Southbound, where are you from? Just wondering with the "still adjusting to the heat" comment.

I'll definitely be there. My mom is coming through town today on her way back to Pensacola, and she'll probably be leaving right around that time. I'll just meet you guys at the Ale House...I'll just wait outside. See you guys tonight a little after 7!

I just figured if they care enough to put the casual business attire part in with the orientation information, they would have put it with this reception also if they wanted us to dress up. That said, there will be 2 and 3Ls and staf there as well, so looking nice wouldn't be so bad either. :) I'll see you all tomorrow!

In the newsletter it always says "informal" reception, so I was thinking there wasn't a dress code for this thing on Tuesday. They said business casual for the orientation though.

I haven't been to any of these places either, but I also used to go to the Ale House in Gainesville and it was pretty good... good food and drinks and there was enough room for people to sit and talk.

I'll go along with whatever everyone else chooses though. I do not live by the law school though, so if you all choose somewhere over there I could use some information on where to park!

I just checked my email and saw this assignment... I honestly have no idea where to begin. I think it's a very interesting choice for our first case discussion at orientation, but after skimming the first few pages of the case, I can see this is going to be harder than I thought.

I don't know whether we're supposed to just read it and be able to discuss it or if we are supposed to try to brief it. I think I'm going to try to brief the case, although I have no clue how to do that either.

I have:

Legal Writing -- Davis
Property -- Van Doren
Torts -- Knutsen
Contracts -- Bridgeman
Civil Procedure -- Mitchel

And, I agree, we should all get together before classes start.

I have been checking my email all morning and I tried to log in with my FSU ID to get my schedule, but it didn't work. I hope they come soon!

Florida State / Books
« on: August 09, 2005, 07:26:36 PM »
I went to the bookstore today after getting my ID card, and while I can't buy any books since I don't have my schedule yet, I was looking at some of the law books, and there is one that is required for 2 out of the 3 Civ Pro sections that USED is listed as $500. If I actually have to buy that book, I am going to have a serious problem. That is supposed to be our book budget for the semester!

This is the book I'm talking about:
Required Supplement: 2005 Rules of Civil Procedure with Resources for Study: Subrin, Minow, Brodin and Main: Aspen Publishers: 2005 Edition
ISBN: 0-7355-5802-7

I just hope the schedules come out tomorrow and I am NOT in one of those sections!

Current Law Students / admission to the bar -- character & fitness?
« on: July 31, 2005, 04:01:15 PM »
I have a general question about this section of the application to the bar. In my state you have to submit every former emplyer you've had since age 16 or the last 10 years, if you're older, and you have to give a reason for leaving. I was wondering, does anyone know if they actually CONTACT these employers and check up on this stuff? I seriously doubt they'd have the time and resources to do that, but it does say the application takes 6-8 months to go through. I haven't ever been fired or anything like that, it's kind of a long story why I want to know this, but I would really like to know if they contact employers and if so, what do they ask them?

I hope that made sense. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!
