Looking at top district courts, like ND/CD CA, SD/ED NY, ND IL, etc. If I take courses like Employment Discrimination, Class Actions/Multi-Party Litigation, Evidence, Legal Ethics, etc., am I going to be looked at disparagingly (provided I get good grades). Assume I'm planning on taking things like Corporations, Admin, and Fed Courts before graduation.
Thanks again for all the assistance in this thread! Incredibly, incredibly helpful.
I'm confused. Are you asking if anyone is going to look negatively at someone taking Evidence, Class Actions, or Employment Discrimination?
Evidence is essential. No one should graduate law school without taking evidence. Class Actions and Employment Discrimination fill many court dockets and many litigators on BOTH SIDES spend much of their careers handling these issues. These are certainly logical classes to take if anyone has an interest in litigation, clerking, big law, etc.
