If you guys had the choice of interning with a judge as a 1L or going to summer to school to boost up the GPA, which would you choose?

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality...  I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word - -Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King

You absolutely need some legal work experience over the summer.  Ideally, I'd suggest doing both; take 1 or maybe 2 classes, and work part-time some where.

If you can do only one, judge. If you can do both, both.

That SUCKS!  We had people listening to music even on closed book exams.  W&M doesn't lock anything down.  It is all honor code.  They juswt trust us not to cheat or have our iPod playing a recording of LEEWS or whatever.   :D

I found it vaguely insulting that our school has us under an honor code and then acts as if we'll disobey it -- open-book in-class exams using lock-down software, no music, etc.


no *&^%.  its like 'we absolutely think you will cheat'

I guarantee that there are law students that cheat, at every school. It's just a matter of when they think they can get away with it. If you aren't one of those people, you should be glad that you have a restrictive testing atmosphere. Otherwise those cheaters would be pushing you down the curve
