I'm just summarizing the questions and answers. I tend to be verbose when I don't restrict myself.
Q: Is a floppy drive necessary for the laptop?
A: Not needed. She doesn't have a floppy on her laptop and has done just fine.
Q: Mock Trial/Moot Court, when, how?
A: Moot Court can be done all three years of school. Mock Trial is only done the 2nd and 3rd years. The 1L competition starts in the Spring. It coincides with the Brief Writing class. You can get into the competition without being in the class, but it helps to be in the class when trying to get into the competition.
Q: What kind of forums/message boards are there for the Law Students?
A: The pre-admissions boards shut down once school start, and everyone associates in their mentor and small groups. She didn't mention any other message boards we get access to, so if there are any that are used, they probably aren't as well frequented as I myself would like.
