(We always haggle over the scoring system beforehand.) Yesterday, while perusing the news, I stumbled across an article detailing a law suit between Yahoo and the NFL Players Association disputing who owns the rights to real-time player information during games.

To me, it was a sign: it's time to think about setting up a league for Vandy 2012. Work hard, play hard -- it's more than just studying and drinking, right?

So, to the upperclassmen, I ask you: who normally takes the lead in setting up such a league? Because I'm more than willing to be that guy.


I'm definitely down to join a league if you wanted to start one. I haven't been a part of one for a couple years and I've missed it. I'm sure there will be enough people interested.

Haha, our league was pretty fun last year, and I anticipate this season is going to be even more intense b/c $ will be involved.

It's gonna be another 14-team league---any 1L's are free to join the waitlist.

Put me on that waitlist! I'll be meandering over to the Facebook group today to post about it.

EDIT: just posted about it. (Secret identity revealed!) Now, somebody bail me out and comment on FB so that I don't look like a complete tool.

EDIT: Never mind this question :). Everything was solved by the very helpful people at the Vandy Financial Aid office.

Just got admitted and pretty sure I'll be attending. Obviously I don't know anything about the housing situation but does anyone on here need a male roommate? PM me!

Check the facebook group - there are roommate discussions on there. I believe it is called Vandy 2012 or Vandy Law 2012.

Congrats, gogators. There's a pretty big UF contingent in our class, though other SEC alums frequently made jort jokes last year...

You're into IP, no? If you're interested in finding out about Vandy's IP curriculum, contact this guy. I think jojo had him as a prof last year...
http://law.vanderbilt.edu/faculty/facul ... lty_id=174

These two also help place 1L's into the summer WIPO program in Geneva (see http://www.wipo.int/portal/index.html.en). Not sure how many are doing it this summer, though I know of at least one...
http://law.vanderbilt.edu/faculty/facul ... lty_id=226
http://law.vanderbilt.edu/faculty/facul ... lty_id=212

Of course, there's also the Vandy GC's office. I have a friend there as well this summer, but not sure what he's exactly doing there:
http://www.vanderbilt.edu/generalcounse ... perty.html

If your 1L year isn't too busy, you should definitely try to revive this and get a symposium back in Nashville:
http://law.vanderbilt.edu/student-resou ... index.aspx


Hope that info helps. Good luck with your decision.

Thanks for that great information! I did decide to attend Vanderbilt this fall so I'll be seeing everyone there come orientation. On a side note, I find it hard to believe that at least somebody hasn't kept up the IP group but I think it should definitely come back in some fashion.

Did a whirlwind tour of Nashville/Vandy over the weekend...It was a lot of fun. I've been nervous about moving to the South (I have been south of the Mason-Dixon a total of one time in my life), but it was charming...I think I'll be happy to spend three years there.

I also scored an amazing apartment -- a little less than a mile from Hillsboro Village and about a 20-minute walk from the law school. I couldn't be happier with this place and I am still kind of in disbelief that it worked out.

I will also add that I have to agree with the stereotype about the...aesthetic qualities of the student body (pun marginally intended). I did not expect to find Miami Beach in central Tennessee. (Disclaimer: I say this with full agreement from my future wife :).)

Just curious since I just joined, do we not know what classes we'll be taking this fall yet? I know we obviously won't know our section yet, but I wouldn't mind knowing what classes to look forward to.

Yo rez - can you pm me with info about the interviews you got? Specifically, what is your tactic? Did you mass mail, write very detailed cover letters, have ties, apply to certain types of firms or do you just think it was your sweet job this summer?

Summarized the Class of 2010 2L Summer employment here: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=81274

We'll be putting up the full list probably when I get back to school in August. For the rising 2Ls who may find value in seeing where we all worked, the Recruitment Handbook (from which these stats were pulled) should be on the intranet somewhere.

Hey, can anyone give a heads up on how to know what books to buy, for online buying purposes? From the Facebook thread, I've learned that the books for contracts and torts may be the same for each section, or may not be, and for everything else you need to know what section you're in first. So I guess that means bookstore? Any help would be great. Sorry if this has already been covered.
