We didn't even have TAs for LRW. What benefit could they possibly provide?

We have LRW TAs too but they're called "Dillard fellows," presumably because they needed the fanciest name possible to entice people to do it (just kidding, I'm actually pretty sure there's a tryout and it's really competitive. People definitely want to do it here and the Dillard fellows are probably awesome legal researchers and writers). Anyway, they're just there to read all of our crappy memos so that the actual LRW profs don't have to read 2000 pages of godawful 1L legal analysis.

Our instructors aren't even professors, they're like post docs (kind of). And then TAs are 3Ls

Being a LRW prof sounds like a pretty sweet gig. I wonder what it takes to be a LRW at Cooley.

My sump pump failed during a big rain storm, my basement flooded, and to limit the damages I have spent the last four hours bailing water. I am sure that tomorrow my back will be killing me.

This is still better that LRW.

That honestly sucks. Sorry to hear about it. I hope you were/are successful in preventing much damage!

yeah, but the upside is that they're basically baby profs (meaning that they're really smart and did really well in law school) vs the kind of person who becomes a permanent LRW professor (sick maniac)

it does suck for you though that you have TAs reading your shit instead of the actual climenko fellow

Incarcerated without having battered a prostitute. His experience is like the game when a toddler chews on the controller.

Doubt being kicked off the team if he was convicted is that much of a bummer at that point.

Ours are 2Ls/3Ls picked by the professor. I asked mine what they get out of it, and they don't get class credit or anything. Potentially a good rec letter but sounds like that's it.
