3) What in the hell does the CLR write on consist of, and is there anything I can do (or classes I can take) to sharpen my skills for that write on?

I didn't do the write-on, but it involves writing a 1-2 page personal statement (20%), a casenote (60%) and an editing packet (20%).  Less than half the class finishes the write-on, so you have a decent chance of getting on if you simply finish the packet.  More info here: http://clr.boalt.org/write_on.php

Thanks.

On an unrelated note, do you think that once all the "boalt" goodies in the bookstore are gone, they will be gone forever?  Seems kind of sad.

Has the rebranded merchandise made it into the book store yet?

I wonder if they're gonna change the diploma frames too. I still haven't ordered mine. Maybe that was a mistake.

I'm not sure.  I haven't been to the bookstore in a while.  I imagine they'll have new stuff sometime soon.

Hey Ruskie,

What's the attraction of working for BIGLAW in a secondary market? Have you summered at BIGLAW in a secondary market yet? Have you summered at BIGLAW in a primary market? I'd be interested to know the differences, is the clientele as interesting and large scale in secondary markets?

Thanks

I summered at two BIGLAW firms in secondary markets and now work at a BIGLAW firm in a primary market. For me, the initial attraction of the seconary market I chose, was proximity to family and a love for the city -- Atlanta. The compensation is somewhat lower there, but the hours are also far less crazy than in NYC. I think it evens out. The attraction of a primary market is also obvious -- big city, bigger clients, more money. At the end of the day I really can't decide what's better. I see myself eventually going back to a secondary market. It really depends on what my boyfriend and I decide to do.

Are biglaw hours in London similar to those in places such as NYC? What is a typical workweek in terms of hours for you?
