Everyone at our school would say federal judge in a heartbeat.  Good luck getting the gig.  Heads up, if it's like Southern District of Texas, you'll need to bring your own laptop and make sure to get yourself authorized for lexus/wl summer usage b/c the judges tend to not have machines/log-ons.

Yeah, I'm going to say you should just pay them back for all the time you've wasted there.  Matter of fact, you should probably give them treble damages, just to be sure.

In all seriousness, I'm really excited to have copped this gig.  I think any experience you catch regarding Evidence and Crim Pro prior to taking those classes is great, especially helping those who need a little more help.

Well, the ability of a 1L to judge my intentions through 2 sentences is almost as good as Senator Frist diagnosing Terry Schiavo via TV.
@ no one in particular:
What if I told you that where I live there is no state or county level public defender, only appointed private practice types who can't really afford to pay 1Ls...would you still think I don't want to be there?  Would you think that if I told you I worked Trial Defense Services for the Army for 8 years?  Would you think I said I "hoped" people don't get pigeon-holed so that more people would be persuaded to learn about indigent defense and not worry about repercussions at OCI for jobs that most people don't get?

I was happier when they called me back with an offer than when I got accepted into a law school in the first place.
But, if Penumbra's read is wrong, I hope Dashrashi will clarify their irritation.

I second that.  Why?

I really hope not.  I'm splitting my summer with them, but they're paying $20 an hour, which in this economy as a 1L at a T4 school, I almost crapped my undies.

The yahoo group was pretty skimpy on info, but can anyone speak to when decisions might come out?  I've seen one thing that said April 15, but 1 item does not make a trend.


My wife visited and had comparable grades to yours.  I don't think they care about grades as long as you can get the letter of good standing and can show a reason.  If you go, be really aggressive about trying to link up with 1L orientation and scheduling, so you can get an ID, email, etc since my school pretty much left my wife hanging when she showed up for class.

Dude, it's not like you're in the bottom half at Wesleyan, St. Mary's, or Texas Southern.  Slap yourself on the face and get back into things, but don't burn yourself out by mid-March

I'm studying for Civ Pro final, so my head's somewhere else, but isn't the prior performance exception to the SOF only for goods(ucc 2-201)? 

Funny, this sort of fact pattern was our practice midterm.
