Yeah, I mean even if its not 3k a week its some of the easiest money you'll ever make.

Why are you not dropping out if you have no interest in law and have something else lined up that doesn't involve legal work?

Because I'm taking on zero debt in my third year and I can work full time while doing the bare minimum to pass. The time commitment would be like 10 hours a week and cost me nothing more than that. Since I've already sunk two years into it I feel like I might as well finish.

We're to believe you are an SA getting paid to write on TLS all day. Is that the deal here?

There are people with full time jobs sitting around posting on TLS, what's your point?

No there's not. That is total BS.

Unless Jobs = flippin' burgers. Maybe then.

Based solely on your comments here I am 90% certain you've never had a desk job before.

I've been around law offices since before Jr. High... having me believe lawyers/SAs are sitting around posting on TLS all day, not happening.

You're at a 1L SA right now aren't you? Somehow you're able to post on TLS. Who cares. Stop shitting up the thread.

My office doesn't have a window, so no, I can't do that.

Just cuz your dad's shitlaw firm is full of shitboomers who don't know how to use technology doesn't mean associates at bigshot firms can't take these things called "breaks" during which they do whatever the fuck they want.
