A team rules

Wasn't someone suggesting we make message threads/groups for sections a while back? We should start getting on that now.

+1

(The Cornell Law app also has a group feature.)

A pretty well made at that. Play Store has it. Do check it out.

I think they rolled it out for orientation for the first time last year. It was nominally helpful, and no one used it after orientation. No idea if it's any better now.

I did, but it doesn't seem like it's any use for alumni, so I decided to delete it rather than keep granting permissions and accidentally end up back on the events listserv.

Back in my day, we just had section facebook groups.

It seems to have group features (as mentioned), messaging, a calendar, pdf access to the handbook, a map with markers & GPS features, a law school directory, some links to various help pages, and a few other things.

Not really sure how useful it'll be long term either, but a cool idea.

is this aop or the mock class during orientation?

I went to both (the mock class during orientation wasn't optional) and can answer questions if y'all are curious.

So where do we start our section thread/group? May mention that A is doing Crim with B, Contracts with D and CivPro with F.

The orientation mock class. (Someone told me it is already filled up.)

Any reading for it, like a case(s)?

There was one case for the orientation mock class, but it was maybe a page and a half? It's a torts case on battery, and if chenay weyble is teaching it, she's very gentle. She also reached out to individual people to ask if she could call on them and gave them a list of questions she would potentially ask (though tbh I agreed to answer qs and then she asked one that wasn't on the list....)

AOP is more likely to throw you in the deep end ngl (last year it was johnson, bhs, and whelan).

We could start with FB, making a post in the class of 2020 page maybe? That way we can find each other?

Sure. It's only 3 of us in section A ITT but if you are part of the class of 2020 fb page, you could post there re: creation of a group for section A and those interested could then converge there.

Hi! I'd love to know what your schedule and the workload is like. I took a break from studying and had a job after college so now I'm nervous about getting back to studying :roll:


PM'd you the long version. The upshot is to treat it like a job, manage your time well, stay on top of things and law school can actually be pretty enjoyable!


do you mind PM'ing me the long version as well?



I don't believe the user is still super active. Do you mind sending me the long version, Dietcoke?

Gossipy 2L here -

I hear that there is a certain person/small group of people who is/are causing a lot of internal strife in the 1L class with extremist views to the point where section meetings are being held with the administration in order to discuss - can anyone give an anonymous synopsis (ie. no need to name names) of what the drama is?

Yeah, coming late to the party, but this isn’t what these threads are for. Don’t do this. Pursuing this further will lead to bans.
