General Off-Topic Board / Getting up in the morning
« on: January 13, 2005, 06:44:53 PM »
How the @#!* do you people do it?? I mean, its not like I oversleep or anything. I wake up on time and I just LIE there cause I'm too lazy I guess to get up. I need motivation. I need something to wake up to.

Where should I go next fall? / Practicing law in other countries
« on: December 03, 2004, 08:55:06 PM »
Okkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkay now I'm new to this, but what if I want to keep my options open? If I want to practice law in the Middle East, or Latin America, or Europe, or the US, should I go to a law school in that country?

I mean, is it possible to be a lawyer in, say, Egypt...with a degree from an American law school? Do people do this?

Where can I find out more about this?

Studying for the LSAT / Does reading novels help?
« on: November 02, 2004, 08:53:26 PM »
....my sex drive?

just kidding lol

I've hated reading for most of my life but I've recently been drawn to books by John Grisham...The Street Lawyer was the best booke EVAR and I'm reading The Partner right now.

ANYWHOO, my question is will all this reading help me on the LSAT. I mean, it sounds obvious...but I feel like I SHOULD be spending my time reading other stuff....like....I don't know...more "intellectually challenging" things or something???  ???

Am I making any sense at all?? ha!

BTW what are some other good authors like John grisham? I don't know whether its his writing that's making me like readign so much or its because he's writing about the law profession which I'm interested in....

Law School Applications / I hate assholes and I want to be a lawyer?
« on: June 18, 2004, 11:16:00 AM »
Im a second-year undergraduate student contemplating law school. The thing is, I like being nice. I like helping people. Everything I do is about helping people...I'm a volunteer firefighter, american red cross, you name it. Thats just the person I am. I hate assholes with a passion. They disgust me.

f-ing bastards.

Sorry...but anyways...

It seems as if everywhere I go lawyers have this image of being big assholes.

Now from my common sense I'm figuring this "image" comes primarily from prosecutors and the "BIG CORPORATE" lawyers from Harvard (nothing against harvard! but you see what Im saying?) and such who are making millions for huge malpractice suits against doctors, etc.

Which other specific areas in law don't have this "a-hole image"? Are there any areas out there where I can become involved in a client's life and help them with their problem, their life?

Law facinates me, so this is something I want to do.

There are some independent lawyers and partner lawyers (?) I personally know who have their own offices and buildings and seem to be happy. Which areas are those??

Thanks so much
