Uh, I was a poster in the thread you're probably referencing, and it wasn't seen as acceptable...The guy ended up being banned.

I'm reasonably sure that your table looks familiar.  No idea where I've seen it, but I'm almost positive that I've seen it elsewhere.

many of us are planning on being perfectly content accepting a lower salary for better hours. 

what job is this exactly?

Most government jobs or small firm jobs.

Quimbee,
   I was considering submitting a few briefs to see if this was indeed a scam, because I rather needed some money.  However, based on how you're treating other posters, I'm afraid that I can't in good conscience submit anything.  If this is how you are wiling to portray yourself publicly, I can only imagine how you treat your quasi-employees.

Entertainment law is much more viable than the other two, admittedly..But the jobs are still scarce.

Best thing about being an attorney: Having a HUGE desk that you can dodge some serious questions from behind.   ;)

The programs may well be excellent, but the chance of actually getting a job in sports law is minuscule.

Sports/Entertainment/International Human Rights law are the law school equivalents of saying you want to be a princess or an astronaut when you grow up.

TITCR.  There are no jobs in this field to speak of.

Dude,
  Actually, if I recall, works that are written but not published are automatically issued copyright...That being said, the trouble is defending it, as there's nowhere to point for the proof.

Personally, I would probably try to look at firms outside of NJ/NYC if you're having trouble finding a job.  While the salaries may not be as high, your chances of finding a job are much greater.  I wouldn't go for another degree, because you're just adding up extra debt without really gaining any significant extra qualifications.

General Off-Topic Board / What is important to you, cash or a social life?

Haldo,
   As I was posting in some threads, I started thinking about the fact that many people on here are very intent on working in a bigger law firm, while many of us are planning on being perfectly content accepting a lower salary for better hours.  I wanted to start this thread to ask: Which is more important, a social life or a huge salary?  Why?

For me, I've decided to go with lower hours because I feel that, even if I am pulling huge salaries from the biglaw firms, I'll never have any opportunities to enjoy the money that I am earning.  If I spend all of my time at the office, sure, I may have 10 plasma TVs at home, but they would be sitting unused. 

Your thoughts?
