I did buy the business cards... why the hell not? Worst case scenario: you have 250 cards you didn't use... best case scenario: you run into a firm's partner or a judge and land a job. At worst, you lose 25 buck :shock:

Yes and no. Yes, that is the 2013 Tex Penal Code. But that's not published by West so it won't have whatever West has in terms of additions (related statutes in other codes) and annotations, if those turn out to be substantive. West doesn't list a 2013 ed. on their website, FWIW. http://store.westlaw.com

I would wait on this and see what the prof has to say. I can't imagine your first reading includes reading from the penal code, and if it does, use http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/ and hope someone else gets cold-called.

(What you've linked would be interesting has the strikethrough/underlines to show changes passed in the most recent legislative session.)

thanks for responding...I didn't want to order it since it wasn't from West and then I wondered if I was overthinking it.

Enjoying the neuroticism on the Facebook group (and the contributions of people ITT to the discussion).

So is it too late for a TLS meetup before orientation? I'm literally just playing videogames, eating, drinking, and sleeping from now until Monday.

Society shirt optional?

Speaking of which: Has anyone had a group outing with their society yet?

I'm also thinking of maybe going to the thing on Thursday. I missed the big outing at Flying Saucer.

When is wokeupinacar going to throw a party?!? :)

Society tee shirts are always credited.

My mentor group has a meeting scheduled but I don't think it's for the whole society?

Wokeupinacar is now CrashedaUHaul.

Edit: Also seeing the phrase "one dollar margs" is to me like reading "locker rental site now working" is for others.

Well I figured that since my goal is to never bring any of the books home because I'm likely biking to class I'd want space for that. Also I want space for my helmet and maybe for like shit for the gym. If I don't need both I assume I can give one back. I have no idea how big they are

I'm finally in Austin. I just got situated in Riverside (yesterday). I feel kind of far from the action. If you all want to do a TLS meet up on Friday night, I'm in. ;P

Hopefully you're not living at the same place that those LLM students got their stuff stolen from!

I am not at UE; I heard a lot of bad stories about that particular complex (which kept me away from there).

The burglary of the LLM students' apartment confirms the bad stories. :P

I don't think I am. I might put up an announcement for a concert on 6th street tonight though; my friend's band is playing and they actually don't suck so it might be a good way to get some 1Ls drunk.
