Glad to see there have been responses.  I have been so swamped in pre-law school prepping I haven't even had a chance to log on in two weeks.  lol

For the benefit of a lively debate.....So, as an incoming 1L I have read and posted thoughts about prepping the summer before and getting study aides.  Being wise in the world of law school, here are my conclusions.  Obviously one can not get casebooks or supplemental casenotes to go along with the keyed casebook until one finds out what his or her specific professor wants.  This is a given.  I also agree that reading from commercial outlines may be counter productive before 1L starts. 

That being said, I have read certain chapters from my E&E's and also have used my laws in a flash cards.  Every time I mention this, some 2L goes on a rant as if I am trying to overthrow them in the race for the top of the class (as if 1L's and 2L's were in contest for some prize or job).  Now I am not doing a 1 year PLSII prep, but I am doing a 6 week or so brief over view.  Reading the basics and beginning chapters in the E&E's and also doing LEEWS.  Personally, I have found this very helpful and informative; not to mention feeling more self confident.  I have a good general idea of the basic concepts and terms covered in the books so far.  When law school starts, I feel my understanding will only enhance.  I also have been doing practive via LEEWS and find my writing becoming more organized every time. I feel that there is nothing wrong with relaxing, yet also prepping and preparing as 1L approaches.

2L's fireback when ready.....

I had the same thought.  I wasn't making a list of judges and addresses, I was just browsing the website.  Not sure if this is odd, but I think I would rather clerk or volunteer in a judicial manner than work in a private practice.  That being said, what is an efficient way to research law firms (esp. big law firms) in your desired area.  Any specific websites?

Also, what would a typical letter to a potential employer/judge entail?  Any format that tends to be the norm?

Finding the mailing addresses for county and circuit court judges has proven a more difficult task than i once thought.  I have found the address to the main court house but thats about it; does each judge have a different mailing adress?  Or can I address all the envelopes to the main court address with just attention to the each specific judge on each different envelope.  I have also found some email addresses, but i would think that would be to informal - plus I am sure their assistants read the emails anyway.

I have a cocktail of excitement, fear, anxiety, pressure, & hope.  When you mix it 20/15/25/10/30 you have a drink I call the "0L Summer Special"

Another question that popped into my head post initial that five times fast..Anyway, is the job search done through your school or is it done on your own?  Will the college of law have postings?  Or do I just look up online and start mailing out resumes?
