
Guess what, they did!

Being Irish Catholic, my Catholicism is more matter of ancestry than a personal choice.  I know a lot of liberal Catholics, too, but it is becomming harder and harder to defend the church's positions.  If I were not born into Catholicism, I doubt if I would choose it voluntarily.

Recently converted to Roman Catholicism after many years as a Roaming Protestant

I find that interesting considering your liberal views on gay marriage. 

I took mine in New York.  Everyone had to put their cell phones on a desk at the front of the room, so there was a pile of about 25 cell phones on the desk.  You might want to either make sure it's labelled or just leave it in your car during the test.

Incoming 1Ls / Any recommendations for legal philosophy books?
« on: June 07, 2004, 02:42:37 PM »
I know the subject of books has been discussed a lot.  I've read all the "get ready for law school" books I care to.  Can anyone recommend books specifically on legal philosophy?
