Day Two: Entering The Profession

by Announcement

Thanks to everyone for a banner day yesterday, with over 1500 visitors and a host of mentions across the blogosphere. A special thanks to the readers who left comments or e-mailed their thoughts -- we're excited by the initial response and hope to earn your loyal readership with consistently great content. To that end, today we're excited to present four essays on "entering the legal profession":

Scheherazade Fowler, "What I Didn't Learn In Law School"

Tony Jensen, "To L With 3L"

Nick Morgan, "The Grading of Young Lawyers"

Evan Schaeffer, "Complications Mar the Law School Birthing Process"

UPDATE: TPB chimes in with "On Thinking Like A Client: My Views on the Knowledge and Understanding Necessary to be an Attorney."

Yesterday's post introducing ourselves, this blog, and our "opening day" posts by Howard Bashman, Douglas Berman, Lawrence Solum, and Eugene Volokh can be found here. Stay tuned tomorrow for a set of perspectives on "being a student."

We hope to post some replies throughout the day, so check this floating intro post for updates. Enjoy!

These essays are good, but is anyone ever going to post here?

Yes, indeed. You can find an example--Jeremy's post--below. The intro post, perhaps deceptively, is "sticky," i.e., it stays on top even if something is subsequently posted. And, of course, once the symposium is over (Thursday or Friday) normal blogging will begin.

People are bound to start posting. As for myself, although I've enjoyed the articles, there isn't much to comment on really... or, at least, not much I disagree with.

Oh, and happy birthday to James Madison -- Federalist Society members everywhere lift a glass in his honor.

Well, next time we'll just have to post content that's not so flawlessly airtight and right-minded. ;)
