I have been away from this board for so long.  I remember a year ago I was on here constantly, and I remember when Downy first appeared - for those of you who remember, he started the controversy with that picture on his icon of the boy in the special olympics.  i think it is hilarious that he is still tormenting this board.

Current Law Students / Re: International Law
« on: February 05, 2004, 10:48:52 AM »
To sum it up broadly.... and i mean broadly because international law is so much deeper than what im gonna explain here.... international law is the treaties and laws that determine how states interact with each other and conduct themselves in a worldy prospective.  The highest judicial authority of international law is the International Court and the administrative authority is the United Nations.  it can be so much more than that though also... such as economic development within countries, the embargos and sanctions that countries place on each other, etc.

As an international lawyer, you may find yourself representing organizations and companies in ways such as representing their organizations on an equal footing with foreign investors, governments, multilateral organizations, contractors, consultants, etc., develop and implement policies that promote the interests of their organizations, and so on.

International law can be interesting, if you are the type of person who likes politics and the different government entities throughout the world. 

i suggest you look into it to see if its something that would fit you.


and applyingsoon - what the hell are you doing on a discussion board if you are jsut going to criticize what everyone says and not give anything worth reading?  he asked what international law is, not what some prick has to say about absolutely nothing.  get a life, bother someone who gives a *&^%.

i was wondering if anyone was a current student at any of the following schools.  These are the schools that I applied to, and I wanted to know how the students who go there feel.  How is your library, class size, faculty, facilities?  Do you live on campus, or do you commute?  what is the campus like?  what is the area like?   Is there anything you feel that I should know that may influence my decision to go there?  anything you could tell me will be great. If you do not go to taht school, but know something that think may help me, please let me know.  It's one thing seeing a pretty brochure and seeing the school ranked on a list.  It's another thing to hear about the school from the people who know the best: the students. So here's where i applied:

Denver law school, Seattle law school, Syracuse Law School, Marquette Law School, Michigan DSL, Vermont Law School, Maine Law School, Catholic University of America, john marshall, University of North Dakota, and the University of Wyoming.


and on a final note, i am now extremely poor because of the application fees :-D 

thanks for your help!  ;D

this is such a great idea, i love doing things like this, as corny as they may seem to some ppl  ;D

Ive been keeping a journal since highschool.... and my journals might be my most important tangible objects to me.  Sometimes, when im in a less than preferable mood, i'll close my eyes, pick a journal, open to a page, and re live that day.  I know, its corny, but its nice to go back in time sometimes.

Im hoping on those days where Im wondering why I ever wanted to go through the hell of law school, or Im missing my family that is 27 hours away, those journals will remind of how excited I am right now, and how fast time flys, and that no matter how miserable I am or how hard it seems, its gonna pass and become just another page in my journal of life.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: confused

ok.... how about taking this opportunity you have to experience something new?  The US is so big and expansive, that there are many different experiences out there just waiting to be taken advantage of.  Im assusming from your post that you are from Cali.  Once you begin working there, you wont really have the opportunity to spend that much time in NYC.  NYC is amazing, and if you have the opportunity to live there, take it, even if its only for a few years.  It will only enrich the person you are and the person you are going to become.  The doors of opporutunity don't open for everyone, and they usually only open once or twice in a lifetime if you are lucky, so take the opportunity and try something new.  How awesome would it be to say "yeah, i lived in nyc for three years and went to law school there".

as for the money - do good in school, no matter which school you choose, and you wont be worrying about it.  You'll pay it back.  The experience is worth the money.
