Law School business cards
« on: August 08, 2006, 12:16:19 AM »
I was wondering seeing these on my school's site, and hearing some people talk about them, do people really get these?  Are they worth buying when you start to hand out to friends/aquaintances?

Your friends and acquaintances should already have your information.  However, for networking purposes they could be beneficial.
The president's approval rating has dropped to 33 percent, matching his low in May. His handling of nearly every issue, from the Iraq war to foreign policy, contributed to the president's decline around the nation, even in the Republican-friendly South.

I got them just for convenience sake.  They were pretty cheap through my school, and if you're at any kind of event where you can network, it just makes it easier to give out your email/phone number when someone asks for it.

It is definitely great for networking... potential employers AND potential women  ;)

To save time, just put a 'kick me' sign on your back.. To me, having business cards as a student sends out vibes that one is trying too hard. I think I will start carrying out blank cards or something to write information that I want people to have--perfect for separating info you give girls to and info you give employers to, for example. :)

i had them in undergrad as well but i rarely used them. i would get them only for convenience sake--i don't think there is any detriment to having them, however, I need to get savier about those software programs that allow you to scan and sort business cards. i detest having piles of business cards to keep track of

i'm not sure.  sounds a little over the top to me.  i do see how they could come in handy for all the fancy networking in law school.  but still...  so aside from the obvious, what would one put on the card?  class year? law school name?  favorite food?

sexual orientation.

Classic. I think law school business cards are reserved for gunners.
