Specifically, I'm thinking about con law and property, though I'm not sure which I'd want to take. Is there any advantage to taking one earlier than the other? Are any known to be particularly easy or particularly difficult? In case it matters: I want to clerk, and while I'm considering shooting for PI work, I want to have biglaw as an option.
Con Law was the most requested class, 184 people were in the lottery for 90 or so spots. Property has two sections, so you will likely get it if you bid it. That said, you may not get the Professor you want.
I enjoy Corporations. It's a bit like advanced Contracts.
not sure i'd say corps is like advanced Ks, but to each is own. strikes me as more like a cross between torts and Ks - fid duties, agency, etc. i think the closest corps gets to being like Ks is understanding what the deal that is being litigated is all about. i loved corps and M&A, and i was not a fan of Ks.
