Here are a few reasons that i plan to use Onenote
First i like Word.  Oneonte is just a glorified version of word with lots of cool stuff that would be great for law students.

-Have as many documents open at the same time as you want.
-You NEVER have to save!
-Type anywhere on the screen
-Better Outlining tools than Word
-Organize seperate "documents" within other documents and link between them.
-Open one program (document) and you open (have access to) all your documents
-Search all your documents for a key word or phrase.

It's kinda like they took ms word and made it for law students.

Check it out.  It's free for 60 days from the microsoft website.
HTH  :)

Maybe it’s overkill, but for my first semester I plan use a little of “all of the above”.
What do you think?

1. read and fully understand what is happening in the case
2. rainbow  brief
3. brief the case on my laptop
4. attend class and take notes (laptop/ MS Onenote)
5. organize the most important parts of each into a short outline

Also, the question about what box to check when stating your highest education (masters, doctorate, etc…) does everyone agree JD’s should check masters? 

I agree that we should not call ourselves “Doctor” as a title, but technically we will receive a “Juris Doctor”.  I think I would check Doctor and feel sure that no one would question me.

I know at least two attorneys that use “Esq.” at the end of their name and I’m sure that neither of them have an LLM or anything beyond a JD.  Are they wrong? 

This is a great thread b/c I have wondered the same question for a while.   :)

ptdixon is right.
the argument is the same for each of these.

using the exact same argument presented here for homosexual marriage:  now insert any of the other before mentioned cases (incest, polygamy etc...) in place of the word homosexual and the argument is just as valid.

Here is what I would like to see happen:

The government should get out of the business of marrying people altogether.
Marriage has always been and should only be a religious institution.

The state should issue civil unions to everyone! (both traditional marriage and non-traditional)  Marriage can be bestowed only through the church (yes that means any recognized church)

As I said before I don’t have a problem with gays or the gay lifestyle…that is to say I don’t approve/agree with it but it’s not my place to enforce my beliefs on others….to each his own.

They are trying to change the definition of marriage, and it is not an irrelevant question to ask what their new definition would be.  If the only requirement for marriage is love then what about (as stated above) a father who wants to marry his son…..a father who want to marry his son, daughter, and cousin. 

If the basis of your argument is that we CANNOT discriminate against ANYONE who wants to get married then we MUST allow EVERYONE access to the institution.  That includes groups of people (because who are you to tell three men that they don’t truly love each other!  Or five family members that they don’t?)

Where do you draw the line?  It is a relevant question and one that cannot simply be ignored as is suggested above.  As soon as we open the door for anyone who is “in love” to get married those (above) people will line up (by the way I love my dog, and he loves me so maybe we’ll sign up for a license!....see you think “oh that will never happen” but who the hell are you to say that I don’t truly love my dog and vice-versa?

This has been fun but I don’t want to get in fight with anyone.  This is just my opinion and no more.  But for anyone who wants to post after this advocating gay marriage you must post your new definition for marriage…you cannot replace the current one until you have one to replace it with.

Shardik, I wish you all the luck in the world making Alabama the heterosexual utopia you desire it to be.  

Again you miss the point.  I don't have a problem with Gays.  I'm only fighing to preserve something i believe in.

Good luck to you all!  I whish you happiness wherever you find it.

This is the greatest country b/c we can all fight for what we believe.

I think we can all agree on that.  :)

I support full, equal legal rights for gays who whish to form a union.
Do whatever you want.  I support you.
Just don’t try to infringe on something that is sacred to me.
