I've only had Buss, but I'd go with her for evidence. I'm waiting until the Spring to get her again.

I say Buss for Evidence. I've never heard anything bad about Leiter, but I've heard lots of good about Buss.

Secured Transactions with Baird is a good class but will be packed with smarties - it will also likely have a bunch of B-School kids like his Bankruptcy class had last winter. Baird's reading is typically very light so I think it might be a good 4th class if you're interested.

How do we get into clinics?  I'm top 20 on the Employment Discrimination list.

I've got a classes question, too.  I don't think this has been covered.

Is Legal Profession a "save for 3L" class?  I like getting graduation requirements knocked out early, and it fits nicely into my schedule.  But I haven't heard of any other 2Ls taking it this quarter.  Thoughts?

I took it as a 2L last Spring. There were quite a few 2Ls were in that class, but we were clearly in the minority.

I don't think there's any steadfast rule about this. If you have an open spot in your schedule, don't see anything else you want to take, and don't mind taking this version of Legal Profession instead of one offered later... go for it.

If your preferred clinic is FCJP, there are some strongly recommended classes. So keep that in mind. You could talk to the director of the clinic (Alison Siegler) to get a rough idea of your chances of getting in, just so you can plan this year.

Am FURIOUS about being waitlisted for Con Law III. I already read the first assignment, dammit.

Furious? This happens every quarter to some class, where it is over-subscribed and something else is already in the bigger classrooms. Just show up the first day. Chances are enough people drop it so that you can get in.

Isn't the first assignment, like, 6 pages, tops?

Calm thyself.  Save the righteous anger for something really important, like how CBIs stopped having the good lunches.
Juicy: UChicago

It sounds so reasonable when you say it.

What sort of lunches do CBIs have now?
