General Board / National Placement
« on: January 29, 2008, 07:21:43 PM »
I know t14 schools are nationally recognized and a lot of them can get you a job anywhere in the country...I'm just wondering how schools ranked a little lower like 20-40 place nationally...like maybe BC, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Fordham or schools of that type...any experience or input?

General Board / hornbooks

Recomendations on hornbooks for Crim Law, Torts, and Contracts?

Did decent last semester...did the best in the classes I had the most helpful supplements for...so recomendations for the best hornbooks for these classes would really be appreciated.

Are the E&E any good for torts or contracts?

General Board / second semester apathy
« on: January 13, 2008, 08:36:25 PM »
just finished first semester of 1L - did pretty well too...still can't seem to get motivated for this semester, been leaving all my work to the last minute, doing it in the morning before class, and not being able to pay attention at all during class....

Is this a normal thing after first semester? I am gonna end up doing real bad if this continues...does it get better?

General Board / Using your outline on finals
« on: December 07, 2007, 07:23:21 PM »
It seems like a lot of schools allow student to use their outlines for exams...am I wrong in assuming that?

My school doesn't (for the most part) allow you to bring anything into the exam...

So what's the general rule, most schools allow outlines on the exam or no?

Studying and Exam Taking / Civ Pro issue-spotting tips
« on: December 07, 2007, 10:49:22 AM »
the hardest part of the old tests ive been given for civ pro seems to be spotting the issues, for everyone i know, my teacher is a bit tricky - of course taking the exams will help me, but when you study the material as you go, its easier to spot the issues because you know what you were studying...anyway does anyone have some tips for spotting civil procedure issues? It seems like a stupid question, I know...

General Board / Multiple Study Groups?
« on: November 29, 2007, 08:59:57 PM »
1L - noticing some people joining multiple study groups near the end of the semester - are these people just that scared of studying on their own? What's the deal with that?...just had to mention this, think its ridiculous

Law Firms / Worth the move
« on: November 19, 2007, 05:07:19 PM »
At a T2 (#70) in NY right now, If I am thinking I probably want to practice in CA. Would my best bet be to try to transfer to an equally ranked school in CA, or to transfer to a better school in NY? I know this is a transfer-board type question - but a lot of those people have no real job experience and will offer a wide variety of advice I don't want/need...so any input would be great, thanks.

Transferring / Visiting Semester
« on: November 15, 2007, 10:48:15 AM »
Has anyone done/thought about doing a visiting semester at another school? Just wondering what reasons one would have for doing this, and how your home school felt about it?

Thanks

General Board / Taking time off
« on: November 14, 2007, 05:08:19 PM »
So I started law school, and I seem to be doing all right in my classes. But I am starting to think that I may have jumped into this a little too quickly (right after undergrad)...there are still alot of things I would like to do...traveling, peace corps, etc...but now that I have started Law school I am not sure when to do this...

How do law schools feel about taking time off halfway through 1L? Should I wait till the end of the year?
Will taking time off now affect how prepared I am for th Bar?...Will employers be put off by my taking 6 months to 2 years off?

Any knowledge on this would be great...no one I talk to seems to have any ideas
