Sorry about the hiatus -- law school has been keeping me way too busy for a variety of reasons:
1) The acceptance rate of articles for which we have extended offers is a lot lower at this point than we anticipated. We are still actively pursuing articles and trying to get them to land in our journal without sacrificing quality. All I have to say, is landing great articles is a lot more difficult than I expected -- especially for a top 10 law school. I also have to say that I am surprised at the utter crap that gets published. I mean complete and utter crap. Crap that a person could write with minimal effort and thought. Not that I am an expert on this stuff -- I am still just a law student, after all.
2) I'm doing a clinic this semester, and I just have to say, I am surprised at how pervading tax issues are in so many aspects of the law. I have been actively trying to graduate without taking a tax course, but I may actually succumb next semester and take one before I graduate.
3) Compressed classes are keeping me way too occupied too. Who knew that doing 2 credits in 1/3 the time of a normal semester would mean six hours of class per week, plus about 250 pages of reading per class. I barely have time to eat, let alone sleep.
Sorry again for the hiatus -- I hope I haven't lost some of you. For those of you transferring this year, I hope your transitions are going smoothly. I'd also love to hear about them -- you can always drop me a line.
Wishing everyone the very best,
