Should I study Law!
« on: January 20, 2009, 03:37:57 PM »
Hi,
Law as a subject really interests me but I'm not sure whether I'll be a good Lawyer while arguing in court!
Are there good options for somebody like me in the field of Law

I don't know?  Maybe you should practice punctuation instead;

Law as a subject? "Somebody like me"? You'd need to be more specfic on all accounts in order to elicit helpful feedback. Punctuation aside (though attention to detail is crucial in this field to say the least), it sounds like you need to do quite a bit more research about what it means to practice law before such feedback could be worthwhile for you.

Ok, bear with me, I'm new to this place. I've caught on to most of it, but what does flame mean?

I found these definitions with a quick Yahoo search, and they seem to be good ones.

A "troll" is one who is deliberately antagonizing or posts with the main purpose of getting a negative reaction.
Example: Posting in a thread about Duke- "Duke is lame- Michigan is the only school worth going to!  Go Wolverines!"

"Flaming" is a personal attack on another member of the message boards.
Example: "Tim Mitchell, your undergrad stinks, your LSAT score stinks, and PJC could whip you in a street fight. ;)

Ha, got it, thanks. No flaming intended on this post, though I'm gathering that it can be hard to convey tone accurately when giving advice through this medium... Not the place to go for subtle ;o)

This board is actually a bit unique with its terminology.  Here, "flame" is more often used to refer to a disingenuous or outright fake post (or poster) designed to get people to respond.

People have time to bother with that? Kidding, sort of, but between a full time job, studying for the LSAT, and learning acronyms/lingo for wedding boards & law school boards, anything beyond necessity is cutting into my couple hours of sleep each night ;o)
