Current Law Students / Re: Moot Court vs. Journal?

Main journal first.

Moot Court if you KNOW you want to do litigation.

Secondary journal if you don't care--it's probably less work than MC.

Yep.  1) Law Review; 2) Moot court or secondary.

Above 3.0? Include.  But don't list your rank.

Tough call.  Probably not that many ABA accredited schools that will accept you and be worth the full tuition.

Do you want to work in Texas (judging from your screen name)?  What type of work do you want to do?

You should ask your financial aid department.  But schools tend to use scholarship money for recruiting students rather than retaining them.

No scholarship at AU, and no, nothing stops me from contacting other people.  But law rev at gulc is a question mark. 

Ah, I misunderstood about LR.  Tough call.  You probably can't go wrong.

Any scholarship to AU?

Tough choice.  I would probably not transfer to GULC, but law review at GULC is tempting.  You are most likely going to get a biglaw gig with law review at GULC.  I don't think you can go wrong.  With the lottery system, are you precluded from contacting employers outside the lottery?  If you get lotteried out of a firm, is there anything to stop you from calling up the firm and interviewing 15 blocks away rather than on campus?

Um... westlaw?  Or you could just ask your employer for a sample, which is much better.

Regardless of grading, a clinic would likely look much better to employers and provide you with more real-world experience than some random business-type doctrinal class.  You can learn corporate tax by reading a 30-page outline.  You can't learn life experience by reading a book or being lectured to.

Current Law Students / Re: Potential causes of action

I don't know whether the company was injured or not. Maybe it made it harder for the company to resolve its case with the franchisee. Maybe the compnay had to hire tech experts to demonstrate that its employees didn't send the email. Though the email was sent to the franchisee (a provate party), maybe the (untrue) word got out to the public. I really don't know.

I don't know a lot about torts. However, the following potential causes of action come to mind:

Tortious interference with business relationships
Trespass to Chattels

Those seem like good claims to start with.  I really have no idea.  I would also want to research some federal law to see if there is any distinctly federal cause of action.

When in doubt, allege both negligent and intentional causes of action.
