So I can either work with the mediation department of the EEOC or with a solo practitioner that does workers compensation defense work.

What do you all think would be the best experience or what would look the best on a resume for trying to get a job with a big firm.

What kind of law schools do you guys go to. I see no evidence of anyone being a heavy drinker here.

Look at it this way. Alot of law school is to prove that you are smarter than the other students in your class that an employer could potentially hire. Even if you dont learn what you need to know to practice while in law school, you prove that you are smart and are capable of learning what you need to know to practice. That is what firms are looking for.

Current Law Students / Re: class of gunners? or did i miss the boat?

I think eventually you get to a point of diminishing returns. Is reading the cited cases going to help you understand the law better than you could from just that one case. Maybe slightly, but I think you would be better off spending that extra time reading a hornbook, or an examples and explanation book.

At this poing im reading the hornbook and commercial outline before I read the case. I figure that way I already know the black letter law before I go into the case. I dont spend as much time reading the casebook and I feel like I pick up more information from the case since I already know how it will be decided.

We have this one guy who feel the need to argue why his hypo creates some sort of exception to the law. Normally the professor would ask questions to the gunner, but lately the professor has just said, "sorry, thats wrong" and moves on with class. Its the best.

Actually "Judgement" is still an acceptable spelling of the word. However "Judgment" is the preferred spelling for legal purposes.

Just thought I would let you know while you are being a tool and correcting someones spelling.

Good thing spelling has nothing to do with law school performance.

Thanks Bouche Dag!!!!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Is the 5 pt drop on test day true?
« on: November 14, 2007, 08:43:58 AM »
Everyone is different. I experienced a five point drop one two tests. I was scoring around 167 and ended up with a 162. It all depends. Just practice till you are scoring above where you want to be just to be safe.
