I think Law Review and Moot Court would rank ahead of SBA as far as employers are concerned.  You could do more than 1, just make sure you don't stretch yourself too thin. 

Although I'm interested in what Mary said and have similar, albeit distant, feelings about stuff like graduation, I would like to hear more about what people think about SBA v. Moot Court v. Law Review and can you do more than one (although probably never all three)?  ::Longest run-on sentance ever, over::  Thanks for the help!

No problem troll.

Yeah and you're obviously a troll judging by your last 4 posts that are ridiculous one liners.

Obviously she is a psycho.

Thank you for coming down to my level. That was easy.

Just make sure you don't get too much "stuff" because you will never have time to look over it. 

Although some would disagree I think it is best to stick with 1 supplement per class - whether it be a primer or a commercial outline.  For example I think Examples & Explanantions for Civ Pro is more than enough without any sort of commercial outline. 

Restatements - At my school we used the Rest. of Contracts in class, but I never touched nor knew anyone that read the Rest. of Torts.

Never even heard of the ABCs of the UCC so I don't know if it would qualify as a must have.

I think it depends on the individual.  I did not join any because I knew it would make me rely too much on everyone else.  For some it is great to help learn about difficult or confusing areas.

It was nice that you sent out emails to members of the board as well.

I think if you do the program and practice it is very helpful.  It is not something you can just go over and expect to work automatically.  I am sure some practiced and applied the methods that did not like it, but I imagine many who think it is a waste did not.

There really isn't any studying involved in the version of legal writing I took.  Our grade was based on a brief, a memo, an oral argument, and participation type grade.  I guess the best way to do well is to edit and make sure you don't make dumb mistakes.  Also if your professor is anything like mine he/she will be more than willing to help you out. 

I am not sure if the legal skills class you are referring to is a legal research type class, but if it is mine was just pass/fail.

I haven't taken the class yet, but my professor for fall semester suggests E&E.

It really depends on the school from what I have heard.  If you attend a nationally respcted school then it should not have much of an effect, AND can show a connection to the area or a solid reason why you want to be there then you should have a shot.
