What's a professor section?

I don't know exactly, that's how my tour guide described it. Go up the elevator to the right side of the library and you'll see. The elevator has a huge legal weighing scale in front of it filled w/ coins. It's where the majority of the professors' offices are at. Really sleek and modern with nice furnishings.


Oh. Yeah, a lot of prof's offices are there. My LRW class is up there too.

That area was awesome! Question I forgot to ask, I saw like an espresso machine and a little kitchenette area, are those open to law students?

They told us we will be getting employment stats tomorrow that should be out next week to all, I will post them up as soon as I get them.

Attax I'm doing the law school walking tour for Thursday and not much else. What events are you going to?


I'm also going to the walking tour and general friday events. I realized I may not be able to make bar review/I'll just show up late to it.



Not sure I met either of you guys at the 4:30 walking tour? I was in khakis and a pink Brooks polo. Maybe I'll catch you at bar review/Friday's activities

Students spend plenty of time there wandering the halls trying to find their professors' offices. It's a maze.

You'd think they wouldn't make the law school any more maze-like considering how confusing the rest of the school is.

Or maybe thats why they made another confusing addition to the school?

I was actually on that floor yesterday to speak to my LRW prof and then I asked her where another LRW prof's office was. Of course it was that other confusing area above student affairs. They can't even stick all the LRW profs on the same confusing floor, they have to divide them up between two confusing floors. I eventually found the office I was looking for but then couldn't find my way out and wandered by the journal offices before finding a staircase down that let me out in George's.

Long story short: I hate this brief

The confusing area above student affairs is at least numbered in a typical fashion. It just took me months to realize it existed.

The only time I questioned whether I actually deserved to be admitted to UT Law was when I spend 20 minutes trying to find my LRW prof's office and kept seeing numbers going up and then going down with no rhyme or reason.

LST has large firm employment at 26.8% for last year. Is that the same? If so, WOW

378 is base. So 33.33% biglaw, 10% fed clerkships

It's gotta be 378 because there are 126 in biglaw. So thus clerkships= ~9%. Total Biglaw + Fedclerk= ~42.3%

Roughly 9 percent clerks it looks like so if they're sitting at 42% big law+clerkships that is good news, especially considering recent classes are like 50 people smaller than that one.

I'm not sure if our class size will actually end up being much smaller due to the buttload of transfers they have started taking each year though.

Beat me to it Attax. Although since I didn't have a pen I wrote the data on my phone and I'd probably get something wrong when posting it.

Increase from 69 at firms of 500+ to 91 this year with the same class size is just nuts though.
