Good thinking.

“Robert Blake’s first wife, Sondra Kerr Blake, stating in a deposition that she heard Blake put out a contract for her life back in the 1970s.”

Despite this, she has continued to use his name for 30 years. That’s true love.

What I learned this summer.

The advantage of spending time in private practice this summer is I got to see first-hand that the average quality of lawyers is ... average. And half of them, necessarily, are below.

Because current & future law students may wonder: does a person with one year of law school know anything useful, legally speaking? I’m here to reassure you: yes, you do.

Because when you’re in your highly selective law school, every day you’re faced with the tedious reality of being surrounded by people who are at least as competent as you and in most cases more so. Your self-esteem just can’t catch a break.

But out in the real world, it’s a different story. Spelling errors. Mistyped cites. Misquoted cases. Misunderstood statutes. Failure to observe basic rules of procedure. The list goes on. I was working on a project where I discovered such an egregious error by opposing counsel that it took me about half an hour to convince myself it was really there. It’s a good feeling.

My OCI plans.

Regular readers will perhaps not be surprised to hear that I won’t be participating in OCI at all. Not now, not ever.

Last semester, a professor of mine was known for frequently taking a moment out of his lectures to rail against the inanity of big firm jobs and the law school culture that pushes people into them.

Later in the semester, same professor was seen at a reception for new law review members held by a big firm (let’s just call them Sk-dd-n A-ps), nabbing some free snacks and advising his students who’d made it to maximize this networking opportunity.

This typifies the “bite hand then kiss ass” relationship law schools cultivate with the world of big firms. Outwardly. they want you to believe that the legal world is your oyster and that you should really devote 20 hrs a week this semester to the Oompa-Loompa Tribal Defense Clinic or whatever because hey man, this could be your career.

But the limits of rebellion are carefully circumscribed by the reality—graduates need to get placed in jobs (because it’s calculated in the US News ranking). The most jobs come from the biggest firms. Hence, when it’s time for OCI, who’s interviewing? Yep you guessed it. Not the Oompa-Loompas. Rather, the biggest, baddest, whitest law firms on the planet.

I don’t have anything against these firms or the people who want to work for them. In fact, I look forward to serving their clients with massive complaints and giving them all more exciting work to do.

For myself, the measure of success in a job search is finding the one job that fits me perfectly, as opposed to flattering myself with 10 offers from 10 firms who happened to think my suit was really nice, and liked my answer to the question “What’s your greatest flaw?“: That I just can’t let myself go home until I know I’ve done my very best.

Ahhhh.

I stopped by school yesterday to pick up a reading assignment and stumbled into the 1L orientation in progress. The three minutes I was there were perhaps the most pleasant spent at law school yet. I was filled with an expansive, peaceful feeling, accompanied by the happy mantra I’m not you ... I’m not you.

1L wasn’t all that bad. But this year will be a lot better. I wish the class of 2008 the best of luck.

P.S. You do have reading assignments for Monday.

What’s on TV this semester.

I call my fall schedule the “flight to quality”. I’m only taking courses with professors whose evaluations ranked them up there with Jesus and John Lennon.

Federal Tax - you can guess what this is about.

Contemporary Litigation - I have no idea what this is about. I’ve been warned that despite the excellent teacher, it’s extremely dull. He says it’s about how lawsuits get going, and why and how they stop. We’ll see if he’s telling the truth.

Remedies - play for cash, play for prizes, it’s your choice.

Quantitative Policy Seminar - this will answer the question whether the world’s problems can be solved by making excel spreadsheets. I already have an idea for my paper, which is pretty insidious and cruel, but I will try to sell it to the professor.

Nature break.

Angeles National Forest, elevation 5000 feet, where I was one hour ago. I’m liking this new 2L schedule. I can see why people take 14 yrs to finish a PhD, there’s just so much opportunity for high-quality goofing off when you’re a grad student.

OK, guess I better go do my remedies reading for today.

PS to 1Ls: this is the “outdoors”. You can save it to your laptop for future reference if you want.

Was it something we said.

Chilly B passes along this report that law school applications are down everywhere, but the biggest drop in the country ... drum roll please ...

Showing the biggest drop in applications was UCLA’s law school, which received 13% fewer, or 6,319 applications, for the upcoming year.

UCLA law school dean Michael Schill said that an analysis of the applicants’ qualifications indicated that a decrease represented a group of applicants who the school would be “least likely” to admit.

“Students who really don’t have a chance of getting into the law school are not applying as much as they used to,” Schill said.

Ah, the old “that’s cool, I wasn’t really that into you either.” Though I’m curious how the admissions office came to this conclusion—how do you determine the qualifications of people who didn’t apply?

MB, this is the kind of high level mathematical analysis I have come to expect from the administration - they are afterall the same people who came up with the seamless transition plan for the curve change policy.

Posted by: MD at August 26, 2005 02:53 PM

I think it’s got something to do with math, projections based off of past years’ applications, see where the projections don’t meet the reality, blah blah blah. Hey, I’m in law school. Why are you talking to me about math? (for that matter, why is the administration trying to do math?)

For a New Yorker, this “festival of mediocre-to-piss-poor pizza” serves as a painful reminder of what has been left behind...

In the crosshairs.

My man “YL” told me my name was on the Jones Day schedule for OCIP. As usual, I was skeptical. But damn! He was right!

I have no idea how that happened. Let me assure you it was quickly fixed. There is now an opening on the Jones Day morning schedule, if you want it.

BTW, doesn’t this home page image from the Jones Day website make it look like two partners are about to be assassinated? Or is that just my imagination running wild?
