Just figured I'd bust this board's cherry. Go Hoyas!

There is a GULC reading list? Where can one find it?
On the Georgetown Law site there's a section under "Orientation Information" titled "Required Reading" (which happens to be "Gideon's Trumpet"). There's a link to a "list of books recommended by our faculty." Unfortunately, I just tried it and the link no longer works.
I have the list but don't know how different it is from the original as I went through and deleted info I didn't think I'd need. As it is, it is 8 pages long in Word.
Ethelmag, that was a really helpful post--I'm not a total novice where philosophy's concerned, just not at all an expert (alas, if Chaucer and a background in postmodernism were all we needed, I'd be set) and, I, too, would be really interested to hear more first-hand accounts...I mean, this is an awfully big decision for all of us, and the way I see it, the better informed/prepared we are, the better....
Wow, that's a really interesting and possibly troubling something...Thanks so much for posting it! I was an English major in college, and while I did take some philosophy and political philosophy classes, my grasp of legal history and such is about as firm as warm water, and I haven't taken any Econ. Those of you who've signed up for B, I'd be interested in the depth (or lack thereof?) of your background for B...I mean competing against guys who've been reading The Economist cover to cover and philosophical treatises in the meantime....The worry of starting from behind and trying to claw my way to mediocrity is, well, filling me with trepidation--nevertheless it still sounds powerfully alluring...
Thanks y'all. I appreciate those very thoughtful comments.
What I find interesting is, as the thread I've quoted from demonstrates, Curriculum B sounds like a no-brainer--in theory at least. I mean, isn't this why any intellectually curious (and not simply greed-mongering Hun) individual goes to law school? ...
I went on the admitted students website, and there is a new option on the bottom to choose your curriculum.
