Lasers and I have been taking questions here: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=173522
Maybe we should just keep it to the thread we already started to have our collective wisdom in one spot

I didn't notice your thread until I posted mine. I'll contribute to that one when I get around to reading it.

However, I like the idea of having another thread... basically to spam TLS. It bumps Hastings up on the forum list. I'm not a major advocate of Hastings but there are a lot of things I didn't know about Hastings, or law school, until I moved here from NY.

I also think now that the first semester is over we can give better advice.

Massey is killing me at 8:30 - 9:30 AM Mondays through Wednesdays. Anyone feeling my pain?

I didn't know we had someone else from our section here! And yeah, it really sucks. I hate con law. And I hate everything else about this semester, too.

I like crim and tax so far. Diamond seems like an older and more hyper Takacs.

I like crim actually, so I guess I don't hate everything. I just hate how almost every class gives more work and we have more classes.

Haha, I can't fault your logic there. Moot Court is much more of a time killer than LWR. There were more lurkers from our section here?

Constitutional law would probably be fun if it wasn't for being so early. I'm in to history and legal theory. Massey looks like Professor Kingsfield from The Paper Chase.

Moot Court is the worst time sink possible. I hate it. Everything about it.

Diamond's amazing. I love his enthusiasm and the Disney references are excellent.

Are there more people from section 5? It seems like all the 1L's from Hastings come from section 5 (me, sf, lasers, dilda.)

It's already 1/2 way through the semester and I still can't find motivation to really put effort into my work. All the supplements and outlining still feels empty.

Does anyone else feel the same way? Or have most people gotten back into the knack of law school and feel confident about the home stretch?

At least Moot Court is essentially over.

yeah even though i've tried my hardest to get things done, i really haven't really studied much of anything. i felt i was a lot more on top of things last semester...can't be a good sign.

couple people i know have been at the library all break; i wonder how they do it.

I never got my outline back either. I'm guessing Boswell ran out of time before his vacation. It's a shame because feedback would have been wonderful.

I'm glad I'm not the only one feeling unmotivated.

I hated contracts, but I liked the grade. Didn't make a good cutoff for transfers, so see those of you that remain next year!

Contracts was my best grade of the year, so I love that class :) I'll be here next year too for sure. What classes are you guys taking?

I'll be back. San Francisco is probably the best place to be "forced" to stay another 2 years.

it's cool cause i get paid, but the research is boring and tedious cause there's so much of it. i actually picked up a cool government legal internship with homeland security (that i will start soon pending a background check), so i'm probably gonna be working two jobs this summer.

how's your judicial externship?

yep. the internship with the govt. is unpaid though (but that's to be expected).

I heard a research position looks good for OCI. What types of law are you guys planning to practice?
