Best law school tote?
« on: March 01, 2009, 10:01:54 PM »
I bought all the supplements today, and now I'm trying to figure out what tote to get. What do the "
pros" suggest?

Do you mind looking like a geek? If not, get yourself a wheeled backpack. CalPak makes some really good ones. I started using one after I had shoulder surgery midway through my 1L Fall semester and I haven't regretted it. It's held up pretty well to the daily abuse, being hauled from classroom to library, from the car to the conference rooms. Casebooks, supplements, snacks, even a legal dictionary... it all goes in there.
Yeah, I know what it looks like, but the convenience is well worth it.

Clearly, you should take a full-on suitcase to  class, along with 2 days worth of clothing, food and rations, so that you can spend extra time in the library (Think it's not open 24 hours?  Think again.)

CLS gave us free backpacks this year during orientation.  I'd say about 70% of the 1L class uses it...it's pretty solid!

Clearly I need to start taking swag into account when I pick my school.

I'm thinking about getting unnecessarily large Louis Vuitton trunks and schlepping them around to class like I'm in the Darjeeling Limited.
If looks could kill, you would be an uzi.

I might go for trash bags held together with duct tape. That's what Ron Jeremy uses instead of luggage.

*In clinical studies, Matthies was well tolerated, but women who are pregnant, nursing or might become pregnant should not take or handle Matthies due to a rare, but serious side effect called him having to make child support payments.
