Building a History of Leadership
Haynes and Boone is a relatively young law firm, but one with an impressive and respected history. We began from the efforts and dreams of one lawyer, Richard Haynes, who was soon joined by his colleague and former student Mike Boone. Together they and many other talented individuals built an organization around collaboration and mutual respect, and on absolute dedication to providing clients with value.

That Haynes and Boone today is one of America’s largest law firms testifies to the strength of their vision.


sounds a little brokeback mouintany to me

don't worry; i'm totally cool with summering at DLA Piper if that's where fate (read: NU's poor placement ITE) takes us.

not yet.. still waiting on them to come back with the numbers


Im guessing it wont be very much. I was explicitly told that they expect students to finance
school mostly through borrowing.

I still think HLS is probably the right call. Going to school for free at any of CCN is an awesome, awesome opportunity and will relieve a lot of the stress that most students face. The way that I looked at it though, is that Harvard is better for any possible legal job and may be immeasurably better if you switch careers later on in your life. Paying back the loans will suck no doubt, but LIPP exists if you want to go the public route and if you stay in the private sector, you'll be ok financially.

Edit: either way, win-win. Congrats dude.

Thanks for writing.. those are definitely some of the feelings I'm having

Celtics > Bulls
Patriots > Bears
Red Sox > White Sox > Cubs

The choice seems pretty clear to me.

Seriously, the clerkship possibilities from HLS are better, and options are there from a larger number of BigLaw firms than from UChi. Although, when you kill it at either one, you're gonna be fine anyway.

If you would have asked me before I arrived on TLS, I would have assumed NW was better.

Rumor is ugly and unkept. A girl I sorta dated is a PhD student in Physics there, and she fits that bill to a t.
