What is the line up for the program. Is it Mon-Fri of course work? Is there a move-in day and how was the first day like?
Based on what I went through with CLEO, you will have a Legal Writing class, and three substantive law classes including Criminal Law, Contracts, and Property. Depending on the site, you may do Torts in lieu of one of classes just mentioned. The classes are Mon to Fri. Your weekends are free but you'll be a bit busy studying and working on your legal memos.
You will be allowed to move in at least a day or two before CLEO starts. They'll also provide meals and housing which is all covered in the $2K that you pay.[/quote]
Happy New Year!
Thank you for your prompt response. I now see how CLEO gives 1Ls a edge.
My question about the first day was not answered. I inquiring because I am considering to re-take the LSAT in June. If accepted I would like to be placed in the Miami location the same day the LSAT is administered. I wanted to know how the first day is because I do not want to miss a full day of important work. If it's just an orientation then I can most likely catch up the next day.
Btw, what Law school are you attending?[/quote]
I'm sorry I missed your question last time. I misunderstood what you originally asked.
You will be assigned a location long before the June LSAT date. Therefore, it's not likely they'll assign or reassign you to Miami since the LSAT date will likely coincide with CLEO.
I originally planned to take the LSAT in June last year during the first day but I was discouraged from doing so. Therefore, they will likely tell you to not take the June LSAT. They will not allow you to even miss the first day of CLEO for the LSAT. If you do, they may ask you to leave CLEO.
Based on what happened last year, we were expected to have already read our assignments (reading and briefing cases) before the first day. They'll issue you your case books the weekend prior to the first day. Trust me....you don't want to miss the first day because they may also have some workshops that you don't want to miss as well as take care of some administrative matters.
I'm at Missouri-KC.
Hope that helps![/quote]
Thanks for your response. Yeah I will not take the June exam if I am placed in Miami. Just too much to think about in terms of missing a day for an exam, I took already.
