Randomness from a 2005 graduate of The Moritz College of Law at The Ohio State University

Day 2 of journal orientation continued to be good. I am so glad that I chose the crim law journal. The other people are already getting attitudes. Law students are arrogant enough to start with; they don't need anything else to boost their ego. The big firms are coming in to talk to the Law Journal people and give them breakfast and lunch. They're feeling the love I guess. In no way do I feel like I am part of something any less important and I wish they could respect that, but it's not worth it to care.

Today we had a lecture by the library ladies. They explained to us how to request books from other libraries and they threatened us with fines and told us not to leave anything in the carrels. It was highly interesting.

Then Professor Berman came in and talked to us about how wonderful the Blue Book is. The funniest part was that in the middle he was trying to tell us how he knows all these little details by heart and when he wrote his example on the board he got the name of the law review wrong. It's always nice to see a professor be less than perfect.

We got our first assignment today. We have about 45 footnotes to check. It's not a regular assignment though, so it's not too stressful. The first volume comes out in September, so they want us to basically proofread the articles one last time. When we're done we turn it in and it's a competition between the teams. So I will defintely try to do a good job, but it hasn't turned out to be the most awful week ever like everyone predicted. So far I'm happy with journal. |
