Biglaw classes

Postby nigelfrost » Wed Mar 02, 2011 4:53 pm

Tired 2L preparing for penultimate semester's registration (don't you love "penultimate?" say it out loud...penultimate). Thoughts on which of these two would be better for the BigLaw gig I've got going on: International Law vs. Commercial Paper? If you don't like either, what would you recommend? And yes, I already read this thread: http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=138316. Not helpful.

0Ls & 1Ls, not interested in your uneducated opinion.

On the one hand, this isn't employment related at all. On the other hand, you clearly only posted this to mention your firm job.

Even better than "penultimate" is "antepenultimate." You'll be surprised by how many times you'll want to use that word in contract-drafting.

What the hell is a commercial paper? Is it a brand of toilet paper?

It seems to me those are both in the same hand.

Just to clarify, you're preparing to register in the near future for classes that don't begin for about six months? Is that common? My school does fall registration in July. Oh and I think those options suck. That's what you have to pick from or you legitimately want to take one of those classes?
