Current Law Students / what to get out of a mentorship specifically?
« on: February 07, 2009, 10:20:12 AM »
I got a mentor assigned to me from a local bar association I joined, and we had lunch this week.  He's a partner at a BigLaw firm in DC, really nice guy.  I just figured we could just be "friends" ya know and if I needed advice I'd give him a ring.  But he asked me specifically if there's anything I want to get out of the mentorship.  Any idea?  I was just going to play it by ear, but since he asked specifically, and asked me to think about it, I thought it wasn't a bad idea just to mull over it a bit.  Thoughts?

Current Law Students / Should I do Mock Trial?

I don't see the point much... just a ton of extra work.

Is it worth the pain?  It seems "everyone is doing it".

Incoming 1Ls / GW's list of Books and Films relating to the law
« on: May 28, 2008, 09:18:45 AM »

"We have here assembled for you, whatever the length of your legal experience, titles where the law figures in literature and cinema. Whether you are just starting out as a new student, are currently in law school, or are out in the field, anyone intrigued by the law may turn here to find titles to engage you, whether for work or pleasure. "

That's an insane list.

Incoming 1Ls / GW Degree in Boston after 3 years of practice?
« on: May 23, 2008, 08:57:47 AM »
I'm going to GW, but I'd like to practice in Boston eventually when my husband and I have a family and all that... probably 3-4 years after I graduate from law school, we could potentially move back to Boston to settle down.

I know GW is "semi-national" so is it feasible to get back to Boston with a GW degree after one or two solid jobs in DC?  I will have less debt from GW so that is something...

OR... if I get off the BC waitlist should I just go there at full sticker?

Incoming 1Ls / How far along are you in your moving plans?
« on: May 15, 2008, 07:40:32 AM »
My husband and I put our house on the market this week, he's landed a job offer in DC, and we found an apartment for July.

Things are moving along.  How about everyone else?

Choosing the Right Law School / GW vs. BC
« on: May 12, 2008, 09:11:47 AM »
As I'm making plans to move to DC to attend GW, I'm still on the BC waitlist.  But I'm wondering about career prospects between the two schools since @ GW top 1/3rd seems to be clutch, but at BC, there's no rankings unless you want to publish them to schools yourself or something?  Seems like BC students below the top 1/3rd as much less screwed than GW students below the top 1/3rd.  Thoughts?
