The Law School Do Over and a Potential Comeback

I know that we haven't updated in a long time (almost two years!), but that's because all of the regular contributors to this blog have long since graduated and are submerged in the world of billable hours, document review, legal research, court appearances and the like. But we may be making a comeback. Or at least an attempt.

If you are a law student who has found this blog helpful in the past -- or even just stumbled across it today -- and you're interested in contributing, let us know. Send an email to wishiwouldhaveknown@gmail.com. We're looking for regular contributors as well as guest posters.

In the meantime, check out this excellent blog post that, while a bit humorous, has a lot of truth in it: Law School Do-Over: 7 Things I'd Do Different

I, myself, was guilty of a number of these things in law school: #1, #2 and #6, in particular. And working for an appellate court judge after I graduated quickly broke me of #3. Oh, the things I wish I would have known then that I know now...

Hello,

My Name is Cosmo Miller and I am the Affiliate Manager at James Publishing’s affiliate program currently managed by Commission Junction.
James Publishing has become one of the best sources for practice-oriented law books in the legal service industry. Over the decades we have encouraged our authors to load their books with time-saving motions and pleadings, client letters, and step-by-step procedural checklists. We have also sought heavy doses of pattern arguments, model questions, pitfalls to avoid, and practice tips. You can find out more about our catalog by visiting us at: www.jamespublishing.com

I contacted you a few days ago with a business proposal in my mind. I didn’t receive your reply and I thought that maybe you had never received my email.

I wanted to take a moment to reach out regarding an opportunity for us to partner up, whereby you’d be earning commissions on sales your referrals made through an affiliate link on your website.

The commission earnings start from 25 percent and go up depending on your performance.
If you join our affiliate program, and put up any two of our promotional materials in your website by 20th May 2013, I will increase your default commission level from 25 percent to 27 percent.

Finding a good lawyer can be difficult. I have been looking at lawyers in the Victoria BC are and each one is different. Maybe you should try and contact friends to find a lawyer that fits you.

Look for an attorney with years of experience in helping people petition for joint custody. Try to find somehow who has a successful track record.
