An Introduction to “Biglaw”
(9 days ago) An Introduction to “Biglaw” Published April 2010, last updated September 2010. The term “biglaw” pervades the pre-law online community. It is sometimes framed as the natural career path for ambitious students, sometimes held up as an almost unachievable prize, pursued mostly by the foolish and uninformed, and at other times spoken of ruefully as an unavoidable fate.

NJ, DE, and PA firms
(1 days ago) Ultimately chose the Philly firm. I liked the people at both. For me, two factors were important. (1) Even working in DE, I would never want to live in Wilmington, and would want to be in Philly. So, if I worked in DE, the commute would be long on top of already long biglaw hours. (2) I was interested in litigation.

Cornell Law School

Receiving law school fee waivers from "reach" schools

Success in Your First Year of Law School
(8 days ago) Before Law School Begins. 0L Prep. Every law student will advise against trying to learn the law before law school starts, and many 0Ls think they know better and ignore that advice - I certainly didn't listen as a 0L! That said, trying to learn the law by reading supplements before you begin law school is a bad idea for several reasons.

(1 days ago) New law school graduates--even those with prior careers--don't just catapult into higher-level roles because, as Nixy says, law school doesn't really teach you any of the practical things you need to practice as a lawyer. (You learn how to bluebook and do legal research, but those would be irrelevant to the jobs it sounds like you want.)

How much is too much loans
(1 days ago) After law school I am looking at 210k, possibly more, of student loans between undergrad and law school. I know this is a long and winded message, but I guess my questions is, is Boston University worth 200k? I don’t know where or who else to ask this question.

Best Schools for Civil/Human Rights Law
(1 days ago) The problem is that "human rights law" is both a very narrow and a very overbroad category, so it really depends. If you're talking about international human rights law in the sense of being a lawyer for Amnesty/a similar NGO, flying around the world, helping oppressed populations, then Yale/NYU/Berkeley would be the top of my list because of the clinic and …
Which firm has the most prestige and
(1 days ago) When I was in law school, I was also very focused on picking a firm based on exit options, but with hindsight, now realize that would have been nearly impossible to do. The only caveat is if you are looking to exit into a particular market--for example if your friend wanted to exit in Boston, it would be hard to argue with Ropes, but even then

Boston College vs Boston University
(Just Now) BU is a much more firm-oriented law school; our career services is changing to become more well-rounded and has made great progress in doing so (they're very aware of public interest opportunities and send weekly emails to let us know what they are and what's new in the public interest sector), but BC may be better for public interest.
UC Irvine School of Law
(Just Now) Law firms, government agencies, and legal aid societies want in on the action. Irvine is the major business and financial hub of Orange County, which has a reputation (thanks to The O.C. and Laguna Beach) for producing rich, spoiled white kids. The people of Irvine are more than this, though, and such a minimalist depiction of the nation's most
what do law students think about skadden Forum
(1 days ago) to OP's rather narrow (and sort of meaningless, but whatever) question: I think the top law students from top schools think of Skadden as "good" but a step below S&C and DPW, but when I've talked to law students from lower schools and we discuss various firms they've often like "I don't have the grades / whatever for Skadden".
