General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: First Year Law Classes

I will be a 1L this fall and this rigid course load seems a bit overwhelming for me. I really feel completely clueless on this new journey. Anyone have any good advice?
You are probably no more or no less "clueless" than the rest of us.

Advice: Breathe   ;)

Pro se against the Feds?  That should end well.  If your passport is up to date, I hear Paris is lovely this time of year.

I'm sure everyone will say take the Law Review because it is more prestigious and has longer legs.  Another reason, which may or may not carry more weight, is to take it because it is the "harder" of the two.  You wouldn't want your mentors or your peers to think that, given the easy road or the hard road, you will always pick the easy route.

Give me something new, take a vacation to Costa Rica with your parents, sneak out of the villa hit up some underage transvestite hooker while you wear a giant baby diaper and smoke hash and on your firms credit card maybe Iíll read the next post.
Somebodies been reading my DIARY!

OP, I found it mildly interesting (for internet fare).  One small thing that I found distracting was the male character knowing the females clothes were "out of fashion" or "last years fashion".  It was reminiscent of Legally Blonde.  On the whole, there is only so much rich kid angst I can swallow.  However, that is a personal bias.  More power to you if you can turn it into cash. heh

you have my interest. Any examples or just rumors on the street.

Some stats on misconduct

As an ex-officer and hopeful criminal defense atty., I've been looking at this kind of stuff for years in preparation (probably warped my brain by now :) ).  It isn't "BigLaw" sexy, but it's about as real as it gets.

Aren't prosocuters considered almost like cops? Aren't cops banned from convictions?

No.  There are police out there with criminal records either before or during their time as an officer.  What you don't know would shock you.

I have been dying to just get started but as it gets closer, I start thinking, "Am I up to this?"
