Was that lawyer supposed to be "good?"


I do know a kid that went solo after graduating because his dad's business gave him all their legal work.  It's basically his only client but it pays the bills.  I wish I had that kind of connection...  Actually, if I did I'd probably just parlay it into a bigger firm where they give you bonus based on originating work.   

Isn't that essentially just your dad continuing to pay for your life, except that now he expects work in return?

LOL @ this thread being the third result.

Glannon for Civ Pro is useful.

Torts I didn't use anything.

I had Emanuel's for Ks and ConLaw and I think they actually messed me up rather than helped me...too much useless information.

This semester all I sued was the Civ Pro E&E, didn't hit it very hard and mostly just to use the questions for review.

I had Dressler supplement for Crim, tried to read it but it basically just reiterates the MPC and common law or majority rules, which were given to us in class.

If you're going to buy anything, I'd suggest the Civ Pro E&E. Go for other things as you determine you actually need them.

^^^ That was a stupid article. All of the people he cited were women who took the age-old "drop out for kids/life balance" route. Also, his other argument is seemingly "being a lawyer sucks and doesn't let you be a talent agent or something cool." Yeah, I used to have dreams of being something cool when I was little, too.

I bet it's 10x harder to make a real living as a talent agent than as a lawyer, pal.
All of these people always complain about how "hard" and unfulfulling the law can be. I guess they'd be happier by default if they were broke and working in some stupid "creative industry." That doesn't apply to people with real jobs.

Being a truck driver is long, miserable work too. By the logic of this article, if truck drivers don't like it, they should just go into a field that's more "fun."


Sorry, but I'm really sick of people bitching about the legal profession. We've all heard the gripes. If you are unhappy, leave. If you have doubts about working in the law, then don't become a lawyer. Lawyers who are unhappy should realize that most jobs blow and are soul-sucking. Since when did everyone fall under the illusion that we're all entitled to have super-fun jobs and work at the Googleplex?

"Less is more" has become my personal approach this semester, too. We'll see if it pans out...

If I were a law professor, things would be different. Of course, that will never happen.

We can pick up our packet next week, or at the end of this week. Something like that. They make it available for longer than you're actually allowed to have it before you turn it in, so my plan is to drink/sleep for a couple days after finals ends and then trudge back to school to pick up the packet, and turn it in by the final deadline.

I couldn't do it if I had to turn around the day after my last final and start on the packet.

If you prefer the black haired look go to South America or the Carribean.. those women are far more attractive in every way than asian women.
