General Board / Re: Chances at a federal judicial internship?
« on: November 28, 2009, 02:30:20 PM »
Are you talking about during the school year, or over the summer?

I got one during the school year through my school's externship application program.  Though only one of the seven district judges in the city took applications, so-- I'd imagine it's rare.

If you're looking for a summer internship, focus on your home market in a big way; mail.

Bulleit

I've got a buddy who works for Diageo in NYC.  He swims in this stuff.  It's pretty good.

Forgot to mention that GULC was ED.

Not by a mile.

Ah, figured it out.

Why, exactly, are you stressed?

Already covered. We did Twombly and Iqbal both. I definitely spaced out in Iqbal because my notes say as much. "Missed a shitload; get this from someone else."

They're the same thing (i.e., nothing, because plausibility is meaningless).  Only thing to know from Iqbal:

Quote
Two working principles underlie our decision in Twombly. First, the tenet that a court must accept as true all of the allegations contained in a complaint is inapplicable to legal conclusions . . . . Rule 8 marks a notable and generous departure from the hyper-technical, code-pleading regime of a prior era, but it does not unlock the doors of discovery for a plaintiff armed with nothing more than conclusions. Second, only a complaint that states a plausible claim for relief survives a motion to dismiss . . . . Determining whether a complaint states a plausible claim for relief will . . . be a context-specific task that requires the reviewing court to draw on its judicial experience and common sense . . . . But where the well-pleaded facts do not permit the court to infer more than the mere possibility of misconduct, the complaint has alleged--but it has not “show[n]”--“that the pleader is entitled to relief.”

Basically, it's a two-pronged approach.  Drop all the complaint's legal conclusions, then judge the leftover allegations under the plausibility standard (with the "common sense"/"judicial experience" gloss).

This is a low point for me, just so we're clear.

I would make some sort of IIED joke about you mentioning Iqbal in my presence, but I lack the energy after completing a draft of the open memo today.

Also because I need to be the change I wish to see in this world.

I've been doing this, and it is not going well.

PM me the topic?  I hope/assume it's something like clergy privilege in Arkansas.

You're covering Iqbal in Civ Pro?

Glad to hear my legal education is already obsolete.  I was a 1L in the heady, innocent days of Conley, when Twombly was just a sui generis hiccup in antitrust practice.  We had to plead uphill both ways and so forth.
