Law School Roundup #181

Welcome, ladies and gents, to Law School Roundup #181...but first, a shameless plug:

If you are an incoming 1L: Welcome to the support group  the legal fraternity. In a few short years, you'll be sitting in the a proud member of the bar. Until then, you may find from time to time that you need a little help. Kel, over at A Woman In Law School is running a weekly give-away for 1L study aides. Head on over to her site and leave a comment each week on her drawing post, and you'll be entered into a drawing to win the study guide of the week. The rules are here, and the most recent contest post is here. Get thee to entering! And keep frequenting this site, and the links along the side, for advice on living as a law student.


Now then. Without further ado, here's this week's selection of good posts from law students current, aspiring, and recovering.

How public—like a Frog—

To an admiring Bog!
