2012 is coming to a close, which means another year of Supreme Court cases has come and gone. There were ups, there were downs, and there were some head-scratchers. And, since the editorial overlords here at Most Strongly Supported think my law degree qualifies me to write on this topic*, here I am.
Without a doubt, the two biggest SCOTUS cases of 2012 involved the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) and Arizona’s crazy immigration laws (seriously, if the United States was the cast of It’s Always Sunny, Arizona would be Charlie Kelly).
I think a few of the lawsuits were actually filed before Obama even signed the PPACA into law.

If you frequent law blogs (and who doesn’t?), you may have come across this article. Without going into too much detail, the gist of the survey covered in the article is that the vast majority of people (roughly 80 percent) who attended law school would do so again. As I am a law school graduate who has passed the bar exam and has chosen not to practice, you may have asked yourself, “Would Alex do it all again?”
Believe me, it’s not a question I’ve been able to escape. There is no shortage of friends, relatives or associates who ask me what the hell I’m doing with my legal education. Despite the constant pestering, I do not regret obtaining a law degree in the least.
Just because I discovered during law school that my true passions lay elsewhere does not mean that law school was a waste of time.

It’s been a long time since we’ve done a book review on Most Strongly Supported. Too long, in fact.
So let’s get back on the wagon with a look at The Law School Decision Game: A Playbook for Prospective Lawyers, written by LawSchoolExpert.com head honcho and Most Strongly Supported pal Ann Levine, Esq. The book is a follow-up to her bestseller, The Law School Admissions Game, which got rave reviews.
The legal world today is treacherous, and Levine doesn’t shy away from being direct about it. In fact, Levine is blunt (and refreshingly so) about most of the information she presents in the book. Due to the inevitable debt and an unstable job market, Levine says as early as the introduction that entering law school is as risky as ever.

When I was contemplating how to write a post on legal TV shows, something dawned on me: Aside from delightful Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler-filled SVU re-runs, I don’t really watch legal TV shows. Cops shows? Sure. I live to see what cheesy one-liner will end the opening scene of CSI:Miami. You know, the one Horatio will say right before you hear this. Sitcoms? No prob. Nothing and no one brings me quite the same joy that Ron Swanson can. But legal TV shows have never really scratched any of my itches (aside from a brief tryst I had with The Practice back in high school). That said, I did some digging and found a few legal TV shows that both you and I might want to give a shot in the New Year (assuming they get/got renewed). Read Entire Article…
