It's an article about the law school from 27 years ago. In case anyone was bored.



I loved this article.


Count me in you guys, just waiting for their confirmation that they received my deposit.

People will not care.

People wear OSU and MSU shirts here too. I think they occasionally get some snide remarks but it's not really a big deal.

Do any of the 2L and 3L students in this thread have any recommendations for supplements? I'll be a summer starter and I wanted to know if I should be buying E&Es and/or hornbooks before I get to school. I have Clark for Torts and Croley for Civ pro.

I swear, I'm not a gunner! Promise!

JAG, I'll give you a bunch of torts outlines for Clark.

The E&Es are good for both IMO although I don't know anything about Croley.

Oh, I had Croley for Civ Pro. I have an amazing and huge outline for him I'd be happy to share that I got from someone from the year before me who won the Book Award (best person in class). It was super helpful. It's like.... way too big for an outline... but it's like having notes from someone who paid super close attention. :) I have other advice I would give you not on the message board.

I guarantee you some people notice and do this: :roll:
At least, that's what I did when I was a UM undergraduate. :)

Yes, but as the law students are so keen to emphasize, we have nothing to do with the undergraduate school :mrgreen:

Okay. I'LL still :roll: if I see someone in the law library with another Big10 school name plastered across their chest. Come on, we all know Mich is the best. Why wear anything else? :)

Well I'm sure I'll like Michigan and all but I will always be a wildcat at heart. Besides, I doubt Michigan students really see NU as big competition.

I think I'll buy some Michigan Law apparel but I will definitely not be wearing it outside of Ann Arbor. I would feel really awkward if anyone yelled "Go Blue!" to me on the street, as I've heard happens quite often.

Hey, so does anyone know what you do if you don't get the classes you wanted, but you were so confident you would that you didn't select any alternates?

I already wear my Michigan Law shirts here in SF sometimes. I do get Go Blue! shouts, and it is goddamn awesome! :D

As an English/History major, I've thought about the JD/MBA, as I could certainly use a little more business knowledge.

I will definitely turn into a huge Michigan fan :twisted:

How hard is it to get season tickets for hockey games, and do hockey games have decent crowds?

Well if they were undergrads, rightfully so. Who wears another school's apparel as an undergraduate?
If they were law students...what were you doing in our quad in the first place? Hogging our reading room tables no doubt...;)

That said, Clark is an amazing professor. In terms of fall starters, I don't envy people who have CivPro with Cooper. The summer starters have JJ White for Contracts... yeah have fun with that. he's probably going to be your most terrifying professor in class.


IJKL has the best fuckin' schedule next year.

West for Crim
Whitman/Horowitz for Torts
Miller for Property

Primus for Con Law
Croley for Civ Pro
Frier for Contracts


All good/great professors.

For TORTS, Crunchtime cannot be matched.

Get Glannons for Civ Pro. Both the regular one and the multiple choice one.

Definitely overstating things considering the loss of AWBS.
