It also depends on what level you're talking about.  I externed at a state supreme court, and all I did was research and write bench briefs.  I almost had the chance to help write an opinion, but it went to another justice's chambers.  I loved my externship.  Friends of mine externed in the lower courts, and they got to draft opinions on a regular basis.

The most ironic mistake in the new edition is in the index:

"Mitsakes in quotations, indicated by "[sic]," 69

Yes, that's "mitsakes."

I love it.

Mr. Smells-so-Bad,

Please shower before class.  It's not like our class is a morning class and you just rolled out of bed (or maybe you did).  You freaking reek.  At the very least, please stop with the over-the-head arm stretches.  Every time I am exposed to your pit fumes, I have to concentrate to keep my lunch down.  This distracts me from the learning process (unlike my internet surfing, which has absolutely no effect whatsoever).

I went to three colleges, and I got in.   :)

Hi folks,

I am the Executive Director of CALI.  Ran across this discussion and would be happy to entertain any questions, ideas or suggestions for materials or content or lessons.  We constantly adding new lessons and have recently started posting short podcasts on some topics.  What topics would you like to see?

Crim pro!

Now that I'm a little over two months away from putting this law school beast to bed, I think I can safely say that it was easier than I thought it would be.  I mean, yes, I worked my ass off, but I didn't pull "all-nighters," I didn't lock myself in the library during finals, and I very rarely took a book home with me. 

I think almost anyone could graduate from law school if they didn't have to do it in three years.

Would you recommend them over the E&E's or are the E&E's ranked higher in priority?

I love the CALI lessons.  I used them throughout my first two years.  Some are better than others, but generally they're a good review. 

I depends on the subject area.  I tend to prefer CALI because I hate buying extra stuff, but some of the CALI lessons are a bit thin in certain subjects.

Any student who forgets his or her locker combination is charged a $20.00 service fee for padlock removal.

Forget that, I'd just buy bolt cutters and cut that little sucker off myself, although I might look a little suspicious walking through the halls with bolt cutters.   :)
