I would give an explaination of law and ecomonics, but that wouldn't be an efficient use of my time.

The justification for prohibiting smoking is the health and safety of the workers, not the patrons. Thats why it can apply to both diners and bars.

Thats actually not that bad. Bigger firms have a lot more decisions to make and alot more people to approve them.

I really don't like school and tier bashing, and I think Hofstra is a great school, but I would try to tranfer up if I were you especially if you can get back into a top 5 school. There are only a few schools were the name makes an absolute difference, ant it is probably the top eight or so, but especailly the top 5.

Granted, you will probably get a great job coming from Hofstra (or pretty much any school of you work at it), but don't handcuff yourself 20 or so years down the road, if say you want to be a judge, professor, or some sort of appointed high level position. The big name schools have a definate impact on those types of opportunities, just look at Harrieit Miers. One (of many) complaints about here was that she was not intellectually qualified. People probably would not have questioned her intellect as much if she was another Yale Grad.

2L job search / Re: State Attorney General's office

I worked at as state's AG's civil dept. and at a large firm. I found a firm to much more interesting. The AG was a little to laid back and kind of boring. The hours were nice though, I was out by 4:30pm pretty much everyday.

At the firm there was always alot going on, an it was much more exciting.

The AG was a state angeny so every job hadf to be posted beforte domeone was hired. Also, you couldn'e apply until you passed the bar, so you couldn't get an offer right after a summer clerkship. The did hire students on a hourly basis before they got their bar results, but it varies year by year depending on funding.

Salary for state AG was public record. I think it was 47K.

Your library should have a forms book, Like AmJur or westlaw.

I think lexis and westlaw have these online too.

If you signed up early for bar/bri, they have a review course that I found pretty helpful. I used Emmanuels as well. I hated future interests also. It is an arcane practice that should be abolished, and everything passed down in fee simple absolute.
