That was a great post by him originally. As to Soccerlaw if it is possible some local bar associations have sports leagues and I am going to presume you enjoy soccer by your screename. If you can get on a bar association team as a 0L it is a great way to meet people and lawyers love to give advice so that is a suggestion.
You can find your local bar association by typing X city bar association. New York Bar Association for example. http://www.lawyersleague.com/soccer/newslettersoccersum04.html
this is something I found with a quick google search soccer lawyer league, but I imagine if you joined a bar association you could find something more on point. If they don't have one suggest it to them they might be happy to do it might even let you start the league who knows.
Even if you don't do the sports league join your local bar associations, which are usually very cheap for law students in the neighborhood of 15-30 bucks and you get invited to a lot of great events.
