I am having an easier time this semester actually. It is wierd though because for the first 2 weeks of class I couldn't even get myself out of bed to go buy books. A month off spent mostly with friends at the bar absolutely killed me. I couldn't for the life of me get motivated. Then something just clicked and ever since I've been in a nice groove. With six classes it is pretty easy to get into a routine and stick with it, albeit a grind. Hopefully this weekend I can crank out my appellate brief and be done with it.

In my JD it is a 2 prong test.

1) Reasonable

  a. Not greater time/distance than required
  b. does not cause undue harship on employee
  c. not injurious to the public

2) legitimate Business interest

Im assuming they have some work experience, but I guess if one was having trouble finding a nice job in the first place this might be a good thing to do before entering the job market...

Im just realizing how much more difficult Civ Pro I would have been if I had already learned Civ Pro II.

Every single class at my law school has an attendence policy where on the 5 absence, the student is withdrawn from the class. They say it is in line with ABA policy. What do you think of this?

I liked the emmanuels A LOT for civ pro and contracts.

Current Law Students / Getting legal advice from professors?
« on: January 14, 2006, 01:28:34 PM »
Are there any problems with asking a professor for legal advice? My parents are getting sued over pure garbage relating to some property issues and a shoddy contract. The lady suing them is a complete moron and is basing her entire complaint off of a contract that directly involved my dad, but was signed without his knowledge by somebody else who certainly wasnt an agent of his. He has some procedural type questions that could easily be answered by a prof with little familiarity with the situation. I just don't want to commit some big no-no if in fact it is wrong to ask.

Current Law Students / Re: Billable hours question

Isnt the simple answer to this question just that lawyers don't work all billable hours? Work a 12 hour day and bill 6 or something like that???

Getting a job with Goldman is tougher than getting into Harvard or Yale law FYI...

It shouldn't surprise you then that they are paid so well, so quickly. Your average biz grad will get a financial services job in sales and hate their life because it is just one big hustle...
