Also, check the actual text for errors as well as the footnotes (the bluebook covers capitalization (they love to incorrectly capitalize the C in court), ellipses, etc).
I think I'm done now  :D

So what is the rule on capitalizing court?  Do it only for SC?  Thanks!

You capitalize court if you're referring to the Supreme Court or the court for which you are submitting a brief.  So if you are submitting to the 9th Circuit and you're citing a 9th circuit case, you would say "This Court held" rather than "This court held."

did you really get into law school with logic like that?

violating rules? its called asking for ways to prepare.  It is no more cheating than anyone else asking how to prepare for the lsat, for exams, etc.  Heck, people on this board routinely help each other *write* cover letters, application essays, etc.  Yet you want to get on my case for asking how to *prepare* for the competition?

get a grip.

My guess is a)I attend a more respected law school than you do, and b)I have a biglaw gig lined up, what about you?  My guess is no or you wouldn't be worrying about journal competition.....

Funny how you question how I got into law school based on my calling you out.  Meanwhile my "logic" performance on the LSAT probably blew yours away jerk off.


I just wanted to interject that this has to be one of the douchiest sounding responses I have ever encountered on this message board.   ROFL!

People like this make law school bearable!  Seriously dude, you may have a big law gig lined up, and "blew" the LSAT away- however, i doubt you will have a single date lined up for this summer or any summer after that.(unless you are gay, and that explains a LOT).  My guess is that you are an overweight, under sized a-hole that nobody likes.  And likeability is the key to success.  Just ask Dane Cook.  You aren't likeable.  You will not succeed.

How would being gay explain a lot?



If A is gay, A is bad.
A is gay.

Therefore, A is Bad.

I don't agree that being gay is bad.  But the analysis on 2L man is otherwise correct.
