If you see people banned or shouted down at TLS, send them a PM to invite them here. The information is good, with a dose of realism. Only the traffic is lacking, and that's easily fixed.

What you studied in undergrad likely isn't going to have any impact on what you choose to study in law school. Your first year is going to be packed with the same classes everyone else takes. While you may have had an interest in one area in undergrad, that will almost certainly change by the end of 1L. Only one of many people I've known who had a plan going into 1L ended up sticking to the plan, and that's because she had connections in a highly specialized area of law where connections are key. For example, one was set on criminal law and ended up studying communications law. It's all about what strikes your interest, and anything related to the law that you were exposed to in undergrad really isn't going to give you enough of a taste to really know.

As far as IP law: yeah, hard sciences are it. The patent bar isn't even an option unless you have a strong background in the sciences. While you can take the patent bar with a certain number of credits in engineering/science/technology, getting a job with an IP firm is another matter. Realistically, we're talking a Masters in Engineering or Computer Science or a Ph.D in Bio or Chemistry.

So many of his awesome posts were deleted. Matthies, I'll miss your humor, your guidance, your fixations and your bitterness.

Oh, and Exile is unlocked now.

This thread is not turning into another Julie/BW shitfest. No. Just no.

Teenagers get horny and stupid. We all know that. No secret.
What's your point? That it's ok to molest kids? Can someone ban this freak and lock this thread already?

Done and done.

Not just Exile, I'm afraid.

If TLS is too harsh for you, you'll definitely want to steer clear of AutoAdmit/XOXOHTH.

Added hilarity from a minimum post count on the company's forums before you can apply for a job. :D

They would start after I completed law school.

How do you plan to make loan payments? How do you plan to study for the bar ten years after leaving law school, as a stay-at-home parent? How do you plan to find a job when employers tend to focus on, if not current students, recent graduates?

Students who moved to go to college and don't want to change their state of residence. It's not just "a state ID," it's "that state's ID." Here, since you obviously skipped the last link I posted, let me provide you another helpful link: click here

What college student (who is a citzen) does NOT have a state ID? Heck, you need one to do virtually anything school related or otherwise. How do you factor college students into that mix?

Yes. Voter ID laws disproportionately affect minorities, the elderly and college students. Coincidentally, all blocs of Democratic voters. Placing barriers to voting--just like poll taxes and literacy tests--are historically a means to limit the  number of people who aren't going to vote for "your guy." Same plays from the same play book.

Also: it's a non-solution looking for a problem.

How? By requiring photo ID?

they seem want keep people from voting.
