Miss TJ's Double Play? Now You Don't Have To.

Time used to be that about every other day, someone would post a comment about how bad this blog was, and how much better TJ's Double Play had been. For those who don't remember, TJ's Double Play preceded UVA Law Blog (indeed, it was when it went offline that FFJ and I decide dto change the name of this blog and attempt to 'go big' in chronicling 2008 OGIs . . . seems like ancient history now).

Anyway, for those who want to confirm that TJDP really was better (we concede the point...), a good chunk of it has been archived over at uslaw.com. You can view summaries of all the entries, and if you create a (fast and free) login, you can view all the entries themselves. It brings back some fond memories of 1L year for current 3Ls, and maybe even a little more for alumni:

That's a lotta debt

Posted on April 22, 2008
BW&V once quipped, there's nothing funny about six-figures of debt, but if you think about it, seven-figures of debt would be hilarious. That's what were thinking as we browsed Above the Law's recent survey on associate debt. It's truly scary to think that 10 percent of the class of 2000 still has more than 100k in student debt...

We're sending this to Leno

We liked this LawWeb headline:Don't Compromise Ethics in Human Experiments, Bioethics Expert SaysO rly? Ethics expert favors ethics? What's next, "Seminary Student Announces Belief in God"?

We read property . . . once

Posted on April 22, 2008
Imagine you're a 1L with a property final coming up next week. You lost your book early on in the semester and so finally after a while you get around to ordering a replacement from Half.com. The book arrives you're relieved now that you can learn about takings...

Trivia's cool . . . totally

Posted on April 22, 2008
Ha, "Anonymous" won the Events E-mail trivia. Then again, we usually make fun of the week's winners when we see them.

Read more.
And who knows - one day in the distant, distant future, they may post about how much better UVA Law Blog than (whatever comes next). Enjoy . . .

You should have an open thread every Friday to discuss matters of importance for which you don't have a post.

Monday: How many 1Ls will killself or commit suicide due to not making a single journal?

please. if these 1Ls are delusional enough to come to law school in the midst of the worst recesion to hit the legal market in the past century, then getting DINGF@G!'d by some mediocre secondary journals won't cause them to killselves (tho it probably should)
