Stop Exclusively Using Your Law School Email Accounts

by Joshua Auriemma August 2, 2012 Law School

You’d be amazed at how often as a lawyer I find myself rueing my terrible decision not to back up my law school email account.

Just a quick note to our law student readers in the market for a new Mac: BGR reports that credible sources say Apple’s yearly back-to-school special may be $200 off the purchase price of an iPad (with the purchase of a new Mac).

As someone who sold his first generation iPad to pick up an iPad 2, I have spent the past month considering whether the upgrade was worth the cost. The short answer is: probably not. The increased processor speed is great and noticeable. Unless you find the first-generation iPad speeds unbearable, however, the speed increase just […]

The Bramble Bush; a great book if you have no idea what to expect from law school

by Louis Grube August 6, 2010 Law School

It had recently come to my attention that I was not really prepared to start law school.  I was moving across the country to attend a school that had agreed with me about how great of a match we would be, and I was starting to sift my way through the pile of “going to […]

iPad for Lawyers and Law Students

by Joshua Auriemma April 28, 2010 Geekery

So I was one of those dorks waiting in line at 6am on Saturday morning when the iPad launched. I had my new “toy” in time to attempt to run my Advocacy II trial from it.  I looked at a lot of apps that might make this possible but I settled on ReaddleDocs.  Having successfully […]

by Louis Grube March 9, 2010 Advice

by Joshua Auriemma February 8, 2010 Advice

I know, at least at my law school, students are afraid of trial advocacy.  Maybe they’ve heard that it’s a ton of work, or maybe they’re just reluctant to speak in public in front of other attorneys, judges, and their classmates.
