What's a good 2L schedule?

What's a good 2L schedule?
« on: April 06, 2009, 06:55:25 PM »
Other than advanced con law, my school doesn't require any specific classes after 1L.  There are so many courses to choose from that it is rather overwhelming trying to make a schedule for next year.

Thus far, I'm sure that I want to take at least:

Administrative Law
Business Organizations
Evidence
Commercial Law

And then I'm also sort of interested in:

Crim Procedure
Energy Law
Health Law
Employment Law
Trusts & Estates
Immigration Law

Also, there are one or two clinics that look interesting.  Obviously, I can't take all of these classes/clinics my 2L but how do I prioritize?  I'm going to be doing an externship this summer.  Is it worth doing another clinic during the school year?  They seem like they would be really good for networking but might look sort of skimpy on a transcript.  I'm sort of interested in a clerkship after I graduate so I thought I probably couldn't go wrong gearing my schedule toward what a judge would want me to take.  What would they want me to take?

Classes I'm familiar with

Admin = Very hard class (one of the hardest in law school). Useful, but don't be taking a ton of other hard classes while you are taking it. Attracts gunners.

Evidence= Boring, but essential if you want to anything that involves trials. Not that hard, but as with anything some professors try to make it so.

Crimpro= Very easy material. You get to read cases like Miranda v. Arizona, which is kind of fun.



I would also recommend Tax. It's a lot more interesting than most people think.

Interesting.  I don't think of Admin as a gunner-heavy class.  Just about everyone takes it at Chi.

What are you talking about?  It's the beginning of April.  Is this just, like, ambient anxiety?

Whatever that is, I likely have it.
