I vividly remember that day, and that moment, when I finally decided to study law. I was 17, fresh out of the Pre-University Science College, looking for non-Science, and pro-English avenues, when I zeroed in on Law, from amongst options which included Literature, Journalism, Commerce, Business Administration, and the like.
Five years have gone by and here I am, only a few months away from earning the degree I have chosen for myself – B.B.A., LL.B. In hindsight, when I look back over the past five years it’s hard to highlight only a few moments that stand out. Every moment that has passed by has taught me oodles of lessons that not even the best of law schools could have taught me. Life with law has changed me and exceeded all my expectations!

Tales of woe from real law school students.
What happens when a law school's SBA website is more impressive than the actual school's itself?!? Doesn't that suggest something....like maybe it's time for the school to bring itself up to the 21st century....for it's own sake and the sake of it's reputation. See for yourself. http://cwslsba.com/ versus http://cwsl.edu

If you are on law review, have a publishable article, and the Notes Editor does not like you, what do you do? Publish your note in another journal without telling him, of course.
