What is the overlap between the upperclass writing requirement & journal requirements? I read something about a "seminar track" - is it possible to use your writing requirement paper as the note you submit for a journal?

And if not: is it a bad idea to try to do the writing requirement & your journal note within the same semester?

I think almost everyone uses their writing requirement paper as their journal note

Thanks for the response! So how would this work if I'm on TTL but my WR class has absolutely nothing to do with Tax?

depends on whether or not you want a good shot at getting your note published. If so, probably sign up for a tax related 3 Cr WR seminar. If not, sign up for a 2 Cr tax class with a paper requirement and just hand in that paper. It's almost never going to be less work to write a note on your own.

Can't you just like...not do it.... seeing as TTL is leaving GULC? like what would the negative consequences be?

To respond to the original question: do Cohen's Tax Policy seminar if he does it again. Everyone gets an A/A-, he basically assigns the paper and gives you all of the sources he wants you to use.

But to the bolded, really? I thought they solved their issues with the ABA? TTL was easily the best journal at GULC.

Yeah apparently NU offered to staff it with only tax LLMs so TTYL TTL

ETA as someone personally invested in a non TTL journal, I must disagree with the bolded on principle

i took a non-tax related class and found a tenuously tax related topic that was related to that class and double counted it and am not being published, but again there's really no reason to worry

Anyone know if many students from the area just live at home to save $$$ and commute by car/metro? Anyone know (or wish to speculate) if this has been a hindrance in terms of doing social activities (not due to parents but due to distance)?

Yeah I know a few, depends on how much effort you're willing to put in some seem pretty social, some seem pretty asocial but those attitudes probably existed before hand. Also note that they mostly drive to school which seems like a nightmare and also pretty expensive

Don't you have to like stand up all the time?

Gewirz front desk and "student guard" (sit at desk and pretend to look at ppl's IDs) seem like good bets.

At the circulation desk? IDK they seem to have stools or whatever. Checking IDs is mega low energy but you do have to fake look up every 3 secs. Library probably permits for more sustained down time.

Has anyone had Michael Diamond for Corporations or Grinberg for Tax -- and if so, do you have any supplement recommendations?

Any thoughts/reviews/warnings for Westmoreland, Buzbee, or Pasachoff? They're teaching the regulatory 1L electives this year, and I'm curious if there is anything/one we should watch out for or not miss. Thanks.

Word on the block is that buzbee sucks and from experience pasachoff is great
